The G80’s heart transplant encompasses the fitment of power electronics in the place of the twin-turbo 3.5-liter V-6 and an 87.2-kWh battery under the floor. Available exclusively in a dual-motor all-wheel-drive configuration, the electric G80 has a combined output that measures 365 horsepower and 516 pound-feet of torque—an upgrade compared to the 3.5T Sport model’s 375 horses and 391 pound-feet of torque. The company quotes the sprint to 60 mph at 4.9 seconds, which is just 0.2 second behind what is recorded for the combustion variant. Hooked to a 350-kW DC fast-charger, the battery needs a claimed 22 minutes to charge from 10 to 80 percent. Plugged into a Level 2 outlet, Genesis says, empty to full takes a little over seven hours. According to Genesis, the range is 282 miles.
