Welcome to Sleuth. Check out the hot news in the automotive industry.
The new Genesis model is electric
Hyundai’s premium division recently unveiled the GV60, an electric vehicle that uses the same platform as the Hyundai Ioniq 5 and Kia EV6. The GV60 is 5 and 7 inches (12.5 and 18 centimeters) shorter, respectively. Also, unlike the Hyundai and Kia, his two trims of the GV60 (Advance and Performance) are all-wheel drive.
The system produces 429 horsepower and 446 lb-ft of torque, but those numbers increase to 483/516 in Boost mode, part of the Performance trim. This only lasts 10 seconds, so it’s great for getting off the line for a quick start or passing slower vehicles.
All GV60s are fully equipped and get dual 12.3-inch touchscreens, upgraded Bang and Olufsen branded audio systems, and facial and fingerprint recognition to unlock and start the car. Genesis will also introduce his larger GV80 EV this year.
Honda confirms new electric car coming in 2024
Based on recently released renders, the upcoming Prologue appears to follow the hatchback design path taken by many other automakers. It will also use General Motors’ Altium electric vehicle platform, which will support upcoming Chevrolet, GMC and Cadillac models.
Honda’s Acura division plans to launch its own version in 2024. That model will be built alongside the Cadillac Lyric and the Prologue will be assembled in Mexico. Honda has also said that his future EV lineup will include two of his sports cars, one of which is rumored to use his Acura NSX name.
Land Rover launches longer Defender
The automaker’s iconic four-wheel-drive utility vehicle — reintroduced to North America in 2020 after a 13-year absence — is immediately available with three rows of seats that can carry up to eight passengers will be Dubbed the Defender 130, it is an extended version of the Defender 110, although the wheelbase remains unchanged.
Engine choices are a 395 hp turbocharged 3.0-liter straight-six and a 508 hp supercharged V8. Of course, the longer Defender handles off-road just like the other versions. That means it has nearly 30 cm of ground clearance and can traverse nearly 3 feet (91 cm) of water.
Polestar’s next EV to be announced this fall
Volvo’s electric car division will soon unveil the Polestar 3. Roughly the size of Volvo’s XC90 utility vehicle, the tall wagon joins the Polestar 2 hatchback and the two-door Polestar 1.
The company says the Polestar 3 will be built at its South Carolina facility for the North American market, but has said little else about its design and content. The Polestar 3 is followed by the Polestar 4 compact utility model and his Polestar 5 sedan which is larger.
Is Chrysler developing a new compact electric car?
Based on reports that the Stellantis brand recently patented the design of such a model, it seems certain. We also plan to bring back the Airflow name.
Earlier this year, several concept airflows were unveiled with a 201-horsepower electric motor. Sleuth isn’t sure if they’ll be part of production vehicles, and the new Airflow he expects to come out in 2024.
