The Electrified G80, as Genesis calls the model, is equipped with motors spinning all wheels, allowing an acceleration time from 0 to 100 kph (0-60 mph) in just 4.9 seconds when in sports mode.
The car's 400/800V multi-fast charging system offers customers various charging options. This system uses the vehicle's driving motor and inverter to boost the 400V supplied from a general charger to 800V optimized for the vehicle system, enabling stable and fast charging. Thanks to this, the 800V rapid charging system can be used without an additional converter.
The Genesis EV sedan also comes with a V2L (Vehicle to Load) feature that "enables customers to use electric power of 3.6 kW, which is higher than the level of the average household, making it possible to use electric appliances outside the vehicle with ease."
Additionally, it is equipped with a Disconnector Actuator System (DAS) that can connect or disconnect the motor and the drive shaft according to the driving situation, thereby minimizing unnecessary power loss and enabling efficient driving by freely switching between 2WD and AWD driving methods.
In terms of looks, the electric G80 inherits the interior of the existing version, adding a few elements that differentiate it as a luxury EV sedan. The interior comes with eco-friendly wood decorations and recycled PET fabrics.
More information about its launch in the U.S. and Canada will be available later this year.
