2024 Genesis Electrified G80 (G80 EV): What’s next for the electric sedan

  • First model year update for the Genesis Electrified G80 in the U.S.
  • Not expected to have upgraded performance, but could deliver improved range
  • May have a few equipment revisions, but no major changes are anticipated
  • The 2024 Genesis Electrified G80 should be priced at around USD 80,000

The Genesis Electrified G80 made its world premiere in April 2021 and hit U.S. dealerships as a 2023 model in September 2022. While it was initially only available in 8 states, that number has since increased to 23 as of May 2023.

The electric executive sedan is expected to receive its first model year update in the U.S. in Q3 2023 (July-September 2023). The 2024 Genesis Electrified G80 will be taking on some tough competitors in the U.S. market, including the Mercedes EQE, Tesla Model S, Lucid Air, and the incoming BMW i5. Here’s a rundown of everything we expect from the update. The details and accompanying images in this story represent the current model year, and we will share updates here as additional information becomes available.

No Design changes

The 2024 Genesis Electrified G80 is expected to be a carry-over model for the U.S. However, customers who want a refreshed look and some additional cosmetic changes in the car will have to wait a year or so. New spy media show that the facelifted Genesis G80 is undergoing road-testing in South Korea, and it is expected that the refreshed gas-powered version and its electric counterpart will be available as a 2025 model in 2024.

  • The Genesis Electrified G80 is the brand’s first electric car. It embodies the ‘Athletic Elegance’ and ‘Beauty of White Space’ design concepts in the exterior and interior.
  • The EPA-est. range is 282 miles for the 2023 model but could be slightly better for the 2024 model. At a 350 kW rapid charging station, the battery charges 10% to 80% in 22 minutes.
  • The Electrified G80 comes exclusively in all-wheel-drive. The two motors deliver 272 kW (365 hp) and 516 lb.-ft. The sedan accelerates from 0 to 60 mph in 4.9 seconds in Sports mode.
  • The G80 electric has a Disconnector Actuator System (DAS) that automatically connects or disconnects the motor and driveshaft based on the driving conditions, including vehicle speed and the driving mode, seamlessly switching between 2WD and AWD to reduce power loss and improve efficiency.
  • The Electrified G80 comes with a 400V/800V multi rapid charging system that does not entail an additional converter. The motor and inverter can boost voltage from 400V to 800V for stable charging.
  • The Electrified G80 also offers V2L (Vehicle to Load) that lets customers use the energy stored in its traction battery pack to run appliances outside the vehicle.
  • The Genesis G80 EV comes with ANC-R (Active Noise Control-Road). The noise cancellation system significantly reduces noise by measuring and analyzing road noises with four sensors and six microphones placed inside the vehicle and simultaneously generating sounds at the opposite phase.
  • The Preview Electronic Control Suspension (Pre-view ECS) is controlled by information supplied through the front camera and navigation system, which helps to create an optimum driving experience.
  • The brand’s signature Crest Grille is converted into an ‘aerodynamic crest’ sporting an inverted G-Matrix design. The charging flap is placed in the grille’s upper right corner. Dual chrome lines have been applied as a design highlight.
  • The Genesis G80 EV comes with a solar roof (not available in the U.S.) for increased efficiency.
  • It uses aluminum and carbon fiber reinforced plastics to reduce body weight while enhancing rigidity.
  • Sustainable materials, wood, PET, nylon, and natural dyes are used in areas like the seat fabric, console, and rear armrests.
  • Exclusive color options for the Genesis Electrified G80 are Matira Blue (exterior) and the Dark Lagoon Green/Glacier White two-tone (interior)


The 2024 Genesis Electrified G80 would be a carryover model, so it may not have changes to the specifications. A few efficiency-related enhancements could lead to a slightly improved range, though.

The Electrified G80 has an 87.2 kWh battery pack that allows a range of up to 282 miles in the outgoing model. Charging from 10 to 100% SoC using a Level 2 charger takes 7 hours, 22 minutes. With a 350 kW rapid charger, charging from 10 to 80% takes just 22 minutes, though.

136 kW (182 hp)/258 lb-ft motors, one at the front and one at the rear, enable all-wheel drive. In total, there’s 272 kW (365 hp) and 516 lb.-ft. of torque available in the electric sedan. A 0-62 mph sprint takes just 4.9 seconds in sports mode. The car is equipped with a Disconnector Actuator System (DAS), which means minimized power loss and the flexibility to switch between 2WD and AWD drivetrain layouts.

The 2024 Genesis Electrified G80, like the outgoing model, may come in a single fully-loaded trim. While there could be a few equipment changes, we’re confident that full LED lighting, 19-inch wheels, noise-reducing acoustic laminated glass, and heated and auto-dimming mirrors will continue to be standard.

Interior highlights would include a 14.5-inch HD touchscreen infotainment system, a 16-way power driver seat with 4-way power lumbar support, and power side bolster and cushion extension, a 12-way power front passenger seat with 4-way power lumbar support, regenerative braking control paddle shifters, and a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster.

The Genesis Electrified G80 has ten airbags, including a front center side airbag, to reduce the injuries from a collision between the driver and front passenger. Lane Keeping Assist, Lane Following Assist, and Highway Driving Assist are some of the other main standard safety features. We expect the 2024 model year update to carry over these standard safety features. The G80 EV has 17% more body rigidity than the regular Genesis G80.

TopElectricSUV says

The Genesis Electrified G80 may not match the impressive range or performance of the Tesla Model S, but it still offers a compelling option within the executive sedan segment with its unique style and comfortable, feature-rich interior. Features like vehicle-to-load (V2L) and 800-volt charger support are handy, despite not being a dedicated EV. However, its price point remains a significant drawback.
