Review Of 2023 Genesis Electrified G80 Specs Pricing And Features

Review Of 2023 Genesis Electrified G80 Specs Pricing And Features

Overview

The Electrified G80 electric version of Genesis' G80 sedan will be available for the 2023 model year. The Electrified G80 is an exciting addition to electric vehicles, despite its name. The exterior and interior of the Electrified 80 are identical to the gasoline-powered model, making it attractive and beautiful.

The Electrified G80 has a dual-electric motor system that produces 365 horsepower instead of the turbocharged four-cylinder or twin-turbo V-6 engines. The car's battery pack, 87.2-kWh, can provide up to 282 miles on one charge.

The battery installation reduces headroom in the front and rear seats, as well as the trunk space by two cubic feet. The Electrified G80, though, is a tempting package. It drives almost identically to the gas engine variant, has a similarly beautiful interior, and has a comparable driving range.

What's New?

The brand's attempt to electrify vehicles is represented by the Electrified 80, which coexists alongside the new GV60 compact EV SUV, and is an entirely new model.

Only the fully loaded Prestige model of the Electrified G80 can be purchased. It is loaded with many opulent luxuries such as leather upholstery and wood trim.

EV Motor Performance and Power

The Electrified 80 has all-wheel drive, and a total of 365 horsepower thanks to a pair of electric motors on each axle. The Electrified G80 is capable of reaching 60 mph in just 4.9 seconds. This is a fraction slower than the V-6-powered G80 Sport. The acceleration is quick.

Standard equipment is included in the Electrified 80's rear-wheel steering system. The chassis feels as agile as the gasoline engine model. All that's missing is the familiar sound of a gasoline engine’s familiar purr. Driving on the highway is therefore steady, easy, and comfortable.

Range, Charging, Battery Life

An 87.2-kWh battery pack, with a range of 282 miles per recharge, is found between the floorboards in the Electrified 80.

A 350-kW DC fast charger, according to Genesis, can charge the battery between 10 and 80 percent in 22 minutes. When the charger is plugged into a Level 2, it will take seven hours to charge.

Exterior styling

Although the G80 electric version is identical to its gasoline counterpart, it has a distinct back bumper, no exhaust outlets, and its own grille that includes an integrated charging station. Also included is a unique set of 19-inch wheels.

It will take some time to see that the G80 runs on electricity and not gasoline. This luxury EV isn't all-electric. This is something that many potential buyers may appreciate.

This variant has a more substantial use of aluminum in its body panels. The lightweight material balances the large battery weight. There are nine exterior paint options, with Matira Blue being the most prominent.

Passive Safety

These safety features are:

  • Advanced Compatibility Enhancement (ACE), body composition
  • Advanced Front Airbags: For the driver and front passengers
  • Airbags in the front for the driver as well as the front passengers
  • Airbags on the passenger side of the rear-outboard passengers
  • Side curtains with airbags
  • Rollover sensor
  • Seat belts in 3-point configuration with an automatic tensioning system
  • Lower Anchors and Tethers for Children
  • Child-resistant back door locks

Interior Comfort and Cargo

To fit the battery pack into the electric sedan, a few interior adjustments were needed. Because the headroom in the rear and front seats is slightly smaller, taller passengers might notice that the headliner is closer to their heads.

You can also reduce trunk space by two feet. Because of its elegant appearance and high-quality materials, the interior is a pleasant place to be in. The interior features elegant wood trim and plush leather seating.

Connectivity and Infotainment

A large 14.5-inch touchscreen protrudes from the dashboard to control the infotainment system of the Electrified Genesis 80.

The display is controlled by buttons on the steering wheel and a circular controller in its center console. Voice commands can also be used. Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and a powerful Lexicon sound system are all standard features.

Safety and driver-assistance features

Smart Park is a smart function that the Electrified G80 offers in addition to a lot of driver-assistance techs. This feature, which is also available on some Hyundai models allows the driver to maneuver the vehicle into tight spaces without having to be at the wheel.

These are important safety features:

  • Standard for automated emergency braking
  • Lane-keeping assistance, and the standard lane departure warning
  • Standard feature: Lane-centering adaptive cruise controller

Warranty and Maintenance Coverage

  • The warranty is valid for five years or 60,000 mi.
  • The warranty on the powertrain lasts for ten years or 100,000 miles.
  • The three-year maintenance-free period is 36,000 miles or three years.

What is the price of the Genesis Electrified GH80?

The Genesis Electrified G80 is expected to be on the market in 2023. South Korea will most likely serve as the manufacturing location.

Pricing information is still not available, but customers can expect a $7500 tax credit and additional state incentives, as Genesis is new to the electrified car market. The G80 is comparable in price at $47,700 and can go up to $60,000.

The Electrified G80 offers great value, especially when compared with its key competitors such as the base models of Tesla Model S, Porsche Taycan, and Audi e-Tron GT. This assumes Genesis can maintain prices within this range.

What's beneath the Hood?

The Genesis Electrified G80's propulsion system is a dual-motor electric one motor electric system. Each of the equivalent-sized electric motors produces 136kW for 272kW or 700Nm, respectively.

The new high-tech charging platform is from Hyundai and Kia. It draws its power from an 87.2kWh battery.

The Electrified G80 has the same 400/800V charging design as the Hyundai Ioniq 5, and the Kia EV6. This allows for three-phase AC charging of up to 11kW, and 350kW DC charging.

The Electrified 80 can run V2L at 3.6kW and charge simultaneously. We expect it to travel over 500 km, although the Australian market driving range has not been revealed. Genesis claims to be able to travel between 0 and 100 km/h in just five seconds.

What is the Genesis Electrified G80 Drive?

When you get the Electrified 80 moving, it feels just like any other electric car. It's sleek and punchy and does everything an electric vehicle should.

Low speeds are easy to steer and the pedal responds well enough to stop you from breaking your neck by pressing too hard.

The Electrified G80 also features three levels of energy regeneration as well as a "single pedal driving mode" that allows for a complete stop and no need to apply the brakes.

It switches from a Level 0 regeneration mode, where it coasts, to an aggressive regeneration mode, in which everything slows significantly faster. The ride will amaze you.

For the Australian market, the Electrified G80 will come with 19-inch alloy wheels and a camera to read the road ahead so that the adaptive damping response can be customized.

It is extremely comfortable and smooth when it is in normal driving mode. It almost has an entirely different vibe when the vehicle is in Sports mode. Sport mode allows you to feel the full 700Nm torque. The vehicle pushes your back into the seat, and it feels half the size.

The vehicle's stability control system works well. You can keep your foot on the gas, while the system stabilizes the vehicle's other parts.

The stability control system works well and lets you keep your foot out of tight corners, while the vehicle's rest is sorted out. It is able to float through curves. It doesn't move as much despite its mass of 2300kg, which is about 300kg less than an internal combustion G80.

Genesis has integrated the whole system by achieving a good transition between friction brakes, regeneration brakes, and a progressive brake pedal feel.

It is also very quiet. The cabin is already very quiet due to the sound insulation that blocks wind and road noise. However, it's electric which makes it fundamentally quieter as the internal combustion engine is not present.

Last Thoughts

The Genesis all-electric SUV, Genesis' first, is an attractive machine with a remarkable performance. Although the price tag of $49,990 may seem high, the benefits are well worth it. This is the best option if you are looking for something unique and special.
