Would you be interested in the GV70 if it were a rear wheel drive platform with the option of a AWD driveline? I would, but would want a e-locker rear diff.
How about a EV70 without any ICE components at all? This vehicle's styling with a dual motor AWD, or single motor front wheel drive would be an interesting alternative to the offering we now have and without a doubt it would make for the best looking EV among the other EV offerings. You know an all electric model is coming sooner or later, when is the only question.

Personally I wouldn't be interested in a RWD because I need as much traction as I can for the winter. As for the electric one, Genesis is currently working on one now. I'm curious to see what they come up with but it would come down to the price and range for me to consider getting one.

Being in Northern Vermont, I've never considered RWD, so if I got a gv70 RWD for free, I'd trade it in for awd.

Thats way beyond my scope! Never heard of that till just now.
In the not too long ago past some auto manufacturers were putting AWD systems in vehicles and did not provide a way to service them.(no drain port for the PTU) There is very little lube in these units and it needs to be changed out at least @ 50K and sooner is better. If the unit is designed to be non-serviceable it will fail and is very expensive to replace as you can imagine.

For my SUVs I always go AWD over RWD or FWD. Do you think the GV70 and GV80 are going to deal with those issues?

That certainly good to know-I learned something new-and very important....and something to look out for..for me 50k will be probably 4 years out.

I am not that familiar with the Hyundai corporate design philosophy regarding their approach to the PTU design in all of their other corporate AWD platforms. I would suspect if the drain plug is a design choice in their other AWD vehicles it should be present in the Genesis vehicles as well, but it would be good to know that for sure.
