Watch Genesis Electrified G80 Battery Pack Get Opened Up

The Genesis Electrified G80 is Genesis’ first all-electric model, but unlike the Genesis GV60, it is not based on the Hyundai Motor Group’s E-GMP platform.

Today, we will take a look at the battery pack of the Electrified G80, opened by Power BASTRO in South Korea. The video is not entirely new, as it was released in late 2021, but it’s still quite interesting because it seems that some of the components are highly related to the E-GMP.

The battery pack in the Genesis Electrified G80 is 87.2 kWh, which is almost 10 kWh more than in the currently available top version of E-GMP models (77.4 kWh). The use of a bigger battery with a higher capacity has its justification, as the car itself is bigger and less efficient. Genesis estimates that its range is about 427 km (265 miles).

Hyundai Motor Group’s BEVs:

  • Hyundai Ioniq 5 (E-GMP)
    – 58.0 kWh battery: 24 modules (2P 6S), 288 cells
    – 72.6 kWh battery: 30 modules (2P 6S), 360 cells
    (used initially and later changed to 77.4 kWh)
    – 77.4 kWh battery: 32 modules (2P 6S), 384 cells
  • Kia EV6 (E-GMP)
    – 58.0 kWh battery: 24 modules (2P 6S), 288 cells
    – 77.4 kWh battery: 32 modules (2P 6S), 384 cells
  • Genesis Electrified G80
    – 87.2 kWh battery: 36 modules (3P 4S), 432 cells
  • Genesis GV60 (E-GMP)
    – 77.4 kWh battery: 32 modules (2P 6S), 384 cells
  • Genesis Electrified GV70
    – 77.4 kWh battery
  • E-GMP modules:
    – 12 lithium-ion pouch cells per module
    – over 2.4 kWh per module
    – over 200 Wh per cell

As we can see in the videos below, the Genesis Electrified G80’s battery is not entirely flat, like the E-GMP pack in the Hyundai Ioniq 5 opened in a previous video. This is because the pack had to fit into the structure of the conventional G80.

The battery is much wider and includes a total of 36 modules in four rows (4×9). Each module has 12 cells (2P 6S each) for a total of 432 lithium-ion cells. A single module appears to have over 2.4 kWh, just like in E-GMP (the shape is also similar), although E-GMP units are 3P 4S.

In the future, the company intends to introduce a new solution, called the Integrated Modular Architecture (IMA), which will consist of 9 standardized battery packs (for all models of all brands) with a cell-to-pack approach.

Genesis Electrified G80 specs:

  • over 500 km (311 miles) according to NEDC
    about 427 km (265 miles) based on the Korean EV certification system
    efficiency is 4.3 km/kWh when equipped with 19-inch wheel
  • 87.2 kWh battery
  • 0 to 60 mph (96 km/h) in 4.9 seconds
    (based on results from Genesis R&D Center testing in sport mode)
  • dual motor all-wheel drive (with DAS)
    “Disconnector Actuator System (DAS) can also connect or disconnect motor and drive shaft based on different driving conditions, enabling the vehicle to switch between RWD and AWD to reduce unnecessary power loss and increase efficiency”
  • system output: 272 kW (136 kW front and 136 kW rear) and 700 Nm of torque
  • fast charging: 10-80% in 22 minutes (at 800 V, high-power charger)
  • Vehicle to Load (V2L) capability up to 3.6 kW
