The all new Genesis GV90 prototype has been caught for the first time by our colleagues at SB-Medien during hot weather test near Death Valley, California.
The new flagship was hot weather testing in Death Valley last week before the flooding and difficult weather conditions which we have right now on the hottest place on earth. This is the first time that the new Genesis GV90 could be seen with the production body. Engineers were protecting the prototype very strong, so that I was not able to get more pictures. But the difference between this new GV90 and the GV80 could be seen easily.
The GV90 is a next-generation electric vehicle under development by Hyundai Motor Group and it will be the first large electric sport utility vehicle (SUV) to be introduced under the Genesis brand. Samsung’s cutting-edge components will be used to implement Hyundai’s next-generation flagship SUV.
So, Samsung Electronics and Samsung Display are working with the Exynos Auto V920 processor for vehicles together with an organic light emitting diode (OLED) display to supply the Genesis GV90. The GV90 will maximize R&D efficiency, including development period and cost, by sharing major parts with electric SUVs already under development by Hyundai and Kia. Despite the KIA EV9 still uses the E-GMP platform,
Hyundai allegedly premiere the eM platform in the IONIQ 7 and later will be used by Kia’s GT1 electric sedan and the proper GV90 (to be launched in 2024 and 2025 respectively). If this new platform in recently leaked documents showed a battery capacity of up to 113 kWh and an expected range of up to 800 km, we could guarantee that Genesis’ future flagship SUV will be competitive.
