Hyundai's luxury brand opens US orders for its EV

Genesis, the luxury division of Hyundai Motor Group, started taking orders on Tuesday in the United States for its first electric vehicle GV60.

Hyundai's deluxe brand introduced the GV60 model at a starting price of $58,890, which comes with three years of free 30-minute charging sessions at Electrify America stations. The first Genesis EV model will allow the drivers to unlock the vehicle doors by using a facial recognition feature called Face Connect.

The South Korean carmaker announced in April that its EV sales nearly doubled over the past year.
