At the top of the GV60 line-up, there’s an even faster Sport Plus variant. It shares the same dual-motor powertrain as the Kia EV6 GT, which means it produces 429bhp and 605Nm of torque. Genesis says this model will sprint from 0–62mph in four seconds flat, although range drops again to 228 miles according to the Korean test cycle.

Genesis has also fitted the GV60 with two features that are as-yet unseen on E-GMP-based vehicles from Hyundai and Kia – both of which are only available on the range-topping Sport Plus model. The first is called Boost Mode. It’s activated by a button on the steering wheel, and gives the EV an extra 54bhp and 95Nm of torque to improve overtaking performance.

The second is called Drift Mode, which sounds a little out of place on an electric SUV. Genesis hasn’t gone into too much detail about how the system works, but we know it alters the torque split of the all-wheel drive system to send more power to the rear motor. It also makes the most of the car’s electronic limited-slip differential.

Active noise cancelling helps improve refinement, along with a system called Road Preview. This uses data from a camera feed and the navigation to adjust the suspension settings on the fly for extra comfort.
