With the rise of electric vehicle initiatives, including Drive Electric Alabama, the demand for EV’s has been stronger than ever. The Electrified GV70 is the third electric vehicle from Genesis following the launch of the GV60 SUV and the Electrified G80 executive sedan last year.

This new vehicle is special because it’s being manufactured in Montgomery as Genesis’ first ever model to be assembled in the US. Built upon the award-winning GV70 platform, it features a plush interior and refined performance.

“The Electrified G70 represents two important milestones as we continue on our journey toward full electrification by 2030. We are pleased to not only be growing our electric product portfolio, but also to be assembling Genesis products right here in America for the very first time.”

Claudia Marquez, Chief Operating Officer, Genesis Motor North America

Genesis has committed that all new models launched will be all-electric starting in 2025, and that its entire vehicle lineup will be electric by 2030. Genesis is working to achieve carbon neutrality across its operations by 2035.

At $65,850, the Genesis Electrified GV70 includes class-leading standard equipment and technologies. The best part? It comes equipped with the entire suite of available safety and advanced driver systems—no extra fees required.
