Genesis GV70 electric car bypassed relatives in recoil and dynamics – DRIVE

The novelty almost entirely copies the exterior of relatives with an internal combustion engine. The main distinguishing feature is the closed honeycomb of the radiator grille, like the G80 sedan. The charging port is located here. The bumper got rid of some textured details. The main message is anti-aliasing and minimalism.

In October last year, using the Genesis GV70 as an example, the Koreans showed how, in their opinion, a premium coupe-like crossover should look like. The full debut of the car with all the technical details took place a month and a half later – in December. After waiting for almost a year, a “green” modification was released on the scene of the auto show in Guangzhou, which became the most dynamic in the family. Some details on the technical part and prices will be announced closer to the start of sales, which are scheduled for next year. The priority market is China. But the SUV is also expected to have an international career.

The feed got rid of the outlet pipes. The car uses an 800-volt electrical system, and is also equipped with a Vehicle to Load complex. It turns the machine into a 3.6 kW power bank, which can be used to charge any electrical appliance.

The Koreans have at their disposal an electric motor per axle. The DAS (Disconnector Actuator System) system, depending on the speed and other indicators, will independently decide whether a rear unit is required for movement. The main task of algorithms is to save energy. For the first time, the brand has announced the e-Terrain mode “for stable driving in all conditions.” Apparently, we are talking about some kind of off-road capabilities. The movement is also available in the i-Pedal version, when acceleration and deceleration can be controlled using the accelerator. The recuperation system takes into account not only the driver’s preferences, but also the traffic data.

There are more environmentally friendly materials in the decoration than on related models. The central tunnel has shrunk a little in size, and a Boost button has appeared on the steering wheel to unlock the peak performance of electric motors. There are also petals for adjusting the recuperation modes.

In Boost mode, the total output of the units will reach 489 hp. and 700 N • m. This is enough to accelerate the crossover from standstill to 100 km / h in 4.5 seconds. For comparison, the top-end version with a 3.5 T-GDI petrol turbo six (379 hp, 530 N • m) fulfills the standard by 0.6 s slower. The battery capacity for the new item has not been disclosed. It can be assumed that the element came from the same G80. There, the capacity is 87.2 kWh. But it is known that a full charge is 400 km of track without stopping. When connected to a 350 kW terminal, a 10% energy reserve can be increased to 80% in just 18 minutes.
