Electrified G80 saloon is second all-electric Genesis to make its UK debut

London UK: Genesis Motor UK has revealed the full pricing and specification of its Electrified G80 saloon, the brand’s latest all-electric model following the launch of the GV60, and the recent unveiling of the Electrified GV70.

Electrified G80 is available exclusively in Luxury guise, with high levels of standard equipment, priced from £65,000. As with all Genesis models, Electrified G80 can be specified using the easy-to-use online configurator, which allows customers to choose from a range of color and trim options, as well select a number of carefully curated upgrade packages based on technology, innovation, and comfort.

Electrified G80 features an advanced and refined all-wheel-drive dual-motor powertrain that delivers a powerful 272kW combined output, which in combination with the 87.2kWh battery provides an impressive range of 321 miles (WLTP).

Thanks to the use of cutting-edge 800-volt architecture, Electrified G80 requires only 21 minutes to charge from 10 to 80% using a 350kW rapid charger. Available as an option is an innovative solar roof panel that can add over 1,000km of range over the course of a year.

Dominique Boesch, Managing Director for Genesis Motor Europe, commented: “Electrified G80 marks an important step in Genesis’ commitment to delivering an all-electric range by 2025. Combining the brand’s trademark premium design and unrivaled luxury with a cutting-edge electrified powertrain and innovative features, Electrified G80 has been created to provide customers with a seamless transition to EV ownership. It is also the second of three EV models Genesis will launch in 2022, joining the GV60 and the forthcoming Electrified GV70”.
