Then the Koreans brought this thing and it is (almost) with us

Colmobil, Genesis' importer to Israel, is launching the brand's completely first electric car in Israel.
This is a converted version for electric propulsion of the G80 saloon car.
This is a second modified version of Genesis' petrol cars, and it joins the electric version of the GV70, the compact crossover that was tested with us upon its arrival in Israel.
Do not confuse please with the dedicated tram of the GV60 division.
In fact it is just a kind of designation, as it is based on a common platform also for the Hyundai Ionic 5 and Kia EV6, the car of the year in Europe for those who do not remember.

The Interesting Trams of 2022

Externally, the electric version is no different from the one with the petrol engine except for the grille that has become sealed, rims in a different design for the wheels and of course in the back you will not find exhaust in its case.
The cabin has more significant changes with different views in the dashboard (12.3 inches) and in the multimedia system (14.5 inches) with more differences - a 70-liter trunk smaller than the petrol version and generally modest with only 354 liters.
In both the "Luxury" and "Premium" trim levels, the G80e will receive the Genesis full safety system;
Adaptive cruise control, correction of deviation from the lane, warning of a vehicle in a "dead zone" including preventing lane crossing, automatic braking also in detecting cross-movement in the forward and backward travel, warning of forgetting a child in the back seat and more.
The rest of the equipment list, as in the G80 is very long and we will mention the prominent components in it: adaptive shocks, double windshields, heating and ventilation for the electric leather seats, audio system with 17 speakers, electric trunk and high finish also top view control of vehicle systems Remember us for the first time in Israel - a solar roof.
According to Genesis in the annual calculation the roof "equals" an additional 900 km in range.

On the propulsion, two electric motors that create dual propulsion, a combined power of 370 hp and 71.4 kg.
An energy flow controller will manage the horse flow between rear or dual propulsion modes depending on the road conditions and driving mode selected to suit a situation where performance or range improvement is required.
On the performance side, Genesis announces a jump to 100 km / h in 4.9 seconds, on the range side it publishes a figure of 520 km.
The 87.2 kWh battery is responsible for this range.
Hyundai's ultra-fast charging technology is responsible for its ultra-fast charging, which allows the car to increase the charging voltage from 400 to 800 volts independently. Charging at 350 kilowatts (not currently available in Israel) will allow charging from -10% to 80% which equals 300 km of driving distance in 22 minutes.
An 11 kilowatt household outlet will bring the car from 10% to 100% in 9 hours.

As in other cases of electric versions of existing cars, whether it is Kia Niro EV or Mercedes EQA, also in the case of the Genesis G80 electric - there is a significant price difference between it and the petrol version.
While the latter starts at NIS 385,000 and reaches NIS 439,000, the prices of the electric version start at NIS 449,000 for the premium finish level and reach up to NIS 479,000 for the luxury finish level.
The car itself has not yet arrived in Israel and first units are expected only in July.
In terms of competition, for now the electric G80 does not meet a rival in the domestic market.
The car that will be closest in size is supposed to be a Mercedes EQE that is expected to go on sale next month, however if you rely on past experience, the price is expected to be much higher.
