The interior design of the Genesis GV60 takes on Genesis’ design ethos of the ‘Beauty of White Space’. All the while seeking to create a spacious and comfortable interior. At the same time, it’s floating architecture. Also, unique details combine together. That’s to create a unique look.

The Crystal Sphere

The Crystal Sphere is one of the most compelling design elements of the GV60. It is not only an aesthetic element of the interior design. Yet, it is also built to create an emotional connection between the driver and the vehicle. When the vehicle is turned off, the Crystal Sphere becomes the vehicle’s mood lights. Thereby adding to the aesthetic of the driving experience. When the vehicle is ready to drive, the sphere rotates. So the Shift By Wire (SBW) appears. That’s creating an indoor atmosphere of futuristic mobility.

The GV60 is the first Genesis model to apply a next-generation infotainment system, ccIC (connected car Integrated Cockpit), which links clusters and navigation into a panoramic display while seamlessly connecting content throughout clusters, navigation, and HUD.

The floating console, where the Crystal Sphere is located.

For it looks as if it is hovering in the air. All working with other unique features such as the slim cockpit and flat floor to provide passengers with a maximum level of openness. In addition, the next-generation infotainment system – the connected car Integrated Cockpit (ccIC) – connects the cluster and navigation into a panoramic display, creating a high-tech lookand outstanding usability.

To create a truly luxurious driving experience, various components in the GV60’s interior. For that’s including the Crystal Sphere. Also, the horn cover. As well as the door handles, and the side mirror controllers. For they are decorated with circular embellishments.

To make the GV60 more sustainable, various parts are created with eco-friendly and recycled materials. The seats, door armrests, console armrests, and crash pads are made with plant-based leather. The seat covers and door center trims features fabrics made with yarns extracted from recycled PET bottles and fishnets. 

Innovative technologies that enable interactive experiences

The GV60 is equipped with innovative technologies to provide a unique electric vehicle experience. Innovations such as Face Connect, Fingerprint Authentication System, Over-the-Air (OTA) Software Update, and Digital Key 2 enable drivers to be connected to their vehicle.

Face Connect

Face Connect is a feature that allows the vehicle to recognize the driver’s face to lock or unlock its doors without a key. Drivers only need to touch the door handle and show their faces to the camera on the B-pillar. The feature can register two faces.

The feature uses a Near Infra-Red (NIR) camera to provide accurate facial recognition under virtually any circumstances – including in the dark or when the weather is cloudy. It also leverages Deep learning technology to improve accuracy.

With Face Connect, the Head-Up-Display (HUD), driver’s seat, steering wheel, side mirrors, and infotainment settings can be adjusted based on the driver’s customized settings. It can be automatically connected to individual driver profiles, providing a new level of convenience that makes it seem as if the vehicle recognizes the driver.

You Can Start the Car with your Fingerprint 

The GV60’s Fingerprint Authentication System allows drivers to start and drive the car without a key. It offers an authentication function for in-car payments and release of Valet Mode.  

This allows drivers to update their vehicle’s software. All without visiting a service center. For that’s so their vehicle is always up to date with the latest features.

In addition, the GV60 will feature a Digital Key 2 for the first time in a Genesis vehicle. This is an upgraded version of the existing digital key. Thereby enabling drivers to open the door without using their smartphone. Drivers can enter and start their car. I mean by simply touching the door handle. Also the digital key can be shared to up to three people.

Differentiated performance and premium EV driving capability

The GV60 is Genesis’ first vehicle to be built on the dedicated EV platform known as Electric-Global Modular Platform (E-GMP). For that’s marking the brand’s move toward electrification. It is available in three models. To start, a standard rear-wheel-drive model. Then a standard four-wheel-drive model. Finally, a performance model with four-wheel-drive.

Each model features a 77.4kWh battery, and the standard RWD model features a maximum driving range of 451km[2] per charge. I got simply around 250 miles in ECO MODE.

Crazy Performance 

The performance model features two 160kW motors for the front and rear wheels. Thereby delivering a total output of 320kW. All with a maximum torque of 605Nm. In addition, a maximum driving range of 368km per charge. It is an ideal option for customers seeking a fun driving experience.

Modes

The GV60 comes with a Boost Mode to give it a more dynamic and luxurious element. The mode immediately increases the performance of the vehicle’s maximum output. That’s making the driving experience more dynamic.

The Boost Mode button on the steering wheel activates additional performance for 10 seconds. This enables the vehicle to go from 0 to 100 km/h in just 4.0 seconds[3]

For drivers who are looking for a more dynamic experience, the GV60 also features a Drift Mode. It provides athletic driving by optimizing the distribution of driving power and braking system.

On top of its dynamic performance, the GV60 also delivers refined and luxurious driving experiences. 

The GV60 is the first model to feature an electric Active Sound Design (e-ASD). The system provides various virtual driving sounds through the speakers based on the driving mode, the vehicle’s speed, and accelerator pedal data.

Customers can choose from three sounds: a ‘Futuristic’ sound that symbolizes the direction of future mobility. I mean a soft and sporty ‘G-Engine’ sound that’s based on engine noises. Also an ‘E-Motor’ sound. One which reimagines the vehicle’s motor sounds.

ANC-R

It also features Road Active Noise Control (ANC-R) technology. All to minimize noise. For it uses various sound-absorbing materials. All to achieve silence while driving.

In addition, the electronic-Limited Slip Differential (e-LSD). For it enables an optimal amount of torque to be distributed to the wheels. All when turning around at high speeds. Thereby improving performance when cornering and starting off. This offers drivers more stable control. Especially on slippery roads and in snowy or rainy weather. 

