Genesis introduces its first electric vehicle

Hyundai luxury brand Genesis presented its first all-electric vehicle at the Shanghai Auto Show, the so-called electric G80, which is an all-electric version of the current luxury G80.

Although Hyundai Motor has a history of electric cars for many years, its Genesis brand has never entered the fully electric car industry, although Tesla, Audi, Mercedes, BMW and others are rapidly moving towards the electric luxury industry. .

The G80 is a luxury car that is much appreciated in the United States. In 2017, shipping volume to the United States reached 16,000 and reached its peak. But since then, sales have dropped to just a few thousand a year.

The automaker now hopes to revive the car's plan with an all-electric version. Genesis Global Brand Manager said: “Today it represents many of the things that are most important to the Genesis brand, not only because it is the start of the brand in Shanghai. The auto show is also due to be the first time that we have introduced new products outside of Korea.

"The G80 electric vehicle not only strikes the perfect balance between sport and elegance, it also marks the beginning of our journey into the electric vehicle market, which marks the birth of the era of electricity."

Regarding the technical data, the brand did not provide the battery in detail, but it was noted that the expected range of the brand according to the NEDC standard is 427 km.

The electric G80 also has a fast charging capacity of 350 kW. Genesis claims it can increase the battery charge rate from 10% to 80% in just 22 minutes.

Genesis also wrote an article about the car's performance: The G80 electric car comes with four-wheel drive as standard, which can deliver powerful performance, allow customers to drive dynamically, and accelerate from 0 to 100 km / h in 4.9 seconds.

With the DAS system, the engine can be installed or removed according to driving conditions, so the vehicle can switch between four-wheel drive and four-wheel drive to reduce unnecessary power losses and improve efficiency.

The car has a multi-speed charging system with a capacity between 400 and 800 volts, which allows customers to use different charging infrastructure by increasing the voltage level from 400 volts to 800 volts without the need for additional adapters.

Like the upcoming Hyundai Ionic 5, Genesis has introduced bi-directional charging technology in its G80 electric vehicle.

This enables the vehicle to give customers the ability to use 3.6 kW of electrical energy to power external electrical appliances.

The Genesis Electrified G80 is equipped with an efficient road noise control system that can significantly reduce noise levels by measuring and analyzing road noise while generating sound waves from the opposite frequencies.

The adaptive suspension can be controlled via information from the front camera for the best and smoothest driving experience.

The brand has announced that it will reveal more details about the car's North American launch later this year.
