Genesis Introduces the Genesis X Speedium Coupe

The X Speedium Coupe is another visual reminder that Genesis has some of the best designers in the business

  • It was revealed at the Genesis House New York.

  • The X Speedium Coupe is a look ahead at future EV designs from Genesis.

This concept is breathtakingly simple and complex at once. The Genesis X Speedium Coupe somehow blends power, precision, and beauty with impossible ease. Actually, anything is possible when Luc Donckerwolke, Genesis Chief Creative Officer and 2022 World Car Person of the Year, is at the project’s helm.

The Speedium Coupe is numerous car types all rolled into one and somehow it works. It features Genesis’ signature Two Lines lamps design. For the concept, they are now joined and carry across the full width of the fascia and encompass the shape of the Genesis Crest Grille. This should become the new face of Genesis as it moves towards an all-electric EV lineup by 2030.

“This car is an open-door moment in Genesis’ journey towards our future EV design,” said Donckerwolke. “This isn’t a show car — it’s a look into our design processes as we explore ideas for the next wave of EVs, one that incorporates Genesis’ DNA.”

The rear is somewhat more familiar with the signature twin taillights. They are positioned beneath what looks like an upswept ducktail spoiler that is in fact a careful blending between convex and concave surfaces.

“We are giving each design element space to breathe,” adds Donckerwolke. “It’s not about making the design elements compete with each other, but about orchestrating the elements so that they complement and respect one another.”

The name Speedium in inspired by the Korean racetrack in the city of Inje. Incidentally, the metallic emerald green shade is known as “Inje Green” in reference to the colour of the landscape where the track is located.
