Built around the philosophy of "Athletic Elegance" the all-electric Genesis Essentia concept car is a stunning example of how to design a futuristic luxury grand tourer. Perhaps the most defining feature of the Essentia concept is the low slung body draped over the bespoke copper wheels, sitting only 50 inches from ground to roof line. The long bonnet and swept-back cabin provokes iconic Gran Turismo proportions, and the side profile features a lovely parabolic line that curves and fills out its shape while emphasizing its overall length. Genesis calls the paint finish "Stardust Gray Metallic", a colour which contrasts nicely with the orange look copper wheels and highlights, and covers the carbon-fiber clad bodywork underneath.
"The Genesis Essentia concept defines our vision for an electric Gran Turismo that integrates Athletic Elegance and Genesis DNA as defining parameters," said Executive Vice President Luc Donckerwolke, Head of Genesis Design. "A Gran Turismo typology highlights our ambition as a luxurious car brand for the connoisseurs and it is the perfect base to project our DNA in the future."
