2021/22 Genesis EV: Genesis's 1st electric car


  

Of course, since both Hyundai and Kia have brand new EVs coming out, it is logical for Genesis to get one as well.

Upfront, even under camouflage, you can see the Genesis headlights.

But from the side, this looks a lot like the Kia version (lower photo) I posted a while ago. Especially the A-Pillar. (Although the roof seems a bit more curved.

 Hyundai and Kia models are never visually clones. So I am sure the Genesis version will be quite different from its cousins.

Interesting that, so far, none of these seem to have a true SUV design. The Hyundai 45 looks like a big hatchback, slightly raised. The Kia seems to be a slick wagon style and the Genesis could end up looking more like one of these "4 door coupe".

Even under the camo it looks cheap. I thought Tesla had taught the industry that EVs don't have to look dorky.

By dorky do you mean the model y which (Stylistically) is nothing more than a bloated model 3 with worse proportions ? Yeah, Tesla has given the industry a good idea on how to make crossovers look like humpback whales...

Keep the negative comments tucked under your tongue. I really hope Hyundai/Kia/Genesis make some nice looking electric models.

I just found out that Hyundai just made the "Ioniq " name seperate brand now.

Now there are four of them: Hyundai, Kia, Genesis and Ioniq
Ioniq will be a direct Telsa Rival which will be EVs only.

Fuck off, Hyundai salesman.

I don't see how that's a Genesis. While they do look similar, they aren't the same car. The A pillar not he bottom car ends above the front wheel arch on the bottom car, but slightly behind on the top car. I wish these spy photographers would take a pic of the giant white sticker that Hyundai puts on the rear window of every prototype. It gives you info on the car right there...

LOL at the Elon comment! I currently drive an IONIQ PHEV and I'm dying to get into a Hyundai EV on a dedicated platform with a dual motor setup! I've been unbelievably impressed with my little plug in model and how well built it is and how it has held up after 30k hard NYC miles. Please Hyundai, bring us more EVs!!!!! By the way, I would never buy a Tesla in current times, sure, it's trendy but spend about 5 minutes on youtube watching videos on brand new Teslas with major issues. Maybe in ten years they'll sort out their growing pains but right now, I'll stick with Hyundai.
