The concept car is said to represent the company’s Athletic Elegance design philosophy, but in a “more progressive way.”
The thing to underline is that the Genesis X Speedium Coupe Concept is not touted as a preview of the upcoming sporty EV model.
The Genesis X Speedium Coupe has an enclosed grille, with the Genesis shield framed by LEDs.
Comes with Two Lines lighting and a minimalist design approach for the whole vehicle.
The name Speedium comes from the name of the motor racing circuit in Inje City, South Korea, representing the company’s belief that “the emotional value of driving will remain strong in the era of electrification.”
“This car is an ‘open the door’ moment in Genesis’ journey towards the company’s future EV design,” said Luc Donckerwolke, Genesis Chief Creative Officer.
“This is not a showcar, but rather a look at our design process as we explored ideas for the next wave of EVs, which incorporate the Genesis DNA,” he added.
The introduction of the concept car coincides with the announcement that the electrified Genesis GV70 will be the company’s first electric vehicle to be produced in the United States.
