Genesis Essentia Concept Gallery

What does the modern Gran Turismo do to differentiate itself from the long heritage of cars bearing that descriptor? If you’re Genesis, you’re make the whole thing entirely electric, though still capable of 0-60 mph in a mere three seconds. Welcome, therefore, the deeply appealing Genesis Essentia Concept.

Making its debut at the New York International Auto Show 2018, the Essentia Concept previews the direction Genesis says – and, frankly, we hope – the automaker takes its cars in. A gullwing-doored, all-electric GT, it’s a vision of carbon fiber. Transparent panels give a little glimpse of the technical detail underneath.

Inside, there’s an AI-blessed dashboard with lashings of connectivity. Four seats are a given, what with the GT designation, as is enough cargo space for a few bags at least. Will Genesis build it? Probably not, but let’s hope the styling at least gets transferred to future production cars.
