New Genesis X Concept, named Genesis X Convertible, completes trilogy
Genesis has unveiled a new X-series concept vehicle, completing the trilogy that began with the Genesis X Concept and Genesis X Speedium Coupe Concept. Called the Genesis X Convertible, and as the name suggests, it is an all-electric convertible sedan.
The X Convertible shares the same architecture and electric powertrain as the two X concepts mentioned above. Genesis Creative Director Luc Donckerwolke said:
“It is normal Genesis development to enhance the athletic and emotional facet of our design philosophy by creating an emotional trilogy: the X family.
Innovation is the catalyst to engage more with the environment around us. We are in the process of making Genesis a company that delivers products that customers enjoy.
The highlight of the new concept is its fold-down hardtop, which also creates a sense of openness even when closed. According to the brand, the interior design is inspired by Korean roof architecture, a nod to the brand’s origins.
In addition to its futuristic design, with its sharp lines and clean front end, the Genesis X Convertible is also striking inside, with an asymmetrical four-seat layout centred on the driver and a large wrap-around screen. Donckerwolke, added:
“Genesis began its journey producing sedans aimed primarily at business users. As we created a new and differentiated design DNA, we increased the emotional appeal by applying this DNA to the SUV typology.
Now, electric powertrains have provided us with the perfect backdrop to enjoy nature and have pushed the brand to create vehicles with even greater emotional resonance.”
Inside, the main interior colour is Giwa Navy, named after the ‘Giwa’, the roof tiles of Korean houses. Meanwhile, ‘Dancheong Orange’, named after the traditional decorative colours of Korean wooden buildings, serves as an accent colour. On the exterior, the vehicle is pearly white, representing the white cranes that represent nobility and sanctity in Korea.
