Genesis Concept Called Mint Unveiled Ahead of New York Auto Show

Genesis has a new concept, it’s called Mint, and it defines how the Korean luxury automaker sees future urban luxury.

Unveiled just a few minutes ago as we inch closer to the official opening of the 2019 New York Auto Show, the Genesis concept rumored for the last few weeks is finally called Mint. It’s a luxury electric vehicle designed for urban environnements. Looking at the pictures, it’s safe to say nobody expected Genesis to unveils this when they teased an upcoming electric vehicle a few weeks ago.

The Genesis Mint Concept isn’t ugly or overly quircky, it’s actually quite nice. The wheels, in particular, would do well on any production performance car including a high-end version of the Genesis G70. We like the light forest green paint paired with the bronze brake calipers and again find that this combo would work very well on a production Genesis.

The front is highlighted by a huge Genesis logo with sharp vertical headlights connected an LED strip. Two vertical doors in the back allow access to the luggage compartment while the front seats are reached through conventional doors with a touchpad for a handle. The Genesis Mint Concept is a two-seater.

The dashboard is pure concept with its lack of any visible center console. Instead, the steering wheel has rounded touch pads on each side that provide access to different menus. The center of the steering wheel is both an instrument cluster and a center screen.

Genesis spent most of their time talking about the interior and not so much about the powertrain. All we know is that it’s electric, it has 200 miles of range, and it has a 350-kW charging capacity.
