Genesis lineup expanding to six models by 2021

The company will launch two crossovers followed by "more exciting" body styles.

Genesis has reaffirmed plans to quickly expand its lineup in the next few years.

The company is planning to offer six different models by 2021, including the brand's first crossover, Genesis global head Manfred Fitzgerald recently told Australia's GoAuto.

"We will have an extension of our product line-up until 2021, we will have six vehicles out there, of which we will have the first SUV which will be followed by a second SUV shortly thereafter," he said.

The Korean luxury marque is also working on "more exciting body styles" slated to arrive after 2021, though the company is not yet willing to disclose more details.

A close-to-production prototype of the GV80 crossover has already been caught by spy photographers. The second high-riding model, the GV70, will arrive in a smaller package. Rumors suggest the "more exciting" model will be a sporty coupe, perhaps with an electrified powertrain option.
