Genesis to show new EV concept in New York

Like the Essentia, the forthcoming concept will be another "show car."

Hyundai's Genesis brand has confirmed plans to debut a new all-electric concept in New York.

The company revealed the futuristic Essentia concept last year at the New York International Auto Show, showcasing a bold new design language in a sporty GT package. The Essentia is among many recent EV concepts that are unlikely to see production, however.

Speaking to RoadShow, Hyundai Group design chief Luc Donckerwolke promised to show yet another Genesis "electric show car" at the 2019 NYIAS.

The wording suggests the concept will be another design study. It will likely represent a different segment, such as crossovers, or perhaps bridge the gap between the wild Essentia and an actual production-bound nameplate.

The company will also show a refreshed G90 in New York, along with a Kia-badged show car. Additional details could slip in the weeks ahead of the show.
