The world of electric vehicles has come a long way, and the 2023 Genesis GV60 stands as a shining example of how far we've come. During my week with this luxurious EV, I couldn't help but be impressed by its unique qualities and attention to detail. It isn't all that often that a show car comes into production and outside of the screens for side view mirrors (as seen in the press photos below) the GV60 is what was shown to journalists as a concept, even down to the "crystal ball" shifter.

Unparalleled Luxury and Design

The Genesis GV60 is more than just an electric vehicle; it's a work of art on wheels. Its designers have poured their hearts and souls into creating a vehicle that not only turns heads but also offers a comfortable and visually engaging interior. The mix of materials, textures, and freestyle design inside the cabin is simply stunning. From the ambient lighting that glows from the doors to the glovebox that pulls out like a drawer, every detail has been meticulously thought out. It's spacious, versatile, and offers a truly unique and inviting environment.

Multiple Ways to Interact

The GV60 takes user interaction to the next level with multiple ways to control various functions in the car. Whether you prefer traditional buttons, a central touch-sensitive knob, the touchscreen, or the steering wheel, the GV60 has you covered. This flexibility ensures that drivers of all preferences can comfortably navigate the vehicle's features. Customizable shortcuts and the convenience of facial recognition and fingerprint scanning for unlocking and starting the car add to the high-tech experience.

Impressive Performance

With a 77.4-kWh lithium-ion battery and dual permanent magnet electric motors, the Genesis GV60 delivers impressive performance. It boasts 429 horsepower (482 with boost mode) and 479 lb-ft of torque (516 lb-ft with boost mode). The throttle response is beautifully calibrated, allowing for precise control of power delivery. The brakes seamlessly blend regenerative braking with traditional braking, offering a smooth and controlled driving experience. The GV60 excels in comfort too, with a well-damped suspension that delivers an excellent ride quality, making it a great companion for city streets and highways.

Advanced Driver Assistance Systems

The Genesis GV60 comes equipped with advanced driver assistance systems that enhance safety and convenience. Adaptive cruise control and lane-keeping assist work effectively, providing a relaxing and stress-free driving experience. The vehicle's technology package also includes a head-up display, a high-quality Bang & Olufsen stereo, 360-degree parking cameras, and a 12.3-inch center display. It's a tech enthusiast's dream come true.


In an era where sustainability is a top priority, the Genesis GV60 takes steps to minimize its environmental impact. While its real-world efficiency may vary, it offers zero emissions on the road. Sustainable materials are used throughout the vehicle, with plant-based leather and recycled plastics incorporated into the interior. This commitment to sustainability aligns with the growing demand for eco-conscious transportation options.

One Caveat: Rural Charging Considerations

As much as we love the Genesis GV60, it's essential to consider one limitation, particularly for those living outside major cities. While the GV60 excels in many aspects, its range of approximately 235 miles may pose challenges for long road trips or in rural areas with limited charging infrastructure. Charging stations are becoming more prevalent, and the GV60 supports fast charging, but it's worth noting that relying solely on public charging may require more frequent stops than some other EVs.

In conclusion, the 2023 Genesis GV60 is a remarkable luxury EV that excels in design, technology, and performance. It offers a truly unique and captivating driving experience. However, for those outside major cities, it may function best as a second vehicle due to the potential challenges associated with charging in more rural areas. Nevertheless, if you're looking for an electric vehicle that makes a statement and delivers a truly special experience, the Genesis GV60 is an excellent choice.
