Genesis launched the all new GV60, a model already anticipated by some exciting teasers. The GV60 is Genesis first dedicated electric vehicle.

The 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.

Featuring Two Lines lamps, the front design perfectly complements the vehicle’s refined and voluminous body. Iconic and instantly recognizable, the Two-Line design is a symbol of Genesis vehicles.

The Genesis signature Crest Grille moves to a lower position to accommodate cooling requirements specific to the dedicated high performance EV platform. An EV specific detail that highlights Genesis’ transition to the sustainable era.

The interior design of the GV60 takes on Genesis’ design ethos of the ‘Beauty of White Space’, while seeking to create a spacious and comfortable interior. At the same time, its floating architecture and unique details combine to create a unique look.

The Crystal Sphere is one of the most compelling design elements of the GV60. It is not only an aesthetic element of the interior design, but it is also built to create an emotional connection between the driver and the vehicle. When the vehicle is turned off, the Crystal Sphere becomes the vehicle’s mood lights, adding to the aesthetic of the driving experience. When the vehicle is ready to drive, the sphere rotates and the Shift By Wire (SBW) appears, creating an indoor atmosphere of futuristic mobility.

The floating console, where the Crystal Sphere is located, looks as if it is hovering in the air, working with other unique features such as the slim cockpit and flat floor to provide passengers with a maximum level of openness. In addition, the next-generation infotainment system – the connected car Integrated Cockpit (ccIC) – connects the cluster and navigation into a panoramic display, creating a high-tech look and outstanding usability.
