Should you buy one?

The Genesis Electrified G80 has plenty to offer to luxury electric car buyers. While it lacks the solid-gold premium image of established brands such as Audi, Mercedes-Benz and BMW, we love the crisp, distinctive styling that makes it super-clear what kind of target audience this car is courting, and the interior quality is absolutely top notch. We would certainly be putting it on our potential shopping list.

When we drove the petrol and diesel G80, we were left with the impression that this was a good car in search of a better engine – and the electric drive system has delivered this superbly. This version feels more than fast enough, offers typically excellent electric car refinement (at least until you reach very high speeds), and is generally thoroughly satisfying to drive.

The driving range is acceptable, while the faster charging times give Genesis a competitive edge. The ownership package goes beyond what most conventional rivals are offering as well, and though pricing starts to get a little heavy if you get too carried away with the options, you are getting quite a lot of sophistication for the money.

What we like

The standout looks inside and out, the appealing driving experience and the fast charging are the stuff you’ll appreciate every day. The personalised ownership experience and five-year care package should help smooth out any bumps along the way.

What we don’t like

The small boot is a bit laughable for a car of this size and if you were expecting a bargain price to go with the unproven image you may be in for a shock.
