Today at the Beijing Auto Show, Genesis showcased the newly designed Electrified G80. Reaffirming its commitment to China, the redesigned Electrified G80 luxury sedan incorporates features tailored to meet the market’s unique customer preferences, which include an exclusive China-only “Vision Blue” color. 

The newly designed Electrified G80 was unveiled in a new blue color exclusive to the Chinese market. Inspired by the Chinese saying that “the color blue is richer than its indigo origin,” this new two-toned color, named Vision Blue, is derived from the noble blue color in Chinese culture and reinterpreted with Genesis’s unique aesthetics. 

The Electrified G80 illustrates the progression of Genesis’ EV design. Its dignified front face features the brand’s iconic G-Matrix Crest Grille with MLA headlamps and a refined bumper, portraying a stance of confidence. The vehicle’s elongated wheelbase, which has been increased by 130 millimetres, adds to the sense of elegance and closely resembles the side profile and daylight opening (DLO) of the brand’s flagship model, the Genesis G90.

Electrified G80 and G80 EV MAGMA Concept

Together with the brand’s signature Parabolic Lines flowing over the new dish-style 19-inch wheels, the chrome garnish that envelopes the front, side, and rear further elevates the overall look of the vehicle. Befitting a luxury EV, the charging port cover has also been upgraded to open and close electronically. 

As for the interior, the Electrified G80’s longer wheelbase not only offers more space in the second row, but brings with it a myriad of new features that are designed to enhance passenger comfort. After entering through the easy-close door, passengers can settle into reclining VIP seats with leg rests in privacy behind a rear-window curtain. The Ergo Motion Seats and Integrated Memory System (IMS) in the second row are also new features that are not found in its predecessor. 

The interior is further upgraded with the quilted garnish newly added to the second-row door. The vehicle’s cabin offers personalized entertainment for relaxation and work with a 27-inch OLED display, as well as a 17-speaker Bang & Olufsen sound system. Driving comfort is further elevated thanks to improved noise, vibration and harshness (NVH) reduction, adding to the experience of effortless luxury.
