Going Electric by 2030
As the world moves more toward electrification and being more eco-friendly, automakers are following suit to meet the needs of consumers. Genesis has plans to build its final gas-powered engine by 2025 and go all-electric by no later than 2030.
According to KBB.com’s Sean Tucker, “The roadmap will see eight new Genesis electric vehicles (EVs) — four SUVs and four cars – make up the Genesis lineup. We’ve seen three of them before.” What Tucker is referring to are the GV60, GV70, and the upcoming 2022 G80 EV.
The G80 EV is based on the existing popular luxury sedan, the G80, with an electric powertrain. Genesis estimates that this new EV will reach a range of approximately 426 km, though official certification has not been completed yet. In addition to being efficient, this luxury EV is also slated to be eco-friendly inside, thanks to vegan leather and reclaimed wood offerings.
Not much else has been shared regarding the Genesis EV lineup except for a shadowy image with signature dual-line headlights gleaming through the darkness. The next major auto show, where automakers typically debut new models, is the New York International Auto Show in April. Our team at Genesis Downtown in Toronto is hoping that we get more details sooner than that. Stay tuned for updates on the electrifying future of Genesis.
