It has been reported that the Genesis X Convertible Concept electric vehicle (EV), which was showcased at the 2022 LA Auto Show, will go into production. Apparently, Luc Donckerwolke, Genesis’ chief creative officer, made the announcement about the Convertible Concept going on sale at the brand’s annual meeting.
The Genesis X is a high-end luxury electric car and once in production will become the brand’s flagship zero emissions model. It was the third in the brand’s trilogy of concept electric vehicles. This concept model featured a neat folding hardtop roof that integrates transparent ‘moon roofs’ above the front occupants to provide an open feel even when closed.
The Genesis X Convertible Concept’s long bonnet, generous dash-to-axle, short front overhang, and long wheelbase are drawn rearwards towards the long deck, accentuating its stately yet relaxed styling. Genesis says the architecture and powertrain sets the perfect stage to communicate with nature, allowing users to enjoy the environment in a new way.
The Genesis X Convertible Concept is a sleek yet bold-looking car, which we love, and will no doubt be ready to take the more established names in the luxury market including Audi, Bentley, BMW and Mercedes. No official prices have been announced but the brand’s new flagship model is estimated to cost anywhere between $200,000 – $300,000.
Back in 2021, Genesis revealed images of the GV60 crossover, the brand’s first electric car. It was based on Hyundai’s dedicated Electric-Global Modular Platform (E-GMP), the same platform used on Hyundai’s popular IONIQ 5 electric car. The GV60 marked Genesis’ move towards electrification and has since been joined by the GV70 all-electric SUV.
