2023 Genesis G80 Ev | Talking Cars With Consumer Reports #365 1

This week, we give our first impressions of the all-electric Genesis G80 (officially called the Electrified G80). We discuss the styling, electric range, driving dynamics, and luxurious interior of the EV sedan, and how it compares to the gas powered version. Also, with so many electric vehicles on the market, we debate which used EV we would recommend to a first time buyer.

  1. CR, Is it already Friday in Connecticut? 😉

  2. The Queen's Half Corgi | June 21, 2022 at 12:15 PM |

    0:06 I recall (years ago) CR said the Kia Optima was the most America car, in terms of where it was made, and numbers of made in America parts. Curious to know if that is still the case.

  3. Fun Fact the Car Care nut recently received a 2019 Prius Prime with 341k miles that still feels it only has 20-30k with no wear and tear with just regular maintenance and another reason to considered the Niro EV is that it in its last year of it current generation so there will be discounts and have the best reliability of all years

  4. Hyundai, Kia, are busy adding EV plants in Georgia. New battery plants too.. GV60 build in the US?

  5. I’d buy one if I needed a new car.

  6. Saw a G60 review where they had a lot of fun with the different EV sound generator.

  7. Ev with a heat pump would be good.

  8. 4:27 It doesn’t have a frunk is not a true ev.

  9. I love you guys, but I don’t know how you can evaluate EVs properly if you don’t have a level 2 home charger. Your perspective on them always shows and Mike keeps mentioning he doesn’t have one. Well obviously if someone gets an EV, unless they live in an apartment, they would get a Level 2 charger. So that point is moot. In addition, it wouldn’t surprise me if most folks considering an EV do have a 2nd car that isn’t pure EV. How about evaluating these with that in mind? Thanks again.

  10. You want answers?
    I think I’m entitled to them!
    You want answers?!
    I want the truth!!
    You can’t handle the truth!!!

    Lol Ryan can’t handle the truth! You guys are crazy. Thanks for the chuckle. Have be a great day 🙂

  11. A converted gas car will always be compromised. What is the purpose of the fake grille? What is the purpose of the huge under hood area to house an engine that doesn’t exist? This car will have a very limited appeal, compared to a ground up EV.

  12. US E G80 won’t have solar roof like other markets? Glad it has the infotainment controller from the GV70.

  13. 10-80% in a fully working 350 kW charger is 22 minutes for an E G80. Most of the time it will take longer but rarely over an hour.

  14. The importance of range for road trips really depends upon where you live. If you live in Wyoming it’s along way between fast chargers. In many other parts of the country 250 miles is plenty along major travel routes where fast chargers are typically only 100 miles a part. On road trips you rarely ever need to charge to 100% or even 80%. Just enough to get to the next fast charger and take advantage of the faster charging rates and you won’t ever need to charge for an hour.
    Charging speeds are also important to the road trip experience. Personally I can’t comfortably sit in any car for more than an hour and a half.

  15. 2 words: Lucid Air

  16. They talk like they’re unaware of the best charging infrastructure, Tesla, that makes long road trips possible.

  17. It needs 500 miles of range. I can’t drive from my house in southern Massachusetts to my home in Northern Maine .

  18. “Electified” is such a great name. If one ever catches on fire, they will call it “Electri-fried”.

  19. Expect to spend an hour with a box of Q-tips per wheel.
