Genesis JW EV electric car caught by photo spies

So far, we only know the codename of the future electric car from the premium sub-brand Hyundai.

The first spy shots of the electric Genesis, codenamed JW, have leaked online. From prying eyes, the electric car hid a dense camouflage.

And if the appearance of the novelty is still a secret, then some technical details are already known. For example, we know the Genesis JW EV will receive a state-of-the-art electric vehicle platform, which is also claimed by Hyundai and KIA models.

In its proportions, the “green” novelty from Genesis resembles the Hyundai 45 EV. The principal differences boil down to the fact that the electric Hyundai is an angular hatchback, while the Genesis EV gets a fastback aft. At the same time, the Genesis silhouette turns out to be more streamlined and sleek, despite the fact that Genesis engineers are trying to deceive us with additional block sections that hide the real shape of the new product.

The interior of the car did not get into the lens of the photo spies. It is expected to be made as technologically advanced as possible. Also, the novelty will get a rich list of modern options so that it can adequately compete with competitors from BMW and Audi.

Information about the technical characteristics of the novelty is scanty. According to the Korean Car Blog, the E-GMP platform is capable of supporting batteries of different capacities, which will allow the automaker to vary the range (it can easily grow up to 500 kilometers). Also, according to experts, it will not do without all-wheel drive.

In a series of electric cars may come out in June next year. So Koreans can present the novelty at the end of 2020 – beginning of 2021.

Meanwhile, spy shots of the new Hyundai Tucson, whose debut is expected in the very near future, have been posted on the Web. It is known that the fourth generation Tucson will receive an upgraded 2.0 R-Engine CRDi diesel. The engine range of the novelty will also include a turbo engine.
