Genesis Electric Models GV70 and G80 Earn Five-Star Euro NCAP Safety Rating

Genesis Motor Europe has announced that its electrified models, GV70 and G80, have been awarded a five-star safety rating by Euro NCAP. Both vehicles, which were launched in 2022, received high scores from Europe’s leading safety testing organization. This achievement means that all current Genesis models available in Europe, including GV60, G70, GV70, G80, and GV80, have now received the highest possible safety score.

Why It Matters

The Euro NCAP’s five-star rating is a testament to Genesis’s commitment to safety and innovation. The organization’s rigorous testing process noted the strong performance of both vehicles during crash tests, particularly praising their impact protection and structural stability during frontal collision and side impact tests. This high rating is a significant endorsement for Genesis, as Euro NCAP is globally recognized for its independent and impartial safety evaluations.

Key Points

  • Both the Electrified GV70 and Electrified G80 feature advanced driver assistance and passive safety protection systems.
  • The vehicles are equipped with an industry-leading center airbag that inflates in just 0.03 seconds to protect front seat passengers during a side impact.
  • The vehicles’ Safety Assist category includes numerous advanced driver safety systems, such as the Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist (FCA) system, which is effective in avoiding car-to-car collisions and alerting drivers to vulnerable road users like cyclists and pedestrians.
  • Over 40 controllers work in real-time to ensure the safest response in various scenarios, enhancing the safety and security of all occupants.

Bottom Line

Genesis Motor Europe’s Managing Director, Lawrence Hamilton, expressed pride and delight at the five-star Euro NCAP ratings for the Electrified GV70 and Electrified G80. He emphasized that the safety of Genesis cars is paramount and that these ratings are a testament to the brand’s unwavering commitment to providing exceptional peace of mind for its customers.
