The Electrified G80 replaces Genesis' midsize sedan's gas-fed mechanical parts with a competent EV powertrain.

The electrified G80 can accept not just an 87.2-kilowatt-hour battery pack but also an 800-volt charging architecture.

The G80's battery can be charged from 10% to 80% in as little as 22 minutes, thanks to the 187-kW maximum charging speed.

The G80 features the same V2L capabilities as the Genesis GV60, which means it can work as a 3.6-kW generator for external electric appliances.

The dual-motor configuration generates 365 horsepower and 516 pound-feet of torque.

Genesis predicts a total driving range of approximately 282 miles – and it accelerates quickly, reaching 60 mph in under 5 seconds.

The full-speed adaptive cruise control performs admirably and combines with the smooth operations of the electric engine

The only other quibble is that the rear electric motor takes up trunk room, reducing the G80's cargo capacity.

The G80 anticipates an MSRP of $75,000 to $80,000 before potential tax credits.

That's a considerable discount over a Tesla Model S, which now costs $110,690 in its base configuration.
