Joining the likes of the smaller Genesis GV60 in the brand’s high-riding zero-emission family, as well as the 2022 Electrified G80 that debuted more than half a year ago, it looks like your typical GV70, save for a few updates inside and out.

For instance, the 2022 Genesis Electrified GV70 sports a revised Crest Grille up front, with an inverted G-Matrix pattern, which incorporates the charging port. Another clear indicator that this is a zero-emission model is the lack of tailpipes, which makes the whole back end look cleaner. In the cabin, users will find eco-friendly materials, lowered center tunnel, and a dedicated Boost button.

So, what does the latter do? It increases the maximum output and torque of the dual-motor powertrain, which has 214 hp (218 ps / 160 kW) and 258 lb-ft (350 Nm) on each axle, to a maximum of 483 hp (490 ps/360 kW) and 516 lb-ft (700 Nm). This enables a 0 to 62 mph (0-100 kph) acceleration in 4.5 seconds, according to the carmaker.

The capacity of the battery hasn’t been disclosed at the time of writing, yet the vehicle utilizes the 800V architecture for ultra-fast charging. Future owners will be able to access the 400V and 800V charging infrastructure without the need of an extra converter. At a 350 kW connection, the battery can be juiced up from 10 to 80% in 18 minutes. Once fully charged, it gives the new Genesis EV an estimated maximum range of over 310 miles (500 km) and up to 250 miles (400 km) on the Korean cycle.

Due to the Vehicle to Load (V2L) technology, the Electrified GV70 can power homes and charge other EVs by using the on-board system, just like the Hyundai Ioniq 5 and Kia EV6.
