  • Sales are up 115 per cent in 2021 compared to the same period last year
  • Online customer pre-orders for the all-new GV70 available as of March 5

MARKHAM, Ontario, March 3, 2021 – Genesis Motors Canada has had an incredibly strong start to the year with sales already up 115 per cent in the first two months of 2021 compared to the same period in 2020.


This success is attributed to the rapid growth of the brand’s product portfolio and distributor network. The first-ever Genesis SUV, GV80, has been well received by Canadians and now represents more than half of all sales. Other models are also seeing impressive growth, with the redesigned G80 up 69 per cent in 2021 compared to last year. Having expanded its network in 2020 to include 30 distributors nationwide, Genesis now offers its products and unique purchase and ownership experience in a wide range of markets spanning from Victoria to St. John’s.


“It’s a remarkable accomplishment for a brand to double sales, especially during a pandemic. These results further exemplify the strength of our brand and we are pleased to welcome more Canadians into the Genesis family,” said Richard Trevisan, Brand Director of Genesis Motors Canada. “We will continue to build on this momentum as we prepare for the launch of the redesigned G70 and all-new compact SUV, GV70. This is only the start to what I am sure will be an exceptional year for the Genesis brand.”


Genesis sales will continue to significantly increase in 2021 with the launch of exciting new products including Genesis’ first compact SUV, GV70, which will be available for customer pre-order as of March 5. This unique functionality allows customers to reserve and complete the purchase of their vehicle online in the comfort of their homes, and is available for all vehicles in Genesis’ portfolio.


The Genesis network will also continue to evolve in 2021 as construction begins on new Genesis Retail Experience Centres, which will provide consumers with an elevated omni-channel experience and new way to interact with the brand.


Having launched in Canada only four years ago, Genesis has quickly established itself as a top automotive brand and continues to receive praise for its award-winning products and unique purchase and ownership experience.


Genesis has been on a winning streak in 2021, having already won major awards for every product in its lineup. Most recently, G80 and GV80 were named winners in their respective categories at the Canadian Car and Canadian Utility Vehicle of the Year awards. The brand has also won four 2021 Awards including Best Overall Car for G70, and G80 has won the J.D. Power 2021 Canada ALG Residual Value Award.
