Premium Genesis electric crossover spotted in testsJanuary 28, 2021
Premium brand Genesis has begun testing its electric crossover. The noticed prototype received a lot of camouflage, but it does not hide the general design of the electric vehicle.
Genesis is preparing its electric novelty for the presentation, and the company does not want the world to see it ahead of time. The photographed prototype of the electric car is under the most dense camouflage, including special false panels that hide the real body shape and a “hump” on the back.
At the front, camouflage does not hide the rounded shape of the front of the vehicle Like other Genesis models, it features dual-level headlights. The circular holes in the disguise are likely to reveal the driver assistance system’s sensors. The hood blocks hide the exact shape, but the fenders appear to be positioned higher than the hood.
On the sides, the roofline curving downward and the upward-moving window line give the rear a teardrop shape. The rest is still under camouflage, hiding the rear design. The rims have a visually intriguing design, in which the spokes are intertwined to form a star shape.
At the rear, horizontally split taillights are visible through camouflage.
Genesis already confirms that this electric crossover will debut in 2021. It will be built on the modular Electric-Global platform from Hyundai and Kia. The architecture supports batteries that can provide a range of up to 500 kilometers. In addition, the battery can be charged in five minutes to a level sufficient to cover 100 kilometers. The engines can develop up to 600 horsepower.
Hyundai Motor Group intends to offer 23 electric vehicles by 2025, including Genesis getting an all-electric version of its G80 sedan. Many of these models use the E-GMP platform, and the first production car to receive it is the Hyundai Ioniq 5, which will debut soon.