Excellent Suspension System

The GV60 also features the Preview Electronic Control Suspension (Pre-view ECS). I mean one which uses information gathered from the front camera and navigation system. So that’s all to recognize situations. Those that could have an impact on the vehicle. I mean like speed bumps, in advance. Because it also controls the damping force of the suspension. That’s according to the surface of the road to offer passengers optimal comfort. 

The GV60 also features a MacPherson multi-link suspension system for the front wheels. Also, a five-multi-link suspension system for the rear wheels. In addition, an R-MDPS (Rack-mounted, motor-driven power steering). All to enhance basic performance. As well as including handling. Furthermore, comfort and stability.

New battery charging technology to make drivers’ lives easier

The GV60 is the first model to feature a battery conditioning function that manages the battery’s temperature to ensure optimal conditions. 

Battery conditioning is a function that not only preheats to secure better performance when the battery temperature is low, but also shortens the amount of charging time by adjusting the battery temperature. By pairing with the infotainment system, it allows drivers to optimize battery conditions while searching for a fast-charging station on the navigation.

The GV60 applies a 400/800V multi rapid charging system that boosts the 400V supplied by the charger to 800V. It is optimized for the vehicle’s system thanks to the vehicle’s driving motor and inverter, enabling stable and rapid charging with various charging infrastructures.

When charging at 350kW with the ultra-speed charging function, the battery can be charged from 10 percent to 80 percent in just 18 minutes. Furthermore, charging time for the slow charging function has been shortened by increasing the charging capacity from 7.2kW to 11kW.

Can to Vehicle to Home

The GV60 can also be used as a mobile power source, as it provides a V2L (Vehicle to Load) function that enables its battery to charge other electronic devices. The V2L function supports a 3.6kW charge, which is higher than the power supply in the average home. This gives customers the freedom to use electricity regardless of location when camping or enjoying outdoor activities.

Next generation infotainment system and various specifications exclusive to EV

The GV60 offers customers a smarter take on mobility with a cutting-edge infotainment system and various connected car services designed specifically for electric vehicles.

The GV60 is the first Genesis model to apply a next-generation infotainment system, ccIC (connected car Integrated Cockpit), which links clusters and navigation into a panoramic display while seamlessly connecting content throughout clusters, navigation, and HUD.

The cluster connected to navigation provides key information for safe driving via a three-view display for maps. Also navigation (normal/AR mode) and ADAS (Advanced Driver Assistance Systems). It also enables drivers to easily grasp a variety of information related to driving. For that’s phone calls, media, voice recognition. Also and more through cluster’s split screens. I mean screens that integrate all the information on trip computer and navigation.

The GV60 is also Genesis’ first to feature a Bang & Olufsen sound system.

Genesis collaborated with the world-class Danish audio company. One which was founded in 1925. All to develop a component for Hi-Res Audio output and offer customers the best luxury sound experience. With a tap of their finger, using Bang & Olufsen’s dedicated sound control interface. Then drivers and passengers can choose a sound mix for specific atmospheres encompassing four ‘moods’ (Relax, Energetic, Bright, and Warm).

The 17 speakers complete the premium audio system. The aluminum grille that features Genesis’ G-Matrix pattern emphasizes the vehicle’s sophisticated design and maximizes the sense of luxury.

A Drivers Seat Like No Other

The Relaxation Comfort seats help the driver and front passenger feel comfortable while charging or parking the vehicle. The Ergo Motion Seat with seven air pockets ensures extra comfort. I mean especially for drivers.

Regen

Moreover, the Smart Regeneration System 2.0 helps optimize energy regeneration. All by automatically adjusting the regenerative brake. For that’s according to traffic data and navigation map information.

i-Pedal (Intelligent Pedal) mode allows the driver to accelerate, decelerate, and stop using just the accelerator pedal. This mode can be activated under the strongest regenerative brake stage. All which can be selected by utilizing the paddle shift. It not only enables one-pedal driving. Yet that also maximizes the regenerative brake. For that’s increasing the car’s driving range.

Various cutting-edge driver assistance systems and a robust body for enhanced safety

The GV60 offers a safe and convenient driving experience with advanced autonomous driving technology that is based on active safety approach, as well as various driver assistance systems, protecting passengers from possible dangers both inside and outside of the vehicle. 

These safety and convenience features include Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist (FCA), Lane Keeping Assist (LKA), Blind-Spot Collision-Avoidance Assist (BCA), Safe Exit Assist (SEA), Intelligent Speed Limit Assist (ISLA), Driver Attention Warning (DAW), rear side monitor, High Beam Assist (HBA), Smart Cruise Control (SCC), Navigation based Smart Cruise Control (NSCC).

Also, Lane Following Assist (LFA), Highway Driving Assist 2(HDA 2), Rear View Monitor (RVM), Surround View Monitor (SVM), Rear Cross-traffic Collision-Avoidance Assist (RCCA), Parking Distance Warnings for the front, side and rear (PDW), Rear Parking Collision-Avoidance Assist, and Remote Smart Parking Assist (RSPA).

The Multi-Collision Brake (MCB) automatically activates the brake if the driver temporarily loses control of the vehicle after a first collision. The Pre-Active Front Seat Belt protects passengers by fastening the seat belt in advance when encountering a dangerous situation.

In addition to these active safety features, the GV60 uses a multi-frame structure at the front that distributes energy from collisions.

On the side, it also applied hot-stamping reinforcement materials to the center pillar and applied aluminum parts to the side to ensure passenger and battery stability.

A total of eight airbags, including the center side airbags in front seats, have been provided as standard options to ensure the safety of passengers in the event of an accident.
