Genesis has introduced the X Convertible concept, a car that builds on the previous Genesis X and X Speedium Coupe automobiles. It has the same architecture and electric engine as other vehicles, but it has a folding hardtop roof and is designed to suggest “design purity,” as well as a “anti-wedge parabolic” shape, according to Genesis.
The bulgy fenders and aggressive front end have been replaced with a more subtle design and smoother, longer lines. The short front overhang, which gives it a projecting snout, adds to the length. The triangular headlights and twin taillights from the X Speedium remain retained. The hardtop roof incorporates a moonroof, allowing drivers to see the stars even when the roof is closed.
The inside looks a lot like the previous two designs, with the dashboard screen curving across and down toward the right armrest. According to Genesis, the interior Giwa Navy and Dancheong Orange hues are “influenced in part by traditional Korean roof architecture.” It is made of recyclable wool textiles and leather seats.
We still have no information on the battery or drivetrain. However, it makes sense to utilise the E-GMP platform seen in Hyundai’s Ioniq 5 and the Kia EV6. Genesis may then increase the power and battery capacity to match the expectations of premium vehicle consumers in terms of range and performance.
Genesis calls the X Convertible a “beacon for the brand,” implying that it will influence future designs. It’s unlikely to be constructed in this shape, but the corporation wants purchasers to see what’s possible.
