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!
Created under the direction of new head of Genesis, Kia and Hyundai design the Essentia is also tasked with changing the perception of the Hyundai luxury brand’s design language.The all-electric, high-performance concept elevates and reimagines the “Athletic Elegance” design paradigm,while providing a vision of future Genesis product performance and technology.
The interior of the car at the show is a bold red with blue dash accents.Essentia is the brand’s first battery electric vehicle and features a lightweight carbon-fiber monocoque,a robust, multi-motor electric powertrain, and a custom-tailored interior.
Ahead of the driver is an 8-inch widescreen display with piano black surround. The information in the cluster includes onlywhat is necessary for driving. 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.
