Genesis Electrified GV70 2023: pricing and specifications revealed for GV70 EV in Australia


Pricing starts at $127,800 before on-road costs, making the electrified GV70 a cheaper and quicker SUV proposition than a Mercedes-AMG GLC 43

Pricing has been announced for the first electrified Genesis GV70, which starts at $127,800 before on-road costs.

The new electric variant is set for release this month (September 2022) and will crucially provide an estimated battery range of 445km (WLTP) per charge. 

The electrified GV70 is positioned cheaper than one of its biggest competitors – the Mercedes-AMG GLC 43 – yet has very similar performance on paper to the twin-turbo V8-powered GLC 63 SUV

The GV70 electric competes in the electrified space with the BMW iX3, Mercedes-Benz EQC and even the smaller but still important Kia EV6 in all-wheel drive form. 

Performance and power from the new electrified GV70

The electrified Genesis GV70 features a dual-motor all-wheel drive powertrain that produces total outputs of 360kW/700Nm and is powered by a 77.4kWh battery pack

Power is split evenly between the front and rear axles where there is a total of 180kW/350Nm available at each end. 

The result is a 0-100km/h time of 4.2 seconds, making the electric GV70 much quicker off the mark than the 3.0-litre turbocharged V6-powered Mercedes-AMG GLC 43 that achieves the same sprint in 4.9 seconds. 

Genesis technologies in the electrified GV70

The electrified GV70 features several new technologies to aid with comfort and functionality. 

Large screens fill the luxurious interior space

The electric SUV has a smart regenerative braking system which allows one-pedal start and stop, eliminating the need to use the brake pedal. 

A disconnector actuator system (DAS) features on the electric GV70 that works by connecting and disconnecting the electric motor and drive shafts by seamlessly offering both rear- and all-wheel drive. 

Genesis’ active noise control reduces noise inside the cabin by creating opposite sounds to cancel them. Genesis says this makes for a more refined in-cabin driving experience. 

The GV70 can read the road to look out for potholes

Optimal drive comfort is possible thanks to Genesis’ use of an electronic control suspension preview function that scans the road ahead and can account for bumps or potholes in the road surface.
