Electrified Genesis GV70

It wasn’t that long ago that the Genesis GV70 made its debut and provided drivers with exceptional style, performance, and luxury. Now, you can have all that and outstanding efficiency thanks to the all-new electrified Genesis GV70.

The electric GV70 is based on the regular GV70, keeping the features and amenities that everyone has come to know and love over the past few years. This includes its spacious, driver-focused interior that emphasizes the beauty of white space and is filled with cutting-edge technology.

New Technology

With the electric GV70, you’ll also get new technologies that are designed especially for an electric SUV. As such, the multi-rapid charging system offers both 400V and 800V options. With the inclusion of 350kW rapid charging, the GV70 can go from 10-80% battery in less than 20 minutes.

Along with offering smart and quick charging, the electrified GV70 is expected to provide remarkable efficiency while maintaining the thrill that comes with driving a Genesis vehicle. The SUV will be equipped with standard all-wheel drive and is estimated to reach 96 kph in 4.5 seconds with the model’s Boost Mode. 

These are just some of the highlights of the new electrified Genesis GV70. We’re excited to see updates like this from the brand, and if you’d like to learn more, contact our team at Genesis Downtown in Toronto, Ontario.

Genesis Unveils Redesigned G90 Flagship Sedan

Genesis G90 | Toronto, ON

The flagship Genesis G90 has been redesigned. This luxury sedan arrives with updates inside and out, along with the option of choosing between a sedan and a long-wheelbase version.

On the outside, the G90 sports a new Crest Grille flanked by Two-Line headlamps to resemble the Genesis emblem. Also revised is that Guilloché patterned emblem, which is almost 80% thinner to elevate the G90’s design even more. The back helps to elongate the sedan thanks to the Two-Line rear combination lamps that mimic the front headlamps.

The beauty of the sedan’s exterior extends to its cabin, which has been carefully crafted with the Genesis Beauty of White Space interior design ethos in mind. The gorgeous, high-quality materials that fill the interior harmoniously blend with the updated advanced technologies. For example, the EasyClose system will close the door so you can comfortably envelop yourself in the supple leather seats without having to reach for the handle.

It’s not all about looks, though. The new Genesis G90 has been equipped with a 3.5-litre turbo engine that offers a thrilling performance of 380 horsepower. New suspension technology has also been added to the G90 to allow for improved handling and a smoother ride. And to ensure the quietest ride yet, Genesis has outfitted the sedan with its most advanced noise canceling ANC-R system.

These are just a few of the many highlights you’ll encounter in the all-new Genesis G90. To learn more, contact our team at Genesis Downtown in Toronto, Ontario.

Genesis Going All-Electric by 2030

2022 Genesis G80, Toronto, ON

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.

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.

Genesis Reveals New GV60 All-Electric Crossover

2022 Genesis GV60 | Toronto, ON

In its first move towards electrification, Genesis has unveiled some details about the all-new, all-electric GV60 crossover. The GV60 EV is expected to blend the luxury of Genesis — inside and out — with dynamic performance and superior efficiency.

The exterior of the new GV60 features a sleek silhouette with a front end that’s accented by the athletic Crest Grille and Quad Lamps. For the first time on a Genesis vehicle, the automaker has given the GV60 a “clamshell hood,” a single panel that combines the hood and fenders for a smooth overall appearance.

Inside, the Genesis GV60 embodies the “Beauty of White Space” design ethos to create a spacious and elegant cabin. One of the more unique features in the GV60 is the Crystal Sphere in the floating console. When the GV60 is turned off, the sphere acts as ambient light in the cockpit. But when the vehicle is ready to be driven, it turns into a Shift By Wire (SBW) controller.

A large touch screen expands from behind the steering wheel to the center dash, providing an exceptionally modern look. Other standout features inside the GV60 include “Boost” and “Drive Mode” buttons on the steering wheel as well as contrast stitching on the seats, dash, and center console.

The all-new Genesis GV60 EV is expected to arrive in early 2022 with additional information to be released in the coming months. Contact our team at Genesis Downtown in Toronto, Ontario, for more details.

The G80 has been a part of the Genesis brand since the beginning and is a beloved executive sedan with a stylish design and premium amenities within. Now, Genesis is taking this iconic vehicle even further and debuting a performance-enhanced version called the Genesis G80 Sport.

Full performance specs have not yet been released, but we do know that the G80 Sport will offer Rear Wheel Steering for maximized driving stability.

We have seen exclusive photos of the G80 Sport that showcased the new Cavendish Red exterior paint color, which draws inspiration from the name and colors of the cliffs near the north coast of Prince Edward Island. The stunning vehicle is also equipped with 20-inch G-Matrix dark alloy wheels, black headlamp bezels, and a dark glossy chrome radiator grille.

Inside, the dashboard comes in three different design options: real carbon, Sport-exclusive real aluminum, and a diamond-patterned hybrid weaving pattern. G80 Sport-exclusive seat quilting designs will also be available in a V or diamond pattern.

The all-new Genesis G80 Sport is expected to arrive very soon. For more details on when you can see it for yourself, contact our team at Genesis Downtown in Toronto, Ontario.
