The novelty, which is still in the status of a concept, will be fully declassified on March 31st.
Genesis has shared a video teaser for a new concept electric car that will debut in South Korea on the last day of March. The novelty is an electric coupe, which will be the harbinger of the production model.
According to preliminary data, the coupe is based on the E-GMP (Electric-Global Modular Platform) platform, developed for Hyundai, Kia and Genesis electric cars. It offers several configuration options: one electric motor is installed as standard on the rear axle, and for four-wheel drive vehicles there is a second electric motor at the front.
The Genesis coupe will most likely receive a twin-engine installation and will be unified with the Ioniq 6 sedan: two electric motors produce a total of 306 horsepower, and they are powered by a 72.6 kilowatt-hour battery. On a single charge, the electric car will be able to drive about 500 kilometers on the WLTP cycle.
The video demonstrates some of the design features of the novelty. For example, it will receive signature Genesis Quad Lights on the sides and an unusual transmission selector in the form of a spinning ball.
Genesis previously patented several names for electrical modifications to existing models: the G70e, G80e, G90e, GV70e, GV80e, and GV90e – all of which have an “e” at the end, which indicates an electric powertrain. However, the coupe is likely to have a different designation.
