The company hasn't forgotten its stunning concepts.
The 2021 Genesis GV80 was just revealed, finally bringing an SUV to the company's lineup. This reveal will be hugely important to the luxury brand's success but it wasn't the only new model on display. During the live reveal for the GV80, Genesis teased six vehicles that will be launched before 2022. Some of these models are clearly identifiable but others remain a bit more of a mystery.
"I know you would like to see more light on this photo, but for now on we'll keep the mystery.", Genesis Chief Design Officer Luc Donckerwolke said, speaking on stage at the event. All of the vehicles shown in the teaser feature the new Genesis signature two-line headlight design.
Analyzing the photo, it appears the left-most model is the recently-revealed GV80. To the right of it appears to be the smaller GV70 SUV, which should hit the market in 2021. We expect Genesis to reveal the GV70 sometime later in 2020. Moving to the right once again, it looks like the two middle vehicles are the soon-to-be-revealed next-generation G80 sedan and the mid-cycle refresh for the G70. The G90 appears to have been left out of the family photo, which makes sense because its facelift was just recently announced.
Now we get to the two vehicles on the right, which are shrouded in complete mystery. The one second from right looks a lot like the Essentia Concept (pictured above), which could be the basis for a new Genesis Sports car. The car farthest to the right looks like the Genesis Mint Concept (pictured below) shown in New York, which would be the brand's first electric model. Genesis has said it plans to put all of its concepts into production and based on this teaser, it seems like the upstart marque was not lying.
