2023 Genesis GV60 First Drive Review: Keep EVs Weird

There is no better place for the 2023 Genesis GV60 launch than Austin, Texas.

The “keep Austin weird” vibe is inescapable. Change is in the air, too. Heck, Genesis has the assembled auto journos all start our journey on Electric Drive, a charger-lined bit of road right beside the old power plant.

As Genesis’ first fully electric model, the GV60 needs to make a statement. And make one it does. Call it a crossover, call it a hatchback—whatever it is, the GV60 is a style-forward personal luxury vehicle that sits on the cutting edge while avoiding easy classification.

At the debut of the brand’s first SUV, the GV80 in 2020, company PR man Jarred Pellat told AutoGuide that Genesis would be skipping right over hybrid or plug-in models and going straight to full electrification. Not even two years later, the GV60 is the first result.

Genesis GV60 vs Volvo C40 Comparison: High-Style EV Face-Off

The EV market is growing at such a pace that automakers can now start exploring niches. The latest examples? The Genesis GV60 and Volvo C40.

Both of these all-electric offerings are ostensibly SUVs, but not really. In operation the GV60, with its wild looks and squat shape, is more of a tall hatchback. Same goes for the Volvo C40; it’s right there in the name, the C prefix traditionally going on coupes and hatchbacks.

Both Genesis and Volvo know the market craves SUVs, though. So unlike our last premium EV comparison, which saw two sedans face off, this one pits two high-style crossovers against one another. Even if they saw just as little time off the tarmac. Managing Editor Mike Schlee joined me to figure out which one is the king of this niche.
