The Mint Concept is a new class of vehicle: the all-electric luxury car for the city.
Highly manouverable and exhilarating to drive. Mint is a lightweight city car, intelligently reimagined for the needs of modern urbanites.
"Genesis embraces progressive design values, and the Mint Concept reinforces this commitment from a previously undiscovered perspective."
Manfred Fitzgerald - Executive Vice President (2019)
The Mint Concept beautifully stretches a three-box design to the corners with extremely short front and rear overhangs.
The signature Genesis motif is employed for efficient cooling and airflow circulation around the battery floor, and is also the basis for the aerodynamic wheel design.
To signal presence and stance, front and rear Quad Lamps stretch to the corners with their top light elements connecting to form wraparound bands of light.
Without a hot engine, here the Crest Grille is a closed sculptural element with just a slight opening for cooling the battery pack.
The signature Parabolic Line wraps around the body of the Mint Concept, with a sweeping uptick toward the concave rear.
Like a carefully furnished city apartment constrained by space requirements, the Mint Concept takes advantage of every cubic inch of its interior.
The automatic swivelling instrument panel and floating front bench make getting in and out is easier. The centre console with central control knob can be folded, turning the front bench into a settee.
Affording more knee room, the oblong steering wheel is surrounded by six copper information screens that do away with the need for a typical dashboard.
Lightweight textiles, soft leather, and mullion-free windows are used to create a luxurious, cozy space for two.
