Luxury carmaker Genesis is taking another step toward electrification with a third EV model, the 2023 Electrified GV70, which is coming to join the GV60 EV SUV and the Electrified G80 sedan. Based on the gasoline-powered GV70 SUV, the Electrified Version looks just as fabulous but swaps in two electric motors making a combined 483 horsepower. All-wheel drive is standard, and Genesis says the this model will come with a fast-charging system that will allow the battery to be juiced from 10 percent to 80 percent in under 20 minutes.
The Electrified GV70 will be a new nameplate for the Genesis lineup, and we expect it to launch as a 2023 model with sales starting sometime in late 2022.

All-wheel drive will be standard on the Electrified GV70, and it will use two motors, one on each axle, to achieve that. Maximum horsepower is a claimed 483 horsepower. Genesis says the Electrified GV70 will be capable of hitting 0-60 mph in just 4.5 seconds, seemingly quicker than the gassed-up twin.
Genesis hasn’t yet released information about the Model’s battery pack or driving range—although expecting unit is about 300 miles per charge—but it has announced that the SUV will get a very fast onboard charger. The system is capable of charging at 350 kW, and Genesis says that’s quick enough to get the battery from 10 to 80 percent charged in less than 20 minutes at a public charging station.
Although Genesis is keeping a lot behind its back, it did revealed some of the things such as the variants and the tags on them, probably preparing the public for what to expect. They go like Base for $65,000 (est), Advanced for $75,000 (est), and lastly Prestige for $85,000 (est).
