Genesis X Concept is a high-performance electric GT coupe concept car. Sustainable luxury is the future of Genesis.
The name 'Genesis X' is a combination of Genesis and the letter X, which symbolises a "Hidden Hero"
INTRODUCING THE GENESIS X CONCEPT.
"The Genesis X Concept can be described as the ultimate vision of Athletic Elegance, the inherent design language of Genesis. The signature Two Lines theme and sustainable luxury will be blueprints for the futuristic designs and state-of-the-art technologies that Genesis seeks to adopt in its future models."
Sang Yup Lee, Head of Genesis Global Design Center (2021)
COLOR OF THE GENESIS X CONCEPT.
The Genesis X Concept's Lençóis Blue colour is inspired by the lagoons of Maranhenses National Park in Brazil, where a lake forms only during the rainy season. It was developed to express the level of sustainable luxury that Genesis pursues.
The front of the Genesis X features a low, yet broad silhouette. The shield-shaped Crest Grille combined with the two-line headlamps, which continue through the wheel arch, create a strong front presence.
The side follows the traditional GT model design with a long hood and a short rear. The side's two-line lamps iconically lead to the headlights and taillights. The arcing Parabolic Line that runs along the side creates a dynamic and elegant impression.
The horseshoe rear design forms a simple and sleek curve, while the contours of the body create a strong, yet sophisticated presence.
The two-lined Quad Lamps are the hallmark of our iconic light design.
The tail lights, which feature our two-line design like the headlamps, evoke a sense of unity with the front, and create a sophisticated and sensual image with diffusers that accentuate the Two Lines aesthetic.
The subtle two-line detail in the rear glass exemplifies the Genesis design language.
The slick, slide-to-open charging door has no parting lines for a seamless aerodynamic look. The Two Lines design continues with the charging port lights.
To accentuate the imagery of a futuristic electric car, a three-dimensional G-Matrix pattern was applied to the sharp and intricate metal structure of the Genesis Crest Grille. The internal pattern of the grille has been painted in the same color as the exterior in order to create a sense of unity.
Genesis maximized the concept car's sporty sensibility by incorporating two-layered, turbine-type alloy wheels with five spokes. The brake calipers' lime accenting hints at the high-performance character of the Genesis X Concept.
Demonstrating our obsession with the details, even the digital side mirror represents the Two Line motif.
Inspired by the "Beauty of White Space", the Genesis X Concept's interior features a driver-oriented design with a cockpit that surrounds the driver with all operating systems and displays.
The application of the Two Lines design element to the slim and indirect air vents that surround passengers, as well as the side window molding, emphasizes the model’s Two Lines concept while providing a sense of unity with the exterior design.
The Genesis X Concept also features a dashboard that creates the sense that it is enveloping passengers and is connected to a floating center console.
Like an intricate jewel cradled on the floating center console, the Crystal Sphere is the rotatable Shift-By-Wire controller that is exclusive to Genesis. The device visually indicates on and off status of the vehicle. When parked, it is a beautifully crafted crystal. Once on the move, it rotates into a drive selector.
The Genesis X Concept's interior materials showcase the type of sustainable luxury that the Genesis brand is pursuing.
The use of upcycled materials adds unique character to Genesis X's interior. A weave-patterned fabric made out of leftover pieces of leather from previous manufacturing processes was used for the safety belts, parts of the steering wheel, and the airbag cover, highlighting the concept car's sustainability credentials.
