Genesis announces "something new" for the 2019 New York auto show

An electric concept is coming, but could we also see an SUV?

Genesis published a short teaser video on its official Facebook page to announce that something new is around the corner. Whatever the company is previewing, we'll see it in the metal next week during the 2019 New York auto show.

The 14-second long video shows traffic in Manhattan as it gradually zooms out. It doesn't give us a look at the car that Genesis will unveil next week in the Big Apple, but the company already confirmed it will travel to the event to unveil an electric concept. It might be a follow-up to the futuristic Essentia concept displayed during the 2018 edition of the show.

The updated G90 sedan will also make its North American debut in New York, but we've seen it already; it made its debut in South Korea in November 2018. Genesis could surprise by showing something else, too. The Hyundai-owned automaker is in the process of expanding its portfolio of models, and the next addition to its range will be an SUV inspired by the GV80 concept. The timing would certainly be spot-on; the design study made its debut at the 2017 New York auto show.

Stay tuned, Leftlane will cover the 2019 New York auto show live from the Javits Center starting on April 17.
