Genesis GV60 Magma Spy Shots Reveal A High-Performance Trim

The performance iteration of the luxury EV borrows elements from the famed Hyundai Ioniq 5 N.

The Genesis GV60 Magma spy shots indicate an even more powerful version of the luxury EV. The Hyundai Motor Company is not satisfied with keeping its Genesis sub-brand a premium-only affair. Sure it offers some of the most ostentatious automobiles out there, but the future looks diversified. Also, it makes sense since Genesis cars can easily borrow powertrains and platforms from established successful vehicles like the Hyundai Ioniq 5 and Kia EV6.

Genesis GV60 Magma Spy Shots

The spy shots capture the luxury electric car with a partially camouflaged body. At the front, the split-LED light cluster is reminiscent of the Genesis design philosophy. We even get to witness a broad grille section with a splitter at the front. Apart from that, the side profile captures the crossover silhouette of the luxury EV. The roof rails, sloping roofline, flush-fitting door handles and ginormous wheel arches accentuate the road presence significantly.

I particularly like the 21-inch elegant alloy wheels. At the rear, the sloping roofline culminates into a tailgate-mounted spoiler. It extends out of the body making it noticeable. The rear bumper wears a rather unique and rugged appearance with a chrome frame. The ‘V’-shaped elements near the C-pillar are a cool touch to elevate the exterior design language. I noticed that the ground clearance is quite low due to the suspension setup. That can be expected from a performance crossover.

Now, there have been no official announcements regarding the powertrain of the Genesis GV60 Magma. Nevertheless, I expect it to borrow most elements from the Hyundai Ioniq 5 N. Since, the Performance variant of the existing GV60 already boasts a potent dual-motor AWD configuration with 483 hp (with boost mode) and 700 Nm, the more hardcore driving version is bound to have a higher output than this. Note that the Ioniq 5 N makes 641 hp and 769 Nm. I believe the GV60 will also get a tuned electric powertrain to produce something similar if not slightly higher.

The luxury department of Hyundai Motor Company looks determined to enter the performance EV race as well. This would be a great situation for those who want to experience the thrilling driving dynamics of a hot EV along with the utmost comfort and top-notch quality cabin. I believe it will be a niche market. Still, with the backing of Hyundai’s expertise in this matter, it is worth a shot. This Genesis GV60 Magma prototype could go into production soon, first in Europe and then in other international markets.
