Genesis GV60 specifications and featuresThe Genesis GV60 was unveiled in September 2021 and you can already build and configure your vehicle on the brand's website. Still, Genesis hasn't provided complete technical specifications for the model. Top speed, acceleration, turning circle, and other details are still missing. Nevertheless, we managed to compile in one place the GV60 specifications for all three model variants based on official Genesis data. The model is available in three versions, each with a 77.4 kWh battery: And here's some general information about the design and noteworthy features of the GV60 from its announcement:

The GV60 is a high-performance electric vehicle with a sleek and athletic coupé crossover utility vehicle (CUV) design that is expanding Genesis' 'Athletic Elegance' design identity into the sustainable luxury space. Featuring Two Lines lamps, the front design perfectly complements the vehicle's refined and voluminous body. Iconic and instantly recognizable, the Two-Line design is a symbol of Genesis vehicles. The Genesis signature Crest Grille moves to a lower position to accommodate cooling requirements specific to the dedicated high-performance EV platform. An EV-specific detail that highlights Genesis' transition to the sustainable era.

As a first for Genesis, the GV60 features a Clamshell Hood, a single panel that combines the hood and fenders, creating a sleek impression. The vehicle also comes with a new wing emblem on the hood. Decorated with the Guilloché pattern often seen in luxury watches, the thickness of the emblem has been reduced by nearly 80 percent compared to the previous one. The GV60's body surfacing is seamless and minimal without undercuts or character lines. Yet, the muscular volumes bulging beneath the surface pushing out the wide stance characterizes the visual presence of GV60. The coupé silhouette, streamlined from the hood to the spoiler, solidifies a more athletic profile with a short overhang and a long wheelbase of 2,900 mm.

In addition, the chrome Volt DLO (Day Light Opening), which begins from the top of the windshield towards the rear with a distinctive V shape, is another design element that demonstrates the dynamism and anti-conformist style of the GV60. Further, the GV60 accentuates its cutting-edge look with digital side mirrors and electric door handles. The handles automatically pop up when the driver approaches the car with their smart key.

At the rear of the GV60, the coupé roof profile ends with a distinctive fixed wing spoiler. The shoulder volume of the rear fender, emphasizes the vehicle's side stance, further highlighting its dynamic, high-performance electric vehicle image. The finishing touch of the GV60's rear is the Genesis signature Two Line lamps.

The interior design of the GV60 takes on Genesis' design ethos of the 'Beauty of White Space', while seeking to create a spacious and comfortable interior. At the same time, its floating architecture and unique details combine to create a unique look. The Crystal Sphere is one of the most compelling design elements of the GV60. It is not only an aesthetic element of the interior design, but it is also built to create an emotional connection between the driver and the vehicle. When the vehicle is turned off, the Crystal Sphere becomes the vehicle's mood lights, adding to the aesthetic of the driving experience. When the vehicle is ready to drive, the sphere rotates and the Shift By Wire (SBW) appears, creating an indoor atmosphere of futuristic mobility.

The floating console, where the Crystal Sphere is located, looks as if it is hovering in the air, working with other unique features such as the slim cockpit and flat floor to provide passengers with a maximum level of openness. In addition, the next-generation infotainment system – the connected car Integrated Cockpit (ccIC) – connects the cluster and navigation into a panoramic display, creating a high-tech look and outstanding usability.

To create a truly luxurious driving experience, various components in the GV60's interior, including the Crystal Sphere, the horn cover, the door handles, and the side mirror controllers, are decorated with circular embellishments. To make the GV60 more sustainable, various parts are created with eco-friendly and recycled materials. The seats, door armrests, console armrests, and crash pads are made with plant-based leather. The seat covers and door center trims features fabrics made with yarns extracted from recycled PET bottles and fishnets.

The GV60 is available in total of 11 colors, including four new colors: São Paulo Lime, Hanauma Mint, Atacama Copper, and Atacama Copper Matte. Other colors include Vik Black, Uyuni White, Matterhorn White, Saville Silver, Carbon Metal, Melbourne Gray, and Royal Blue. The interior is available in a total of five colors: Obsidian Black, Torrent Navy, Ash Gray/Glacier White, Monstera Green/Camel Beige and Monstera Green/Glassier White.

