EVs could cost less than dinosaur-juice powered cars by the end of this year (2023)

Jack Ewing of The New York Times, makes the case that increased competition, government incentives, and falling prices for lithium and other battery materials are making electric vehicles more affordable, and could soon be on a par with more internal combustion (ICE) cars. Perhaps even by the end of 2023.

The battery-powered version of GM’s Equinox crossover, for example, will start around $30,000 when it arrives this fall, the carmaker has said. That is $3,400 more than the least expensive gasoline-fueled Equinox. But factoring in government incentives, the electric Equinox should be cheaper. Like all electric vehicles, the car will need less maintenance, and the electricity to power it will cost less than the gasoline used by its combustion engine equivalent.

The article also makes the point that the EV will require less maintenance, and “the electricity to power it will cost less than the gasoline used by its combustion engine equivalent.”

2023 Genesis GV60 Performance AWD “is one of the very best electric vehicles currently on sale”

The Genesis GV60 shares its platform with the award winning Hyundai Ioniq 5 and Kia EV6. However it feels like a completely different car and Australia’s Carscoops claims it “is one of the very best electric vehicles currently on sale.”

Underpinning the GV60 is Hyundai’s Electric-Global Module Platform (E-GMP) which brings with it a flat floor and supports two powertrain configurations in Australia. Sitting at the base of the range is the GV60 AWD which features a 74 kW (99 hp) electric motor at the front axle and a 160 kW (214 hp) motor at the rear axle, resulting in a combined 234 kW (314 hp) and 605 Nm (446 lb-ft) of torque.

During the Christmas and New Year period, we had the chance to test and live with the flagship GV60 Performance AWD. This variant rocks a 180 kW (241 hp) motor at the front and a 180 kW (241 hp) motor at the rear, good for 360 kW (483 hp) and 700 Nm (516 lb-ft) of torque in Boost Mode or 320 kW (429 hp) and 605 Nm (446 lb-ft) in every other driving mode.

Both GV60 models receive their juice from the same 77.4 kWh battery pack found in the floor. The standard AWD has a claimed WLTP range of 470 km (292 miles) while the Performance AWD has a WLTP range of 466 km (289 miles).

It’s not very often that we test a car with as few flaws as the Genesis GV60 Performance AWD.
