There are three drive modes to choose from, Eco, Normal and Sport.
The Eco setting makes the GV60 accelerate relatively gently. Normal mode is the one we used for most our driving as we feel that’s what most owners would do.
Sport mode makes it go like a rocket and provides instant grunt to help you overtake in a short space when you see a chance to get past a slower car during country driving.
Or you can simply use it just for the fun it provides.
The i-PEDAL regenerative braking mode enables a single-pedal driving strategy that allows acceleration, deceleration and stopping of the vehicle using only the accelerator
Step into the back seats and the car’s nearly 2950mm wheelbase affords rear passengers a huge amount of legroom, but the higher floor (due to the battery pack) and sloping rear window line may make the back seat a little less pleasant for taller occupants.
Try before you buy…
What we like?
Goes like a rocket
What we don’t like?
Distracting camera mirrors
Elevated floor and sloping rear window make space tight
The bottom line?
Genesis GV60 EV is a most impressive piece of automotive engineering.
It goes like crazy when you give it a boot full yet is happy to run quietly and gently around town.
Would I buy one? Not at this time, it’s very expensive and while the range is pretty good it still takes time to charge it up and that can be a pain at times.