The GV60 is equipped with innovative technologies to provide a unique electric vehicle experience. Face Connect is a feature that allows the vehicle to recognize the driver's face to lock or unlock its doors without a key. The feature uses a Near Infra-Red (NIR) camera to provide accurate facial recognition under virtually any circumstances – including in the dark or when the weather is cloudy. It also leverages Deep learning technology to improve accuracy. With Face Connect, the Head-Up-Display (HUD), driver's seat, steering wheel, side mirrors, and infotainment settings can be adjusted based on the driver's customized settings. It can be automatically connected to individual driver profiles, providing a new level of convenience that makes it seem as if the vehicle recognizes the driver. The GV60's Fingerprint Authentication System allows drivers to start and drive the car without a key and offers an authentication function for in car payments and release of Valet Mode.

In addition, the GV60 will feature a Digital Key 2 for the first time in a Genesis vehicle. This is an upgraded version of the existing digital key, enabling drivers to open the door without using the smartphone. Drivers can enter and start their car by simply touching the door handle and the digital key can be shared to up to three people.

The GV60 is Genesis' first vehicle to be built on the dedicated EV platform known as Electric-Global Modular Platform (E-GMP), marking the brand's move towards electrification. It is available in three models: a standard rear-wheel-drive model, a standard four-wheel-drive model, and a performance model with four-wheel-drive. Each model features a 77.4 kWh battery, and the standard RWD model features a maximum driving range of 451 km per charge.

The standard RWD model is equipped with a motor that features a maximum output of 168kW and a maximum torque of 350Nm. The standard AWD model is equipped with a 160kW motor for its rear wheels and a 74 kW motor for its front wheels, providing a total output of 234 kW, a maximum torque of 605Nm, and a maximum driving range of 400 km per charge. (Estimates provided by Genesis R&D Center based on Korean EV certification system and 19" wheels)

The performance model features two 160 kW motors for the front and rear wheels, delivering a total output of 320 kW, maximum torque of 605Nm, and a maximum driving range of 368km per charge. It is an ideal option for customers seeking a fun driving experience. The GV60 comes with a Boost Mode to give it a more dynamic and luxurious element. The mode immediately increases the performance of the vehicle's maximum output, making the driving experience more dynamic. The Boost Mode button on the steering wheel activates additional performance for 10 seconds. This enables the vehicle to go from 0 to 100 km/h in just 4.0 seconds.

The GV60 is the first model to feature electric-Active Sound Design (e-ASD). The system provides various virtual driving sounds through the speakers based on the driving mode, the vehicle's speed, and accelerator pedal data. Customers can choose from three sounds. It also features Road Active Noise Control (ANC-R) technology to minimize noise and uses various sound-absorbing materials to achieve silence while driving. In addition, the electronic-Limited Slip Differential (e-LSD) enables an optimal amount of torque to be distributed to the wheels when turning around at high speeds, improving performance when cornering and starting off. This offers drivers more stable control on slippery roads and in snowy or rainy weather.

The GV60 also features the Preview Electronic Control Suspension (Preview ECS), which uses information gathered from the front camera and navigation system to recognize situations that could have an impact the vehicle, such as speed bumps, in advance. It also controls the damping force of the suspension according to the surface of the road to offer passengers optimal comfort. The GV60 also features a MacPherson multi-link suspension system for the front wheels, a five-multi-link suspension system for the rear wheels, and R-MDPS (Rack-mounted, motor-driven power steering) to enhance basic performance, including handling, comfort, and stability. The AWD model's Disconnector Actuator System (DAS) separates or connects the motor and the drive shaft according to driving conditions. This allows drivers to freely switch between RWD and AWD, minimizing power loss and ensuring efficient driving.

The GV60 is the first model to feature a battery conditioning function that manages the battery's temperature to ensure optimal conditions. Battery conditioning is a function that not only preheats to secure better performance when the battery temperature is low, but also shortens the amount of charging time by adjusting the battery temperature. By pairing with the infotainment system, it allows drivers to optimize battery conditions while searching for a fast-charging station on the navigation.

