Genesis Motor America has announced an expansion of electric vehicle (EV) sales in the United States. The brand’s EV lineup is now available at select retailers in 15 states. This is another significant step as Genesis moves closer to its commitment to a more sustainable future, with the brand committing to delivering an all-electric lineup by 2030.
The GV60 SUV all-electric vehicle which was launched in 2021, and the electrified GV70 SUV and G80 executive sedan (saloon) models, are now available at select retailers in Arizona, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Louisiana, Maryland, Massachusetts, Nevada, New Jersey, New York, Texas, Utah, Virginia, Washington and Wisconsin.
Claudia Marquez, Genesis Motor North America CEO, said: “This expansion of EV sales in the United States marks a significant milestone in our journey towards an all-electric lineup by 2030. We are pleased to now be offering our award-winning lineup of electric vehicles to a much broader audience of American customers.”
Genesis Motor America, in collaboration with Electrify America, offers three years of 30-minute complimentary charging sessions from the date of vehicle purchase. Owners of the 2023 GV60 all-electric SUV, the 2023 electrified GV70 and G80 have access to hyper-fast charging on Electrify America’s coast-to-coast charging network. They can seamlessly locate and access charging stations while on the road via the Genesis Connected Services and Electrify America mobile apps.
Earlier this year, it was reported that the Genesis X Convertible Concept, which was showcased at the 2022 LA Auto Show, will go into production. Apparently, Luc Donckerwolke, Genesis’ chief creative officer, announced about the Convertible Concept going on sale at the brand’s annual meeting.
The Genesis X is a high-end luxury electric car and once in production will become the brand’s flagship zero emissions model. It was the third in the brand’s trilogy of concept electric vehicles. This concept model featured a neat folding hardtop roof that integrates transparent ‘moon roofs’ above the front occupants to provide an open feel even when closed.
