The all-electric, high-performance concept elevates and reimagines 'Athletic Elegance'
Essentia is the first Genesis concept for a true GT car and the first battery-electric vehicle. It challenges the status quo as the ultimate manifestation of Genesis design and engineering.
Inspired by iconic Gran Turismo proportions, a long bonnet and a swept-back cabin define Essentia. The carbon fibre body, finished in Stardust Gray Metallic, intentionally positions Essentia low to the ground, to make the graceful silhouette instantly recognisable.
The side profile of Essentia is dominated by the distinctive parabolic line that provides visual structure to the body while also emphasising its overall length.
The rear of Essentia is defined by an aerodynamic cut-off surface that houses the flush rear Quad Lamps and emphasises the muscles of the rear haunch.
The front fascia involves the Genesis Crest Grille to highlight efficiency and aerodynamics, with intakes on each side to streamline airflow around the corners.
Designed to be thoroughly connected to the world around it, while providing its occupants a virtual escape, the interior of Essentia uses a mix of materials influenced by high fashion and classic colour combinations.
To maximise the connection between car and driver, cognac leather seats with chevron quilting hold the driver and passengers in true cockpit fashion.
The 8-inch widescreen display with piano black surround gives a tailored experience for both the driver and the front seat passenger. The driver is displayed only the essential information they need.
Essentia features a lightweight carbon fibre monocoque, a robust, multi-monitor electric powertrain, and a custom-tailored interior.
