The Geneis GV60 is a high-performance electric vehicle with a sleek and athletic coupé crossover utility vehicle (CUV) design that is expands Genesis’ ‘Athletic Elegance’ design identity into the sustainable luxury space.
The GV60 is Genesis’ first vehicle to be built on the dedicated EV platform known as Electric-Global Modular Platform (E-GMP), marking the brand’s move towards electrification. It is available in three models: a standard rear-wheel-drive model, a standard four-wheel-drive model, and a performance model with four-wheel-drive. Each model features a 77.4kWh battery, and the standard RWD model features a maximum driving range of 451km per charge.
The standard RWD model is equipped with a motor that features a maximum output of 168kW and a maximum torque of 350Nm. The standard AWD model is equipped with a 160kW motor for its rear wheels and a 74kW motor for its front wheels, providing a total output of 234kW, a maximum torque of 605Nm, and a maximum driving range of 400km per charge.

The performance model features two 160kW motors for the front and rear wheels, delivering a total output of 320kW, maximum torque of 605Nm, and a maximum driving range of 368km per charge. It is an ideal option for customers seeking a fun driving experience.
The GV60 comes with a Boost Mode to give it a more dynamic and luxurious element. The mode immediately increases the performance of the vehicle’s maximum output, making the driving experience more dynamic.
The Boost Mode button on the steering wheel activates additional performance for 10 seconds. This enables the vehicle to go from 0 to 100 km/h in just 4.0 seconds
For drivers who are looking for a more dynamic experience, the GV60 also features a Drift Mode. It provides athletic driving by optimizing distribution of driving power and braking system. On top of its dynamic performance, the GV60 also delivers refined and luxurious driving experiences.
The GV60 is the first model to feature electric-Active Sound Design (e-ASD). The system provides various virtual driving sounds through the speakers based on the driving mode, the vehicle’s speed, and accelerator pedal data.
Customers can choose from three sounds: a ‘Futuristic’ sound that symbolizes the direction of future mobility: a soft and sporty ‘G-Engine’ sound that’s based on engine noises: and an ‘E-Motor’ sound, which reimagines the vehicle’s motor sounds. Drivers can explore detailed volume controls and pedal responses in the settings to customize their driving experience to suit their preferences. It also features Road Active Noise Control (ANC-R) technology to minimize noise and uses various sound-absorbing materials to achieve silence while driving.
In addition, the electronic-Limited Slip Differential (e-LSD) enables an optimal amount of torque to be distributed to the wheels when turning around at high speeds, improving performance when cornering and starting off. This offers drivers more stable control on slippery roads and in snowy or rainy weather.
The GV60 also features the Preview Electronic Control Suspension (Preview ECS), which uses information gathered from the front camera and navigation system to recognize situations that could have an impact the vehicle, such as speed bumps, in advance. It also controls the damping force of the suspension according to the surface of the road to offer passengers optimal comfort.
The GV60 also features a MacPherson multi-link suspension system for the front wheels, a five-multi-link suspension system for the rear wheels, and R-MDPS (Rack-mounted, motor-driven power steering) to enhance basic performance, including handling, comfort, and stability.
The AWD model’s Disconnector Actuator System (DAS) separates or connects the motor and the drive shaft according to driving conditions. This allows drivers to freely switch between RWD and AWD, minimizing power loss and ensuring efficient driving.
