Genesis has unveiled its electric Essentia concept at the New York motor show.

The all-electric, high-performance concept provides a vision of future Genesis product performance and technology.

“We understand our obligation as a luxury car manufacturer to create objects of desire, sparking passion and inspiration by emphasising a culture while exceeding expectations in terms of technology and connectivity, bringing our outside world seamlessly to the inside of the vehicle,” Global Head of the Genesis Brand, Manfred Fitzgerald, said.

“This is what the Genesis Essentia Concept is all about, and we are thrilled to introduce our interpretation of an all-electric, two-door Gran Turismo here in New York.”

Essentia is the brand’s first battery electric vehicle and features a lightweight carbon-fibre monocoque, a robust, multi-motor electric powertrain, and a custom-tailored interior.

It is the brand’s initial concept for a true GT car and challenges the status quo as the ultimate manifestation of Genesis design and engineering.

As a capable, thrilling sports car designed to counter the complexities of a modern lifestyle, Genesis says Essentia offers serenity, clarity, and beauty.

“The Genesis Essentia concept defines our vision for an electric Gran Turismo that integrates Athletic Elegance and Genesis DNA as defining parameters,” Head of Design, Luc Donckerwolke, said.

“A Gran Turismo typology highlights our ambition as a luxurious car brand for the connoisseurs and it is the perfect base to project our DNA in the future.”
