A stylish crowd gathered in the spacious Rocky Mountaineer Station space in Vancouver on Friday February 24, to witness the West Coast unveiling of Genesis’s newest electrified model, the Genesis Electrified GV70. The company, which currently does not have a showroom in the Lower Mainland, had several Genesis models for guests to experience, including the G70, recent award-winning Electrified G80, G90, and GV80.
“The Electrified GV70 represents a significant milestone as we continue on our journey toward full electrification by 2030,” says Eric Marshall, Director of Genesis Motors Canada. “We are pleased to be expanding our electric vehicle portfolio, particularly in a space where we see a significant opportunity for sustainable growth here in Canada.”
Roughly 340 people, a combination of current Genesis owners, buyers considering a Genesis, media, and a handful of Genesis Canada reps enjoyed canapes, sipped wine and watched some talented aerial acrobats before getting the first look at the Electrified G70.
The Electrified GV70 is the third electric vehicle from Genesis, following the launch of the GV60 luxury SUV and Electrified G80 sedan last year. Genesis has committed that starting in 2025 all new models launched will be all-electric, and that its entire vehicle lineup will be electric by 2030.
Built upon the award-winning GV70 platform, the Electrified GV70 features a spacious, well-appointed interior and refined performance with a host of technologies designed exclusively for Electrified GV70.
