Hyundai’s premium division recently revealed the GV60, an electric vehicle that uses the same platform as the Hyundai Ioniq 5 and the Kia EV6. The GV60 is shorter, by five and seven inches, respectively. And unlike the Hyundai and the Kia, the GV60’s two available trims — Advance and Performance — are all-wheel-drive. The system produces 429 horsepower and 446 pound-feet of torque, but in Boost mode, which is part of the Performance trim, those numbers increase to 483/516. That lasts for 10 seconds only, which is ideal for quick off-the line starts or when overtaking slower vehicles. All GV60s come well-equipped and get dual 12.3-inch touch-screens, up-level Bang and Olufsen-brand audio systems and facial and fingerprint recognition to unlock and start the cars. Genesis will also introduce a larger GV80 EV this year.
