Genesis will have its first crossover in early 2020

We’ve been watching Genesis evolve over the last two years or so with much enthusiasm. One of the reasons is because we know a guy working his butt off to make things happen in Canada and we love his passion and energy.

The other reason is because the product is so far living up to and surpassing expectations. The G90’s nice and the G80’s great but it’s the G70 that’s got us truly excited. As far as we’re concerned, it’s on par or nearly with its German rivals, and crushes everything from Japan and the US.

Despite the praise, sales are way down at Genesis at the moment but according to them, this is the calm before what they hope to be a storm of Genesii (?) that should begin in late 2019 or early 2020.

The first of the onslaught will be the production version of the GV80 crossover concept that was revealed at the 2017 edition of the New York auto show. A smaller GV70 is expected a year later and at some point, a coupe will join the ranks.

We have high hopes for the brand – nothing is more difficult than launching a new luxury car company in an already crowded luxury car market.
