2023 Genesis Electrified G80 Price Starts Below $80,000

Genesis finally entered the EV era in April 2021 with the introduction of the Electrified G80. Now available in the US, the Korean luxury car maker has also announced the price of an electric executive sedan for American buyers, which is under $80,000. Genesis also announced the expansion of its EV sales to four states in the US.

The 2023 Genesis Electrified G80 starts at $79,825, excluding the $1,095 shipping fee. The company’s first EV will be offered in a single trim level, an all-wheel-drive model with front and rear electric motors.

The G80’s two Electrified electric motors have a combined output of 365 horsepower (272 kilowatts) and a massive 516 pound-feet (700 Newton-meters) of instant torque. However, the driver has the option to switch to rear-wheel drive to save energy, especially when cruising.

Meanwhile, driving the motor is an 87.2kWh battery capable of fast charging from 10-80 percent in 22 minutes when using 350kW (800V) DC fast charging. The EPA’s estimated range isn’t out yet but Genesis boasts that the electric sedan should be able to hit 454 kilometers 282 miles on a single charge. It is also equipped with a solar roof which stores solar power for increased efficiency.

Meanwhile, Genesis also announced that it will launch EVs in four other US states, namely Arizona, Nevada, Utah, and Washington, bringing the total to eight. The current lineup of EVs from the US automaker consists of the Electrified G80 and 2023 Genesis GV60.

Buyers of the Genesis Electrified G80 and GV60 will also enjoy the fruits of the partnership between Genesis Motors America and Electrify America. Each owner of the first Genesis EV will receive three years of free 30-minute charging sessions from the date of vehicle purchase.
