If you're patiently waiting for your GV80, production for US models starts next week.

"The Genesis GV 80's exports to North America have come into view. With GV 80 exports being produced next week, it is noteworthy whether the Genesis brand could lead to a rebound in US earnings.

According to the industry on the 11th, Hyundai Motor Company will start making the Genesis GV 80 export volume at the 2nd Ulsan factory on the 14th . The production volume is about 2000 units per month. Most of these go to North America. As production begins in earnest, shipments of GV 80 are expected in the US from fall ."

2000 per month with most coming to North America means there should be many GV80 available soon. Great news.

Yup! I guess it really depends mostly on how many they need to put on a ship, and how long it takes a ship to get here.

Agreed. At that rate it'll take a long time to fill those orders.

It takes about 6 weeks to ship to North America. At this rate we won’t see the first car until mid November. :(

Received txt msg from my dealer this morning - "gv80's are due to arrive first week or so of October" I asked if VIN number was available on my pre-order (just to feel a bit more confident in what he was telling me). Hopefully update is true. Would be great news! ... will update if VIN is provided (y)

Thanks for sharing that and please keep us posted on the VIN. Are GV80 demo's at any Genesis showrooms near you?

This GV80 was at a Genesis outlet last week.

Thanks for question. Yes, will confirm if/when VIN is provided. Have not yet seen or aware of any GV80 demo's available for viewing at showrooms near me.

6 weeks possibly to make its way to Canada. Shipping time from South Korea to Port Newark NJ is about 30 days.

Aren’t there over 10,000 pre-orders in US? At only 2000/mo it will take 5 months to fill?
I'm wondering if the same plant assembling the GV80 is also assembling the G80? I've heard there's about a 14,000 G80/GV80 combination of ordered vehicles in the pipeline. If only 1 factory is making both vehicles it'll take forever to get them here at a rate of 2,000 per month. You also have to add the shipping time of about 30 days to North America.

I ordered my GV80 through Genesis of South Brunswick, NJ. That being said I called Genesis of Denville, NJ yesterday because they're actually showing inventory of the GV80 on their website so I called them. The reality is they reassured me they don't have any yet but they are actually under production at this point. The salesperson said realistically (if there's not another large outbreak of COVID-19) they should have inventory at their dealership before Thanksgiving with the outside chance as early as October but she felt more confident it would be in November, before Thanksgiving. She also said that the GV80 is being manufactured first and the G80 to be manufactured a little later on.

These sales people do not keep up on the production news about this vehicle until they are told by their managers what is going on. That is usually a week or two behind what is already public information. I doubt they will have any inventory to purchase off the lot until next summer at the earliest. They're going to have a advertising issue because that's when the next year's cars start to have a release date. Cadillac usually releases their new vehicles in August.

While I don't really trust sales people either, this sounds quite realistic and in line with what we've been hearing in corporate press releases.

Funny that they show inventory before they even have it. It must be a tactic they use...

Yes, it's definitely a sales tactic. I was enough to get me to call them even though I put a deposit down at a different dealership...

I stopped by my Genesis dealer after work today. My salesperson showed me on her computer that some GV80's have been built that are destined for the US. They are ones that people have put deposits on, not for the lot. She felt fairly confident that mine would arrive before Thanksgiving. Without mentioning a name she stated a North American sales executive from Genesis stated November will be the month they arrive with an outside chance it may go over to early December. Also verified is that the GV80 is a priority over the G80 in terms of production until they catch up on orders for the GV80. All good news I think, time flies and November will be here before you know it.
