Genesis reveals new Electrified G80 with more range, space, and style

Luxury automaker Genesis revealed the new Electrified G80 at the Busan International Mobility Show (BIMOS) on Thursday. The updated luxury EV features a bigger battery for more range. Meanwhile, Genesis touched up the design for a more classy and sophisticated look. Check it out below.

Three years after its global debut, the Genesis Electrifed G80 is due for an update. Genesis revealed the new model in Korea for the first time at BIMOS 2024.

The Electrified G80 was the brand’s first EV and answer to luxury rivals like the Tesla Model S. With the competition heating up, Genesis is already refreshing the midsize luxury electric sedan.

Genesis revealed the new model in Korea with several interior and exterior updates. It also gained a bigger battery for more range. One of the first things you will notice is the three-dimensional crest grille up front. Genesis also added MLA tech to its signature two-line headlamps.

The new model also includes a slightly redesigned bumper. Newly designed 19″ wheels are added to flow with Genesis’ iconic parabolic lines.

With a longer wheelbase, the new Genesis Electrified G80 includes a roomier second row. In addition, the 27″ display combines the cluster and infotainment into one.

Mood lamps improved brightness, while an included Bang & Olufsen sound system provides premium-level sound.

Genesis added several new features, including an EasyClose system that closes the door with the push of a button.

Even better, Genesis included reclining VIP seats with leg rests and a rear window curtain for privacy.

Powered by a larger battery pack (95.4 kWh vs 87.2 kWh), the new electric sedan can travel up to 295 miles (475 km) by Korean standards. In the US, it will likely add a few miles to its current EPA-estimated 282-mile range.

Genesis plans to launch the new Electrified G80 in Korea in August. It’s expected to launch across Europe and North America soon after.

The new model was displayed alongside its larger Neolun concept, previewing its first full-size electric SUV.
