Essentia is a concept sports car that was produced by Genesis, the luxury marque of the Hyundai Motor Group. It was built in 2018 and first displayed at the New York International Auto Show in the same year.
During the 2018 Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este I filmed the Hyundai Genesis Essentia Concept. This all-electric car looks absolutely amazing if you ask me! Video includes some detailed shots of it as well as the car driving around!
Like many of its contemporaries in the sports car and supercar markets, the Essentia features a number of performance and luxury features, following the brand’s then-new ‘athletic elegance’ design language.These include a two-tone[disambiguation needed] exterior,carbon fiber monocoque, a low roofline at only 50 inches,butterfly doors,digital connectivity, and others.
Much of the car utilizes detailed stylized webbing as a primary texture, which designer Luc Donckerwolke noted was done by 3D printing.The Essentia concept debuts an all-electric GT vehicle with new battery technology, with a claimed 0-100km/h time of around 3.0 seconds.Essentia uses batteries that run up the centre of the vehicle.
