Duh, proper? On the a single hand, the Genesis Electrified GV70 is exactly what it suggests it is: an electrified model of the brand’s compact luxurious SUV. Problems is, the phrase “electrified” is exceptionally broad. Volvo created waves when it declared that its entire lineup would be “electrified,” which prompted a multitude of lazy on line stores to report that Volvo would only be advertising electric powered cars now. Experienced they read on a small further into the push release, they would have learned that Volvo was properly just updating the electrical systems of its foundation interior combustion engines to make them mild hybrids. Certainly not electric, but technically “electrified.”
Alright, so that is not what is going on below. Not only is the GV70 electrified, but it is 100% electrified and there’s no gasoline motor. It will have a battery and a motor powering the rear and/or all 4 wheels. Unfortunately, which is the extent of the technological facts readily available at this time — we should really know additional in December when the Electrified GV70 commences rolling off the production line in South Korea. In the meantime, we did get a opportunity to see the Electrified GV70 in individual prior to its North American debut at the Los Angeles Vehicle Show in a number of weeks.
In the video over, I go over all the visual improvements. Honestly, it really is genuinely “blink and you would pass up it” things. Like the Electrified G80, Genesis is undoubtedly heading the stealthy route listed here. The grille is totally enclosed and residences the most effectively hid demand door in the industry. The decreased air dam is also unique from equally the 2.5T and 3.5T designs (one thing I failed to point out in the movie). The wheels are unique to the Electrified GV70 and since there is no exhaust, the lower rear bumper is different. The inside receives a Enhance button extra to the steering wheel (like in the GV60, it adds a 10-second increase of excess electrical power), even though the wheel is in any other case the similar as what you would get in other GV70s. The instrument style is the exact same but the details shared is unique, although a exclusive Glacier White inside coloration with copper particulars is distinctive to the Electrified GV70.
Yet again, we are going to know far more in a month or so. Till then, look at the video clip over and examine our review of the standard Genesis GV70 listed here on Autoblog.
