Costs & verdict

Everyday costs, plus how reliable and safe it is

As a cash purchase, the Genesis GV60 looks like an expensive option, and the entry-level Premium version costs considerably more than the Hyundai Ioniq 5 and Skoda Enyaq iV and slightly more than the Kia EV6.

Granted, you do get a much more pleasant interior and both the Ioniq 5 and Enyaq iV get smaller batteries (meaning you won’t go as far on a single charge). The EV6, on the other hand, matches the GV60’s 77.4kWh battery and the fast-charging capability but promises a range of more than 300 miles regardless of which version you choose. 

Likewise, both the GV60 and Genesis as a brand are too new to have featured in the 2021 What Car? Reliability Survey, so we don’t have data on either yet. Even so, Genesis’ sister brands Hyundai and Kia came third and ninth out of 30 manufacturers featured in the survey.

The GV60 comes with a five-year unlimited mileage warranty to give you peace of mind. It also comes with five years’ free servicing and five years’ free over-the-air (OTA) updates.

Genesis GV60 2022 interior infotainment

Overview

As the brand’s first dedicated electric car, the Genesis GV60 is a very good effort. It’s rapid in a straight line, cavernous for passengers and offers an interior that feels far more special than almost anything else out there. That said, the Kia EV6 will offer much of the same but for less money.

  • Plush interior
  • Cavernous passenger space
  • Sport Plus is blisteringly fast in a straight line
  • Boot is on the small side
  • Expensive to buy
  • Optional wing mirror cameras not as good as traditional mirrors
