Genesis is expanding the availability of its all-electric models. On Tuesday, the South Korean luxury brand announced its EVs will be offered in 10 additional states, bringing the total to 33.
Drivers in Arkansas, Hawaii, Kentucky, Michigan, Missouri, Nebraska, New Hampshire, Ohio, Oklahoma and Tennessee will now be able to locally purchase a new GV60 or electric versions of the GV70 SUV and G80 sedan. Additionally, two more stand-alone retailers are opening their doors, one in California and another in Louisiana. In total, there are nine dedicated Genesis dealerships in the US.
In a release shared by the automaker, Claudia Marquez, chief operating officer of Genesis Motor North America said, “Adding 10 more states where customers can discover our award-winning lineup of electric vehicles gives us coverage across a majority of the U.S.,” though the company is still falls short of selling these vehicles in all 50 states of the Union. “We are also excited to announce the completion of two more stand-alone retail facilities, Genesis of South Bay and Genesis of Baton Rouge,” she added, “allowing even more customers to discover the Genesis brand in a dedicated showroom for a tailored purchase and owner experience.”
In total, the GV60, Electrified GV70 and Electrified G80 are available at select retailers in 33 states. This includes Arizona, Arkansas, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Florida, Georgia, Hawaii, Illinois, Indiana, Louisiana, Maryland, Massachusetts, Kentucky, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, Nevada, New Hampshire, Ohio, Oklahoma, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Virginia, Washington, and Wisconsin.
For the Genesis brand, this announcement is a major step forward. Earlier in the year, for example, the automaker’s electric vehicles were only offered in 15 states, fewer than half as many as they’re available in today. This growth is a sign of major progress for Genesis.
