Genesis Teases Its First Electric Vehicle – the GV60
Genesis recently revealed a few exterior and interior images of the GV60, the brand’s first electric vehicle based on dedicated EV platform.
The GV60 is based on its dedicated EV platform known as E-GMP (Electric-Global Modular Platform), marking the brand’s move towards electrification.
While the “G” in GV60 represents Genesis, the “V” represents the vehicle’s versatility.
The number ‘60’ on the other hand, is the lowest in the Genesis lineup and comes as the brand evolves its model-naming scheme to fit their unique design identity of ‘Athletic Elegance.’
On the exterior, we have the ‘Two-Line’ Quad Lamps, and a wide Crest Grille placed below the lights to increase the cooling efficiency of the high-voltage batteries in the underbody.
The GV60 will also see a new wing emblem applied to the grille, with thickness of the emblem reduced by nearly 80 percent from previous models.
In addition, Genesis has opted for a ‘Clamshell Hood’ for the first time, a single panel which combines the hood and fenders, creating a sleek impression for the EV model by removing lines between the parts.
The chrome line flowing from the windshield to the top of the Daylight Opening (DLO) window extends to a C pillar-garnish design that embodies the image of ‘electric’, adding a distinctive characteristic to the EV model.
Digital side mirrors are connected to the camera and monitor system. Meanwhile, an electric door handle enhances a strikingly futuristic image by automatically popping up when you approach the car.
At the rear, the GV60 features Two Line rear combination lamps, and a fixed rear wing spoiler to accent a coupe-shaped roof.
The most noticeable feature in GV60’s interior design is the Crystal Sphere, a sphere-shaped Shift By Wire (SBW) that intuitively informs drivers when the vehicle is ready to drive.
When the vehicle is turned off, the Crystal Sphere becomes the vehicle’s mood lights, adding to the aesthetic of the driving experience.
When you’re ready to drive, the sphere rotates and the SBW appears, creating an indoor atmosphere of futuristic mobility.
The Crystal Sphere
The Crystal Sphere is not just a key element of the interior design, but also provides emotional connection with driver while indicating driving status.
The floating console, where the Crystal Sphere is located, looks as if it is hovering in the air, working with other unique features such as the slim cockpit and flat floor to provide passengers with a maximum level of openness.
The crash pad inside the GV60 is designed in a wide and slim shape to augment the pleasant interior, emphasizing a high-tech atmosphere with a wide-screen integrated indicator (cclC, connected car Integrated Cockpit) that connects with the cluster and AVNT (audio, video, navigation, telecommunication).
The GV60 has also epitomized the uniformity of interior design by applying circular details to Crystal Sphere, the horn cover, door handles, and side mirror controllers.
That being said, the technical details of the Genesis GV60 are yet to be revealed, so watch this space for more updates as we draw closer to the official reveal.
