Hyundai’s luxury brand Genesis to launch all-electric GV90 SUV in 2023.
GV90 will be positioned as the upper model of the GV80 and will play the role of a flagship SUV.
It will be Genesis’s second dedicated electric vehicle following the GV60.
A report from ETNews says that Hyundai’s luxury brand Genesis will launch a new electric large SUV called GV90 in 2023. The Genesis GV90 will likely be marketed as a more expensive and premium alternative to the Ioniq 7 and EV9.
The planned all-electric GV90 SUV will likely compete against future Mercedes-Benz EQS SUV or Range Rover electric version, according to ETNews information.
Back in September, Genesis released a single teaser image previewing eight all-new electric vehicles that it is developing, one of which could be the upcoming electric SUV.
The badge means that the GV90 will be positioned as the upper model of the GV80 and will play the role of a flagship SUV. It will be Genesis’s second dedicated electric vehicle following the GV60, which is based on the HMG’s electric vehicle platform E-GMP (Electric Global Modular Platform).
The GV90 will maximize R&D efficiency, including development period and cost, by sharing major parts with electric SUVs already under development by Hyundai and Kia. Hyundai Motor Company and Kia Corp. recently unveiled new electric large SUV SEVEN and EV9 concept models, respectively, at the LA Auto Show.
Details of the GV90 have not been released, but specs can be expected through the Seven and EV9 concept models. The actual EV9 concept model has a total length of 4930 mm, an overall width of 2055 mm, a total height of 1790 mm, and an axle distance of 3100 mm.
The range is expected to be the same as its “cheaper” brothers which could be driven up to 300 miles (482 km) on a single charge while charging at 350 kW, the charging time from 10% to 80% of the battery capacity could be done in 20 minutes. The interior space is in the form of an SUV with three rows of seats.
