Genesis Middle East & Africa has unveiled its lineup of EV models for the very first time in the region.

The Electrified G80 is built on the heritage of its predecessor G80. It sports an aerodynamic crest grille that fits with the signature G-Matrix pattern and a hidden charging door at the front. The seats are fitted with Nappa leather and tinted with natural dyes, with additional Forged Wood fittings. The 400V/800V multi-rapid charging system can be used with various charging infrastructures and it also has a V2L feature, enabling customers to use electric power of 3.6kW to charge external devices.

Designed to offer an intuitive driving experience, the Electrified GV70 is built on the heritage of the GV70, inheriting its predecessor’s spacious interior. The inside is inspired by the Korean principle of ‘Beauty of White Space’, characterised by minimalism and strong design elements. On the exterior, the front fascia displays careful consideration for aerodynamic efficiency and function. As on the Electrified G80, Genesis’ signature Crest Grille has evolved into an aerodynamic crest, featuring an inverted G-Matrix Pattern, and incorporates a hidden EV charging port. This high-performance model goes from 0-100km/h in just 4.2 seconds in Boost Mode. Additionally, the Electrified GV70 is the first Genesis model to feature the SUV-specific e-Terrain Mode, which ensures a stable driving experience in various environments.

With a sleek and athletic coupé crossover utility vehicle (CUV) design, the GV60 is built on the Electric-Global Modular Platform (E-GMP), a dedicated battery electric vehicle platform for Hyundai Motor Group automobiles. The Clamshell Hood, a single panel which combines the bonnet and fenders, creates a sleek impression. It also comes with a new wing emblem on the bonnet decorated with the Guilloché pattern often seen in luxury watches. The Crystal Sphere on the centre console helps with gear selection and adds to the aesthetic.

Face Connect recognises the driver’s face to lock or unlock doors without a key. The Fingerprint Authentication System allows drivers to start and drive without a key. Drift Mode provides athletic driving and Boost Mode a more dynamic and luxurious element. Virtual Gear Shift adjusts the torque and simultaneously generates a virtual engine sound, as if you’re driving an ICE (internal combustion engine) model. Digital side mirrors and electric door handles further accentuate the GV60’s cutting-edge look The handles automatically pop up when the driver approaches the car with their smart key. Other features include road active noise control, preview electronic control suspension, disconnector actuator system and more. As for safety features, a total of eight airbags have been provided as standard. ✤
