Genesis GV70e electric crossover prototype spotted

The journalists published photos showing a camouflaged prototype of the Genesis GV70e electric crossover. The debut of the South Korean novelty will take place before the end of this year.

According to the documents that Genesis has filed with various patent offices, the premium automaker is actively working on a number of electric vehicles. The brand has even officially confirmed that the new Genesis zero-emission crossover will arrive later this year.

What you see in the images published in this article is most likely an early prototype of the Genesis GV70e electric crossover.

The test car is very similar to the one posted earlier this month, although it doesn’t even have a license plate. These new images were taken on a frozen lake in Sweden. The prototype seen has no license plates because this lake is not a public road.

While the fabric camouflage closes our view of the front end, it’s safe to say that the GV70e will have a closed version of the current Genesis grille. Apparently it is this version of the closed lattice that all future electric vehicles of the company will receive. You can also notice that the electric crossover will borrow styling cues from the regular GV70 crossover, which is powered by an internal combustion engine, including its split taillights.

Unfortunately, little is known about what hides under the hood of the electric crossover. We know for sure that the car will be based on Hyundai Electric-Global’s new modular platform, which will form the basis for many future electric vehicles from Hyundai, Kia and Genesis. In the case of the GV70e, we expect it to get a high performance bias, probably sacrificing to some extent the number of kilometers it can travel on a single charge.

Not so long ago, AutoTimesNews wrote that the prototype of the Genesis GV60 crossover is undergoing a series of tests. Premium brand Genesis is testing its new GV60 crossover alongside a Kia CV prototype as well as the Hyundai Ioniq 5 electric crossover.
