Genesis shows an electric crossover that is related to the Ioniq 5 and the Kia EV6. The Kia Sorento plug-in hybrid is rated at 32 electric miles. And is the Ioniq 6 electric sedan arriving late? All this and more in this Hyundai round-up here at Green Car Reports.
Hyundai’s luxury brand Genesis has unveiled its first dedicated electric vehicle – in the form of the Genesis GV60 prototype. The GV60 looks almost ready for series production and will be delivered in North America in 2022 – technical details and information on performance, range and potential bidirectional charging are still pending.
Rated 32 all-electric miles and 34 mpg, the Kia Sorento plug-in hybrid beats its Hyundai Santa Fe PHEV cousin while packing three rows of seats. Pricing for this model, which is expected at dealerships soon, has yet to come, so we look forward to seeing how it takes into account its value over the Toyota RAV4 Prime or even the Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid.
Hyundai is said to be delaying the Ioniq 6 electric sedan, which is based on the Prophecy concept, by a few months. It was scheduled to arrive in the US in 2022, and Hyundai has not clarified whether that will change the schedule for its launch.
And over at the Motor Authority: Nio plans to start a mass market brand that will advocate for affordable electric cars in large numbers like Volkswagen. That’s quite a leap for a company that was on the verge of failure a year ago.
