Genesis confirms Genesis X Convertible concept will become a reality
Although it was the last in a series of three minimalist concept cars, the Genesis X Convertible, an all-electric convertible sedan, garnered a great deal of attention. So much so that Genesis had no choice but to take it into production, confirming that the Genesis X Convertible will be a reality. This is not the first time we have seen something similar, as for example MG also announced that its MG Cyberster electric sports car would go into production.
The other two concept cars in the series, the Genesis X and Genesis X Speedium Coupe, paved the way for the Genesis X Convertible, which eventually took the public by storm. Prior to the open-top electric sedan, the Speedium coupe also attracted a lot of attention, and the brand even took it to Pebble Beach.
As far as is known so far, the Genesis X Convertible will enter the brand’s line-up as its new flagship. At the moment, it is unknown what the new name will be, as it is quite unlikely that it will keep the concept name. Also, it is expected that Genesis will retain the design highlights of the Genesis X Convertible in the production version, such as its illuminated front end.
This concept would position itself as an icon for the brand in its electrified era, joining an electric line-up that already includes the Genesis GV60, the first based on Hyundai’s E-GMP platform, and the Genesis G80, the electric version of its combustion-powered counterpart. Genesis plans to sell only electric vehicles from 2030 onwards.
We will keep an eye out for further information regarding the Genesis X Convertible’s entry into production, hoping that in the not too distant future the brand will provide more details about its technical specifications, as well as the production schedule and, of course, its price, which is quite likely to be quite high.
