A few weeks ago we were talking abouth a possible introduction of Genesis brand in the hatchback segment. In the recent years, the luxury auto industry has moved up but also down opening luxury cars availability to all the segments, sometimes without unexpected succes.
Looks like Genesis will showcase a new compact Electric Vehicle concept car at New York AutoShow according to the teaser revealed on their Instagram account. The profile remember me the Veloster.
Mercedes with the A-Class, BMW with the 1-Series and Audi with the A3 are the most remarkable ones, but other brands like Infiniti have tried the same formula with a different result. Infinite will cancel their A-Class derivative, the Q30 this year.
Also some of these brands had to associate to share cost, with other brands, like Mercedes did using Renault as small engines provider.
In the case of Genesis, this could be better in case of saving costs as being part of Hyundai Motor Group. Of course this render founded on Bobaedream is based on Hyundai’s i30/Elantra GT.
Genesis G30 could have an available range of petrol engines, from the 1.6 T-GDi to the 2.0 T-GDi could be fitted perfectly inside the hood of this hatchback.
