The Genesis Electrified GV70 is the latest EV from Hyundai's luxury brand. Built on the same platform as the gas-powered version, the all-electric model has an EPA estimated 236 mile range, and shares many of the same luxurious touches of the Electric G80. But with a starting price over $60,000 can the electric GV70 take on competitors like the Tesla Model Y, Audi Q4 e-tron, Mercedes-Benz EQB, and even its own GV60 EV sibling? We also discuss whether a viewer's persistent flat spots on a set of Goodyear Assurance WeatherReady tires might be a sign of manufacturer defect.
