GV60 was unveiled on the Genesis stand by European Managing Director Dominique Boesch.

“Salon Privé is one of the most exclusive events in Europe and so for us it was a perfect fit for GV60 to make its European debut” said Boesch. “Since launching in Europe less than a year ago, it is a huge honour to headline the first day of this amazing event and we are so proud to kick off our journey to electrification here at Salon Privé with GV60.”

To coincide with the car’s arrival in the UK, an exclusive film was created which shows GV60 making its journey across London throughout the night, passing famous landmarks on route, finally arriving at the reveal location. The full film can be watched here: https://youtu.be/puDpcIUVqxs.

    Premium; a single motor RWD 168kW model
    Sport; a 160 kW + 74kW dual motor, AWD model
    Sport Plus; a 160kW + 160kW AWD performance variant with Drift and Boost modes

All feature a 77.4kWh battery, which can be charged from 10 percent to 80 percent in just 18 minutes using the bespoke electric global modular platform (E-GMP).
