Genesis formally unveiled its first all-electric manufacturing car in April this yr. The Electrified G80 will not be constructed from scratch on a dedicated EV platform but it surely’s nonetheless an overly respectable strive with trendy seems to be, correct specs, and great options. The fellow from the Asian Petrolhead channel on YouTube is right here to turn us extra in regards to the zero-emission sedan.
Sadly, this isn’t an intensive evaluation of the car because the video was once shot all over an artwork flare in South Korea the place Genesis had the Electrified G80 displayed for the guests to take a look at. The small exposition was once beautiful crowded and the host needed to maintain some awkward moments with different vloggers and guests.
However, that is our first real-life take a look at the electrical sedan and it mainly confirms our preliminary impressions of a cast electrical car. Once more, the relationship between the combustion-powered G80 fashions and the Electrified G80 is obviously visual even at a look, however plenty of vital adjustments flip this no-tailpipe luxurious automobile into one of the crucial extra fascinating massive sedans in the marketplace.
Clearly, the all-electric powertrain is the spotlight right here. It’s an all-wheel-drive EV powertrain with a height output of 365 horsepower (272 kilowatts) and an immediate max torque of 516 pound-feet (700 Newton-meters). When in Game mode, the dual-motor machine allows a dash from a standstill to 60 mph (0-96 kilometers in line with hour) in simply 4.9 seconds. The battery is situated within the car’s flooring and this has a somewhat detrimental impact at the inner room, despite the fact that it for sure compensates by means of reducing the G80’s heart of gravity.
One specific characteristic Genesis appears to be very pleased with is the not obligatory sun roof. You’ll be able to both move for a normal sunroof or pay additional for the sun roof, despite the fact that we don’t know the way a lot power will also be generated with the latter. As a extra normal rationalization, Hyundai guarantees a few hundred miles of range might be added once a year.
