The electric version of the Genesis GV70, called the Electrified GV70, will start production soon.
It will be built at Hyundai's plant in Montgomery, Alabama, starting in December.
Pricing isn't available yet, but we know the Electrified GV70 will be sold only in eight states at first.
After announcing an electric version of the GV70 crossover in late 2021, Genesis has now detailed plans for the U.S. launch of this new EV. Set to be built in Montgomery, Alabama, the North American version of the 2023 Genesis Electrified GV70 will start production in December. The U.S.-spec car, pictured here, was first shown at the L.A. auto show recently.
Like its sibling, the Electrified G80 sedan, the Electrified GV70 looks nearly identical to its gasoline-powered equivalent but features an entirely different powertrain underneath. Front and rear electric motors combine to produce 429 horsepower in the Performance configuration, or up to 483 hp in a special boost mode that operates for 10 seconds at a time. A less powerful base powertrain may be offered as well. Genesis has yet to release battery capacity or range figures but does say it will be capable of DC fast-charging at up to 350 kilowatts.
Pricing isn't yet available, but Genesis does say that it will be sold in eight states at first: Arizona, California, Connecticut, New Jersey, Nevada, New York, Utah, and Washington. More states may be added later, as the Electrified G80 sedan is now sold in 12 states after Genesis added Maryland, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, and Virginia to the list.
