2023 Genesis GV60 price and specs: Korea's first luxury electric car to wear six-figure pricetag, and takes on BMW's iX3, Mercedes' EQC and Audi's e-tron

The Genesis GV60 will land in Australian showrooms in the third quarter of 2022.

Genesis’ first standalone all-electric model, the GV60, will be available in two grades priced from $103,700 before on-road costs when it launches in the third quarter of the year.

That entry-level price will be for the AWD base grade, which scores a 234kW/605Nm dual-electric motor set-up.

However, buyers can also opt for the GV60 Performance AWD, which raises pricing to $110,700 and ups the ante to 350kW/700Nm.

Both GV60s feature all-wheel drive, and are built on the same E-GMP platform as the just-revealed Hyundai Ioniq 6, as well as the Ioniq 5 (from $71,900) and Kia’s EV6 ($67,900) - though the latter two are offered in RWD guise.

Overseas markets also have access to a base rear-drive GV60, with a single motor that outputs 168kW/350Nm, but that particular version doesn’t appear destined for Australia.

All GV60s are fitted with a 77.4kWh battery, which is will propel the AWD and Performance AWD 400km and 368km respectively before needing a recharge.

With an 800V architecture in place, the GV60 can recoup 80 per cent of its battery in less than 20 minutes when using a 350kW DC fast-charger, while V2L (Vehicle to Load) bi-directional charging will allow the GV60 to power devices when away from the grid.

For the money, buyers are treated to a fingerprint reader, a ‘Crystal Sphere’ shift-by-wire gear selector, 12.3-inch widescreen multimedia system, satellite navigation, all-digital instrumentation, 20-inch wheels, 17-speaker sound system, glass roof, wireless smartphone charger and full-LED headlights.

Safety systems extend to autonomous emergency braking, adaptive cruise control, lane-keep assist, driver attention warning, blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, remote parking and a surround-view monitor.

Stepping up to the Performance AWD variant adds 21-inch wheels, alloy pedals, metallic accents and a rear limited-slip differential.

Buyers will have to be quick though, as Genesis has already revealed that the majority of 1800 expressions of interest for its all-electric models (including GV70 and G80 Electrified) are for the GV60, and a spokesperson said that “we expect demand to outstrip supply”.
