In addition to the special gear lever, the GV60 shares the E-GMP electric vehicle platform with the Hyundai Ioniq 5 and Kia EV6 models, but in the more advanced segment. Currently Genesis has not revealed detailed specifications of the luxury electric car, but is expected to have the same battery pack and electric motor as the two “brothers”.

The appearance of the electric car is crossover-style with the same proportions as the Ioniq and EV6. But the long and rounded bonnet, the fastback-style tail with a spoiler, and the low ground clearance make the GV60 look more like a tall hatchback than a crossover.
