Genesis is turning heads as rumors of a new, larger, all-electric SUV float around the internet. This SUV, presumed to be called the GV90 is set to be the brand’s second all-electric vehicle, with the first being the GV60. The GV90 may become a flagship vehicle for the brand moving forward and a potential reveal for the car’s concept is being greatly anticipated.
While not much is known about what form the GV90 will take, we do know that it is planned to be a full-sized, three-row SUV that is bigger than the GV80. It goes without saying that being an all-new electric vehicle by a luxury brand, one could expect the most up-to-date technology and features. The brand’s first all-electric car, the GV60, is based on the E-GMP electric platform and it is very likely the GV90 would be as well.
We may get a hint about what the GV90 will look like from this knowledge, as both the Kia EV9 and Hyundai Ioniq 7 use the same platform. Both those SUVs are large with stand-out, sleek appearances and it’s possible the GV90 would follow that path as well. To know anything for certain, however, we will have to wait and see.
Using the E-GMP platform that is shared with Hyundai and Kia will allow Genesis to save on research and development costs and could be beneficial considering there are already highly anticipated cars with the same base. According to The Korean Car Blog, the GV90 may end up with an estimated range of up to 300 miles on just one charge. This means that while charging at 350 kW, the battery capacity can increase from 10% to 80% in only 20 minutes.
Genesis’s plans for electrification are only just beginning and include having eight electric vehicles for sale by 2030. According to a report by Motor1, Genesis has already trademarked seven names, one of which being the GV90e. We will have to wait to find out if anything comes of this.
