The luxury brand just released a new car with fingerprint recognition

On the podium of the 2022 World Car of the Year, a hatchback punched the Audi e-tron GT and kicked the Mercedes-Benz EQS, winning the World Car of the Year, World Design of the Year, and Electric Car of the Year in one fell swoop Three awards, becoming the biggest winner of the audience.

Prior to this, it has successively won many awards such as German Car of the Year, British Car of the Year, and Best Car of the Year. It is not an exaggeration to describe it as "winning the award and getting soft".

It is a pity that this car, which has been widely recognized by the industry, has not been introduced to China, so it is little known in China. It is the Hyundai Ioniq 5.

The good news is that although we cannot experience the Ioniq 5 in China, now we have the opportunity to drive a new model with the same platform and the same motor as it – Genesis GV60.

Hallelujah, thanks for platforming.

There's a switch, press it

Now that platformization is mentioned, let's start with the E-GMP platform.

In fact, the body length of the Genesis GV60 is 12cm shorter than the Ioniq, at 4515mm, but thanks to the Hyundai E-GMP pure electric platform architecture, its wheelbase has reached 2900mm. available space within.

Under the flat floor is a 76.4kWh ternary lithium battery. However, the cruising range provided by this battery is not very impressive. The actual cruising range is about 400km, and the high-performance version will be 20km less.

Fortunately, the GV60 performs well in terms of energy replenishment. It supports 400V fast charging and 800V ultra-fast charging, and supports a charging power of up to 350kW. It can charge the battery from 10% to 80% in as little as 18 minutes.

Responsible for power output is a permanent magnet synchronous motor with a maximum power of 233.9kW (313 horsepower) and a maximum torque of 605N·m.

Of course, Genesis has also prepared another motor for speed fans-the maximum output power of the dual-motor four-wheel drive high-performance version has been further increased to 360kW (483 horsepower), and the maximum torque is as high as 700N m.

To stimulate the full power of the GV60, you only need to press the Boost button in the lower right corner of the steering wheel, which will compress the GV60's zero-to-hundred acceleration to 3.9 seconds.

This is very similar to the "N-Grin Shift" button on the modern Veloster N, which can burst the full power of the GV60 in a split second, but only for 10 seconds.

Stop, don't rush to list those models that can accelerate from zero to 100 in 3.9 seconds. The GV60's ability is not just fast——

It also has a Drift mode, in which the system distributes more power to the rear wheels, which is key.

Think about it, if you are driving a sports car or a car and drifting, someone may give you a "wow", and applaud you at most, just three times, no more. But drifting in an SUV, man, it's a job.

When something tall turns around, its aura is there.

When you don’t want to spin, the Genesis GV60 also prepares the electronic limited-slip differential e-LSD for you, which can intelligently distribute the power to the left and right wheels in high-speed corners. Moon's northern friend.

In addition, the pre-sensing electronic control suspension system on the GV60 can use the road surface information from the front camera phone and the road section information provided by the car navigation to adjust the suspension damping in advance, which complements the e-LSD.

All in all, although I can't drive Ioniq 5, it is good to have the opportunity to experience this GV60.

that damn sense of ritual

Having said that, although both GV60 and Ioniq 5 come from the E-GMP platform, after all, one is Hyundai and the other is Genesis. There is still a big difference between the two.

Genesis GV60 is positioned as an "urban luxury pure electric SUV", and the word "urban" is vividly reflected in the appearance of GV60.

The Ioniq 5 has a square shape and tough lines, while the GV60 shows the rounded side of the car design. The clamshell front cover is seamlessly integrated with the front fenders. The elegant and clean lines make the front face design more simple. The Genesis logo has become the finishing touch on the front face.

The roundness of the GV60 is round from the beginning to the end, and the side lines have very obvious characteristics of the Coupé model. The roof line pours down from the rear of the B-pillar, and passes through a raised rear wing, wrapping the taillights in it.

Different from the GV80 and GV70 that take the administrative route, Genesis's iconic "parallel dual lights" light set has become a more dynamic "wing of inspiration" on the GV60.

Different from its predecessors, the headlights of the GV60 are composed of modular LED light groups, integrating multiple functions including dynamic special effect welcome lights, daytime running lights, far and low beams, and emergency lights.

The most interesting thing is its reversing indicator light. When reversing, the GV60 can illuminate the reversing indicator light on the ground, reminding the pedestrians behind and making it easier for the driver to estimate the distance.

As for the luxurious side of the "urban luxury pure electric SUV", you can feel it when you get in the car.

Genesis GV60 did not choose to interpret luxury with shiny embellishments covering the center console, but continued the interior design of "the beauty of blank space". The simple and intuitive floating center console creates a proper sense of technology, and the retention of some physical buttons also improves the convenience of daily use.

Genesis GV60 is also the brand's first model equipped with a B&O audio system. The 17 speakers can create different sound effects for the driver and passengers. The active road noise control system in the cabin can also automatically generate reverberant noise to ensure of tranquility.

The most eye-catching thing is the luminous ball on the sub-dashboard, which is actually used for gear shifting. Genesis calls it "crystal ball shifting".

When the vehicle is not started, the ambient light embedded in the crystal ball will automatically light up, becoming the most eye-catching visual center in the cockpit. The moment the vehicle starts, the crystal ball flips over, revealing the knob-style shifting mechanism, which brings you a sense of ritual of starting in the most elegant way.

Yes, that's the damn sense of ritual.

The way Genesis creates a sense of ritual is not only this reversible crystal ball, but also two "unique" unlocking methods: face unlocking and fingerprint unlocking. Genesis has brought these two biological unlocking methods commonly used in mobile devices to the GV60, and they are standard configurations for all series.

Just touch the door handle before getting in the car, and the camera hidden in the B-pillar can recognize the driver's face and unlock it. At the same time, the system will coordinately adjust personalized settings such as HUD, seat angle, and steering wheel position according to the driver's presets.

After falling into the driver's seat, what awaits the driver is not an ordinary start button, but a fingerprint recognition sensor. In this way, under the premise of ensuring safety, GV60 has realized true keyless start.

Of course, you can also use your mobile phone to unlock the Genesis. On the basis of Bluetooth and NFC, GV60 adds UWB technology with lower latency and higher security. The vehicle can be unlocked at a distance of 1-1.5 meters from the mobile phone.

At this time, you may be wondering-is there anyone who doesn't carry a mobile phone these days? Why do you need fingerprint unlocking?

Don't ask, it's just the damn sense of ritual.

Tell a good story.
