Notably, the safety assessment result gained by Genesis GV60 is similar to its E-GMP-based cousins, including Hyundai Ioniq 5 and Kia EV6. The results also matched with Genesis GV70 and Genesis GV80 models tested last year.
In addition, the Adult Occupant and Child Occupant protection ratings of the South Korean premium BEV are 89% and 87%, respectively. On the other hand, it is 88% for Safety Assist. Although it received a 63% in its protection of vulnerable road users, there remains some space for improvement.
Interestingly, the scores for the Hyundai Ioniq 5 and Kia EV6 were similar. This clearly indicates that the results are not mainly based on the implementation by one of the brands but more on the capabilities of the E-GMP platform.
In the upcoming years, a few more E-GMP models are anticipated to join the three versions currently offered in South Korea, Europe, and the US.
For reference, here is the 2022 Genesis GV60 Euro NCAP test results as reported by InsideEVs:
