Genesis GV60 may feature wireless charging system: Reports

With the recent unveiling of the all-electric Genesis GV60 SUV which is the brand's first electric vehicle, reports are now doing rounds that it may get a wireless charging option. Though Genesis - the luxury vehicle arm of Hyundai – has not made any formal announcement yet, media reports say that the wireless charging option will be launched next year as a pilot program in South Korea.

The highlighting point of a wireless charging system is to provide a user with the convenience of home charging by removing the plugging in and out option. One can start charging an electric vehicle automatically by simply using a receiver pad parked over a ground assembly pad.

WiTricity is expected to be Hyundai's supplier of wireless charging, a report suggests. According to the values in the J2954 wireless charging standard that was released last year, the total power output of home wireless charging shall be around 7 or 11 kW. The efficiency of this system over a 10-inch (250-mm) ground clearance is expected to be at 94%.

It seems Genesis has some big plans for its first all-electric SUV which is based on the same Global-Electric Modular Platform (E-GMP) that is used for Hyundai Ioniq 5 and Kia EV6 electric vehicles. It features an 800V electrical architecture comprising an ultra-fast charging of 350kW. It can also host single or dual-motor power packages with a variety of battery sizes. In terms of designing, the GV60 sports two-signature quad headlamps on either side of the shield-shaped front grille. It also has a revamped version of the automaker's logo.
