Genesis has uncovered an electric convertible concept called the X Convertible, showcasing its commitment to sustainable luxury car ownership. The four-seater convertible is last in the trio of concepts by Genesis that showcases the manufacturer’s intent on luxury, sustainability and premium technology.
The X Convertible follows the two-door coupe X concept from 2021 and the superior performance X Speedium concept that was uncovered this April.
Luc Donckerwolke, chief creative officer for the Genesis X Convertible, said “It is the normal development to increase the athletic and emotional facet of our design philosophy by creating an emotional trilogy: the X family. Electric powertrains have given us the perfect scenario in which to enjoy nature, which is something convertibles do better than any other vehicle.”
He added, “with the Genesis X Convertible, we have built upon the stunning success of the X Concept and X Speedium Coupe to further propel the brand’s mission to create vehicles with even greater emotional resonance.”
Hyundai’s luxury division says the X Convertible idea denotes the most recent move toward its ‘Athletic Elegance’ design language. It includes short shades, long cap and a long wheelbase, portrayed by Genesis as a “classic ‘Coke bottle’ shape” when seen from a higher place.
The X Convertible’s front end has a special quad-LED light design with design motivation taken from Genesis most memorable internal combustion models. At the back, it’s fitted with a similar quad tail-lights as the X Speedium Coupe and the X Concept, while the rear end configuration is motivated by the wings and peak of the Genesis logo.
As detailed back in 2019 that Genesis was hoping to enter the Indian market, with being a SUV first model likely. Despite the fact that Genesis at present has two SUVs on special around the world – the GV80 and GV70 – it isn’t yet realized which will come to India first.
