Senior Vice President Manfred Fitzgerald had this to say:
“We will definitely go as Genesis brand down the road of alternative propulsions and it is very, very obvious that EV is definitely on the map. I think full electric cars will be the future in the auto industry.”
That promising future is still murky at this point, as Fitzgerald neglected to give any other information about the upcoming project. Even more interesting, though, alongside a luxurious, electric sedan, Genesis plans to roll out performance-oriented versions of its vehicles courtesy of Hyundai’s N department.
The Genesis cars won’t carry the N moniker, though, according to the performance division’s head, Albert Biermann. The first two models expected to get the hotted-up treatment should be the G70 and G80.
Expect more details on both reports closer to the end of the year.
