Range figures don't mean much without some reference to the particular test or evaluation standard. eg a WLTP figure will typically be around 20-30% higher than the US EPA figure. And then the manufacturer's own figures could be different again, if they use their own test regime. Hyundai are rumoured to be relatively conservative in their own figures, but probably still higher than EPA estimates. Then actual real-world figures (ie as opposed to standardised test figures) won't become clear until testers have the opportunity to drive actual examples under different road and weather conditions, over different speed profiles etc.

EV Database which I usually find to be a reasonably good guide to real-world range suggests overall ranges of 240/230/220 miles for the Premium/sport/Sport Plus models respectively, but as yet these can only be initial estimates of course. If you then dig into the details for each model, for the Sport model as an example it shows:

City = 230 miles; Highway = 165; Combined/Mixed = 195 (COLD weather performance)

City = 335 miles; Highway = 210; Combined/Mixed = 265 (MILD weather performance)

So, as ever with EVs (and indeed fossil cars too), the range depends on many factors.

I have read that the GV60 RWD gets 321 miles of range in some reports, and 280 miles of range in other reports. Anyone happen to know which one is right?
I have a GV80 AWD with the 300 horsepower 2.5T 4 cylinder. Just drove across the country from Phoenix to Jacksonville Florida. Range showing each time I filled up was 450-470 miles.
I can confirm it’s accurate as I drove 410 miles once and at the gas station I still was showing 50 miles left to empty. 20 gallon tank and it did say I was averaging highway only. Worst at 25.5 and best at 27.4 mpg. Driving at 75-82 mph. Very happy. City only I get 20-22mpg.
This engine is fast and very quiet and no need for the 375hp 6 cylinder. Very happy. And I use regular gas which is allowed. Just buy Top Tier gas.

Just an added note. Driving was done in summer weather of 75-85F. Winter will drop mileage for sure. I was still in 22-24 mpg in cold weather. 32F and lower on the highway
