Best Home EV Charger for Genesis GV60

GV60 is the first all-electric crossover SUV from the startup luxury brand Genesis. The GV60 is built upon a dedicated electric E-GMP platform with an 800 volt architecture, meaning it was built as an EV from the ground up.

The GV60 was launched in 2022 in the US market as a 2023 model. The vehicle is available in Advanced or and higher-end Performance trims, and all GV60s in America come standard with dual motor all wheel drive and a 77.4 kWh battery capacity. The Advanced trim GV60 has a 74 kW front and 160 kW rear motors (314 hp), while the Performance model has dual 160 kW motors, good for 429 horsepower. Estimated range for the Advanced and Performance trims is at 248 and 235 miles, respectively.

The charging port on the Genesis GV60 features a standard Type 2/CCS connector, compatible with most public charging networks and home chargers. The onboard hardware is capable of charging at 11 kW at home on Level 2 alternating current. See below our list of recommended home chargers for the Genesis GV60.

Wallbox Pulsar Plus

Wallbox Pulsar Plus for Genesis GV60

The Wallbox Pulsar Plus is our top pick for a charger with a compact and attractive design at just 7.8″ x 7.9″ x 3.9″ in dimensions.

Available in 40 and 48 amp versions, the Pulsar Plus can charge up to 8 times faster than Level 1 (120v) charging. Like the Blink Charger, it features a 25 foot long cable. The 48 amp version is able to deliver up to 11.5 kW of power, cutting down charge times to just a few hours rather than overnight for GV60 drivers.

Wallbox also works great for households with multiple EVs that need to be charged simultaneously. Two or more Wallbox chargers on the same circuit can communicate between each other and balance the available household power between chargers. See full review.

Emporia Smart Level 2 EV Charger

Emporia Level 2 Charger for Genesis GV60

The Emporia home EV charger is easy to recommend if you already have other Emporia energy products in your home, as the app can control a variety of Emporia hardware. But the EV charger is a competitive product in its own right. While cheaper than many competitors on the market, Emporia does not cut corners where it matters most in day to day usage.

We really liked the high power output (48 amps hardwired, 40 amps over NEMA 14-50), and the highly durable single piece metal charge cord holder.

Frequently Asked Questions about charging the GV60

How much does it cost to charge the Genesis GV60 at home?

With a typical rate of 13 cents per kiloWatt hour and assuming 95% efficiency during charging, it would cost approximately $10.59 to fully recharge the GV60. Keep in mind that it would be very rare to need a zero to 100% charger.

Does the Genesis GV60 have a heat pump?

Yes, a heat pump is standard equipment in the US on the GV60. This is great news for customers living in colder states, as more winter range can be retained. 

What are the wheel and tire sizes available with the GV60?

The lower trim GV60s come with 19-inch wheels and 235/55R19 tires, with an option to upgrade to 20-inch wheels and wider 255/45R20 tires. (the 255 indicates tire width in millimetres) The GV60 Performance trim comes standard with 21-inch wheels and 255/40R21 tires. Wider tires and larger diameter wheels typically give up a little bit of range for sportier road feel and appearance.

Does the Genesis GV60 come with free charging?

Yes, Genesis has announced a partnership with the Electrify America network in the United States, giving new GV60 owners 3 years of unlimited 30 minute charging sessions. Check with your dealer for details and eligibility.
Level 3 fast public chargers are great for road trips, but for everyday usage we recommend owners install a home charging station to help preserve battery capacity and enjoy the convenience of having a charged battery each morning.