The GV60 applies a 400/80 0V multi rapid charging system that boosts the 400 V supplied by the charger to 800V. It is optimized for the vehicle's system thanks to the vehicle's driving motor and inverter, enabling stable and rapid charging with various charging infrastructures. When charging at 350 kW with the ultra-speed charging function, the battery can be charged from 10 percent to 80 percent in just 18 minutes. Furthermore, the charging time for the slow charging function has been shortened by increasing the charging capacity from 7.2 kW to 11 kW. The GV60 can also be used as a mobile power source, as it provides a V2L (Vehicle to Load) function that enables its battery to charge other electronic devices. The V2L function supports a 3.6 kW charge, which is higher than the power supply in the average home. This gives customers the freedom to use electricity regardless of location when camping or enjoying outdoor activities.

The GV60 is the first Genesis model to apply a next-generation infotainment system, ccIC (connected car Integrated Cockpit), which links clusters and navigation into a panoramic display while seamlessly connecting content throughout clusters, navigation, and HUD. The cluster connected to navigation provides key information for safe driving via a three-view display for maps, navigation (normal/AR mode), and ADAS (Advanced Driver Assistance Systems). It also enables drivers to easily grasp a variety of information related to driving, phone calls, media, voice recognition, and more through cluster split screens that integrate all the information on trip computer and navigation. The enhanced connection between navigation and the Head-Up-Display (HUD) offers existing HUD data, as well as information on ADAS, phone calls, voice recognition, and media information for drivers' convenience. The 'welcome' and 'goodbye' greeting animations strengthen the sense of integration throughout the system by interconnecting the cluster and navigation monitor.

The GV60 is also Genesis' first to feature a Bang & Olufsen sound system. Genesis collaborated with the world-class Danish audio company, which was founded in 1925, to developing a component for Hi-Res Audio output and offer customers the best luxury sound experience. With a tap of their finger, using Bang & Olufsen's dedicated sound control interface, drivers and passengers can choose a sound mix for specific atmospheres encompassing four 'moods' (Relax, Energetic, Bright, and Warm). The 17 speakers complete the premium audio system. The aluminum grille that features Genesis' G-Matrix pattern emphasizes the vehicle's sophisticated design and maximizes the sense of luxury.

The Relaxation Comfort seats help the driver and front passenger feel comfortable while charging or parking the vehicle. The Ergo Motion Seat with seven air pockets ensures extra comfort, especially for drivers. Moreover, the Smart Regeneration System 2.0 helps optimize energy regeneration by automatically adjusting the regenerative brake according to traffic data and navigation map information. i-Pedal (Intelligent Pedal) mode allows the driver to accelerate, decelerate, and stop using just the accelerator pedal. This mode can be activated under the strongest regenerative brake stage, which can be selected by utilizing the paddle shift. It not only enables one-pedal driving but also maximizes regenerative brake, increasing the car's driving range.

The GV60's safety and convenience features include Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist (FCA), Lane Keeping Assist (LKA), Blind-Spot Collision-Avoidance Assist (BCA), Safe Exit Assist (SEA), Intelligent Speed Limit Assist (ISLA), Driver Attention Warning (DAW), rear side monitor, High Beam Assist (HBA), Smart Cruise Control (SCC), Navigation-Based Smart Cruise Control (NSCC), Lane Following Assist (LFA), Highway Driving Assist 2(HDA 2), Rear View Monitor (RVM), Surround View Monitor (SVM), Rear Cross-Traffic Collision-Avoidance Assist (RCCA), Parking Distance Warnings for the front, side and rear (PDW), Rear Parking Collision-Avoidance Assist, and Remote Smart Parking Assist (RSPA). The Multi-Collision Brake (MCB) automatically activates the brake if the driver temporarily loses control of the vehicle after a first collision. The Pre-Active Front Seat Belt protects passengers by fastening the seat belt in advance when encountering a dangerous situation. In addition to these active safety features, the GV60 uses a multi-frame structure at the front that distributes energy from collisions. On the side, it also applied hot-stamping reinforcement materials to the center pillar and applied aluminum parts to the side to ensure passenger and battery stability. A total of eight airbags, including the center side airbags in front seats, have been provided as a standard option to ensure the safety of passengers in the event of an accident.
