Genesis GV60

You may not have heard of Genesis until quite recently, but that’s ok, it’s new and here you are going to find out more. It’s the luxury arm of Hyundai, and despite only recently arriving in Europe this brand has been growing since 2015.

It has already announced the first models coming to the UK, and that list just got longer after officially revealing exterior and interior images of the GV60, the brand’s first electric vehicle based on a dedicated EV platform.

Genesis GV60

The front of the GV60 features a design optimised for the electric vehicle. The Two-Line Quad Lamps add character to a clean and refined face. A wider and more athletic Crest Grille has been placed below the Quad Lamps to emphasise the dynamic performance of the GV60 and also to increase the cooling efficiency of the high-voltage batteries in the underbody.

In addition, Genesis has opted for a ‘Clamshell Hood’ to create a sleek look for the EV model by removing lines between the parts.

When viewed from the side, the GV60 reveals the dynamic profile of a high-performance coupe, with a simple silhouette running from the front bonnet to the rear spoiler completes a more progressive character. There’s even a chrome line flowing from the windscreen and across the tops of the doors that features a little design flourish that hints at the electricity that ultimately makes the car work. Digital side mirrors add to the cutting-edge appearance and are connected to the camera and monitor system, and the door handles automatically pop up when you approach the car.

At the rear, the twin light arrangement is repeated for a clean and fresh look. The rear also features a fixed rear wing spoiler to accent the coupe-shaped roof, adding to the image of dynamic high-performance.

The interior design of the GV60 takes on Genesis’ design ethos of the ‘Beauty of White Space’. We think that’s something to do with a sense of light and space and not filling interiors with buttons and dials. At first glance it definitely looks like it’s worked. It’s a clean and modern interior with some nice touches of luxury. The most noticeable feature in the GV60’s interior design is the Crystal Sphere gear selector. And you can enjoy it without the risk of getting locked in on your way through the maze.

The floating console, where the Crystal Sphere is located, looks as if it is hovering in the air to provide passengers with a maximum feeling of space. When the vehicle is turned off, the Crystal Sphere becomes the car’s mood lights. When you’re ready to drive, the sphere rotates and away you go. To go with the high-tech atmosphere there’s also a wide-screen Integrated Cockpit that connects with the instrument cluster and infotainment unit.

Unfortunately, we can’t tell you much more than that because a lot of the details are still in the hands of Hyundai.
