In terms of practicality, the G80 Electric Saloon is likely to offer a comfortable and spacious interior, accommodating passengers with ample legroom and headroom. The practicality could be enhanced by adjustable seating, versatile cargo space, and various storage compartments to keep items organized during travel. Moreover, electric vehicles often offer practical benefits such as low maintenance requirements and potential savings on fuel costs due to their electric powertrain.

The boot space in the Genesis G80 Electric Saloon offers 354 litres of space. Generally, electric sedans allocate space for the electric drivetrain components and battery packs, which can affect the available boot space. However, the G80 Electric Saloon has a practical boot space to accommodate everyday items, groceries, luggage, or other essentials.

Interior and Trims

The interior of the G80 Electric Saloon offers a delightful atmosphere. It features a rich selection of high-quality materials, an aesthetically pleasing design, and expansive screens that add to the overall satisfaction.

At the heart of the cabin is a prominent 14.5-inch touchscreen display positioned atop the dashboard. Complementing this, there's an 8.0-inch display situated behind the luxurious two-spoke steering wheel, presenting clear graphics and a sharp interface. However, opting for the 3D effect for the driver's display might introduce a slightly psychedelic feel.

Navigating the main screen is straightforward when stationary. Yet, given its distance from the driver's seat, you'll find the need to utilize the click wheel adjacent to the gear selector. It's essential to avoid confusing the two, as they share a similar size and shape.

While the infotainment system generally offers a smooth user experience, certain menus can be a bit intricate to navigate. Fortunately, the standard inclusion of Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, with the option for wireless connectivity, helps alleviate this complexity. Additionally, the climate control features a dedicated area separate from the main touchscreen. Temperature adjustments are made using physical dials, while airflow, seat heating, and ventilation are conveniently managed through a touchscreen interface.

One trim level available: Luxury.

The singular trim option available for the Genesis Electrified G80 is impressively loaded with notable features. These encompass 19-inch alloy wheels, adaptive cruise control, a spacious 14.5-inch infotainment display compatible with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, a wireless phone charging feature, and a range of driver assistance systems.

Power and Performance

The Genesis Electrified G80 is equipped with an 87.2kWh battery pack, complemented by dual electric motors. Each axle features an electric motor, granting the vehicle all-wheel drive capability, ensuring robust acceleration and traction, especially in adverse weather conditions.

The combined output of these motors amounts to 370hp and an impressive torque of 700Nm, enabling acceleration from 0 to 60mph in just 4.9 seconds, with a top speed of 139mph.

Genesis G80 Electric Saloon Interior

Thanks to the substantial battery capacity, the G80 Electrified offers a commendable range of up to 323 miles on a single charge. Our tests have shown that achieving close to this range across mixed driving conditions is feasible. Moreover, the addition of solar panels on the roof further enhances efficiency, bringing you even closer to maximizing the range potential.

Overall, the Genesis G80 Electric Saloon stands as a strong contender in the luxury electric sedan segment, boasting impressive performance, a luxurious interior, and a commitment to sustainability that aligns with the changing landscape of the automotive industry.
