Genesis Reveals First EV At The 2018 New York Auto Show

By Brian Spaen

Genesis stole the New York International Auto Show with their new Essentia concept vehicle. The sleek, futuristic sports car is what many believed would be commonplace by this time period many years ago. It’s the first electric vehicle created by the luxury division of the Hyundai Motor Group.

The new Essentia will feature a lightweight, carbon fiber body with butterfly doors and a transparent bubble roof. Along with a multi-motor electric powertrain, this vehicle will achieve a speed from 0 to 60 miles per hour in just three seconds. Drivers will utilize fingerprint scanning and facial recognition in order to operate the vehicle. As you’d expect, it’ll be battery electric with no statistics announced yet.
