Genesis Electrified GV70 Gets Shown at Goodwood, Ticks the European Premiere Box

Among the multitude of static and dynamic premieres at the 2022 Goodwood Festival of Speed sits one special Genesis model: the Electrified GV70. This is the company’s third battery-electric car, after the GV60 and the G80, and has just celebrated its European debut at the event.

Unveiled at the brand’s stand by the Duke of Richmond, and the Genesis UK boss, Andrew Pilkington, the Electrified GV70, which will launch in the UK this summer, breathes the same air as other Genesis vehicles, as visitors can also see the GV60, G70 Shooting Brake, Electrified G80, and GV80.

We are delighted to unveil Electrified GV70 the very first time in Europe, at the world-famous Goodwood Festival of Speed,” said Genesis Europe’s Managing Director, Dominique Boesch. “Featuring our cutting edge electrical architecture, and focus on luxurious sustainability, it represents another big step in our commitment to deliver an all-electric lineup of vehicles by 2025."

Originally unveiled at the Guangzhou Auto Show in China last fall, the Electrified GV70 has an estimated range of over 310 miles (500 km). It also has a dedicated Boost mode, which lifts the output and torque of the dual-motor powertrain to 483 hp (490 ps / 360 kW) and 516 lb-ft (700 Nm), from the standard 214 hp (218 ps / 160 kW) and 258 lb-ft (350 Nm). The 0 to 62 mph (0-100 kph) sprint is a 4.5-second affair, Genesis says.

To celebrate its official arrival in Europe, Hyundai’s luxury car brand will drop four short films over the weekend, showing the Electrified GV70 powering multiple household appliances, as the car can be used as a mobile generator when needed.

On display at Goodwood, where it came straight from New York following its debut two months ago, is the Genesis X Speedium Coupe Concept. Previewing the company’s future design language, the show car's creation was led by CCO Luc Donckerwolke.
