Someone was able to get some photos of Genesis' upcoming EV crossover doing some testing in Death Valley. Smart move by Genesis to use a Kia Niro body to try and cover it, but the modified body really gives it away.

From the article motor1 put together, it's possible that this EV crossover could use a similar platform to the G70.
As with that test vehicle, this Niro’s wheelbase is significantly altered, and the track is much wider as well. This suggests the Genesis model will slot beneath the GV80 – in fact, the platform could be a derivative of the G70 sedan.

Added width out back as indicated by the wheels has me wondering what rear cargo/passenger room is like.

Could the GV70 be a three-row?

If I had to guess, the GV70 would be a two-row SUV and the GV80 would have three rows.

sporty 2nd-row captain seats in the GV70 would be great but optional, i'll be surprised if its standard
If Genesis did that it would be really cool and unique. I could see it as an option if the GV70 has three rows. I don't know if they'd do that in a two row SUV.

It can be done to a two-row SUV, one that's purely focused on sport but I bet Genesis was more practicality.

I think it's more likely that we see that as an option after its initial release. I'd be surprised if they did that right out of the gate.

Unfortunately Genesis said they need sales volume.
Sedans didn't do it so SUV's have to rescue their bottom line. At least for now till things improve.

However... I might be wrong. Maybe they'll push harder?

I do have a feeling the SUVs will take priority over the sedans especially since that's the way the market is going. I hope it rescues their bottom line like you said so they can do some cool stuff with the sedans.
