Hyundai and Kia have said in the past that they intended to commercialize 14 dedicated EVs by 2025. One of the first, based on a new platform, will be a Genesis concept car.
This year’s New York Auto Show will be a busy one for all members of the Hyundai Group. We’re already expecting the new 2020 Hyundai Sonata and latest compact SUV, the Venue. A Kia concept car is planned, or at the very least rumoured and then there’s Genesis.
After displaying the GV80 SUV concept in 2017 and the Essentia Coupe Concept last year, the 2019 NYIAS will be the Genesis EVs car’s first coming out party. This concept will be introduced alongside the new G90 sedan. According to Auto Express, Hyundai is developing a dedicated electric vehicle platform to be used by all brands in the group.
The platform should focus on B- (or compact) and C- (or nearly midsize) segment cars which could mean, if we allow ourselves to speculate, that Genesis may introduce a car below the beloved G70 Sedan in time.
