First production EV from the brand confirmed for 2021.
Genesis, the South Korean luxury brand in Hyundai’s portfolio, has revealed its first-ever special edition model. The G90 Special Edition has made its official debut at the 2017 Seoul Motor Show. While being dubbed as a production model, the car is still not available for orders and will be used for promotional activities around the world.
The vehicle is based on the flagship trim level with 5.0-liter V8 engine and features bespoke colors never used before by Hyundai and Genesis. Each produced example will have two-paint color scheme, made to “express the personality and splendor of the car.”
Inside the cabin, the dashboard is covered with luxurious leather, wood, and aluminum decorations. Nubuck leather is applied to the seats, door cards, and armrests, creating “a luxurious yet comfortable and cozy atmosphere.”
"The Genesis brand is a lifestyle brand that not only introduces products that drive customers' desire to buy with sensational design, but also positively impacts customers' lives," Manfred Fitzgerald, General Strategy Manager of Genesis, commented during the premiere of the car. He also described the new limited edition sedan as a car that “reflects the design philosophy of Genesis - beauty that goes beyond the spiritual age.”
During the press conference of the brand in Seoul it was also announced the G70 sedan will be launched in the second half of this year. Also, plug-in hybrid variants will be added to the lineup in 2019, while in 2021 the first all-electric Genesis vehicle will be launched. Further details are expected soon.
In the U.S., the 2017 Genesis G90 is available with a starting price of $68,100 for a model equipped with a 3.3-liter biturbocharged V6 engine and rear-wheel drive. If you want the bigger 5.0-liter Tau V8, you’ll have to pay at least $69,700.
