Genesis X Convertible World Premier

Genesis has unveiled its stunning Genesis X Convertible concept at a special event in California. The four-seater convertible joins the X Concept and X Speedium Coupe to complete a trio of bold design studies that showcase the brand’s commitment to sustainable luxury and cutting-edge electric vehicle technology.

Sharing its advanced architecture and state-of-the-art electric powertrain with the 2021 X Concept and X Speedium Coupe concept, the Genesis X Convertible represents the latest evolution of the brand’s trademark Athletic Elegance design language, as well giving another glimpse at the exciting look of future Genesis electric vehicles.

Beyond Athletic Elegance

Featuring a unique folding hardtop roof that houses individual glass panels above the front occupants, the Genesis X Convertible offers a heightened sensory experience thanks to the open roof, providing driver and passengers a direct connection with their surrounding environment.

With its long bonnet, short front overhang and long wheelbase, the Genesis X Convertible features the brand’s unmistakable Athletic Elegance design proportions. Also familiar is the bold Parabolic Line that both accentuates the car’s strong profile, while the muscular blisters around the wheels form a classic ‘Coke bottle’ shape when viewed from above.

At the front of the Genesis X Convertible are the trademark LED quad lights that help create the brand’s Two-Line graphic identity. As with the X Speedium Coupe concept, the lights are now integrated into an eye-catching visual interpretation of the Crest Grille seen on the firm’s internal combustion engine models. For the all-electric Genesis X Convertible, the cooling function for the powertrain and batteries have been relocated to smaller openings set low down in the front bumper.

At the rear, the Genesis X Convertible concept features a bold concave elliptical tailgate design with integrated spoiler, while the horizontal quad taillights echo those already seen on the X Concept and X Speedium Coupe. Elsewhere, the eye-catching V-shape indentation in the tailgate takes its influence from the iconic crest and wings of the Genesis logo.

The Genesis X Convertible concept’s exterior features a bespoke Crane White finish. Representing nobility and sanctity in Korea, the White Crane is an important cultural icon that Genesis was keen to incorporate in the concept’s character. The result is an exterior surface coated in white with pearl particles, achieving a luxurious shine that dynamically frames the contrasting interior.

Finally, the wheels combine the trademark Genesis’ G-Matrix pattern with an efficient aero dish concave section that both improves airflow and helps to cool the brakes. 

Bold interior with a unique Korean twist

The interior of the X Convertible concept features a four-seat layout with a special focus on the driving environment. A wraparound instrument panel seamlessly integrates the centre console, creating a driver focussed environment that highlights the Genesis X Convertible concept’s performance potential.

Inspired by traditional Korean roof architecture, the interior features Giwa Navy and Dancheong Orange colours, which create a modern look that’s perfectly in tune with the car’s vibrant character.

The primary interior colour is Giwa Navy, which takes its name from the “Giwa”, the roof tiles used on Korean houses. Made from recyclable wool fabric, the textured and woven trim wraps around the cabin, contrasting with the smooth and sleek leather surfaces of the seats, which are finished in the same colour.

Meanwhile, Dancheong Orange serves as a bold contrast finish and is used for the fine stitching that is used throughout the interior. This distinctive colour is the same that is used for the decorative trim used on traditional Korean wooden buildings.

Speaking about the Genesis X Convertible Chief Creative Officer, Luc Donckerwolke, said: “It is the normal development of Genesis to increase the athletic and emotional facet of our design philosophy by creating an emotional trilogy: the X family. Electric powertrains have given us the perfect scenario in which to enjoy nature, which is something convertibles do better than any other vehicle. With the Genesis X Convertible, we have built upon the stunning success X Concept and X Speedium Coupe to further propel the brand’s mission to create vehicles with even greater emotional resonance.”

Genesis X Concept and X Speedium Coupe

The Genesis X Convertible is the third electric design study from the brand and is a natural development of the X Concept. A striking two-door coupe that was revealed in Los Angeles in 2021, it showcased the Genesis Athletic Elegance design language, as well as the brand’s commitment to a sustainable future. The second car in the trilogy, the X Speedium Coupe, was a high-performance sports coupe inspired by the Inje Speedium circuit in Korea. Unveiled in New York in April 2022 it also showcased an evolution of the trademark that included the addition of a bold LED lighting signature to the trademark Genesis Crest Grille. 

The four-seater convertible joins the X Concept and X Speedium Coupe to complete a trio of bold design studies that showcase the brand’s commitment to sustainable luxury and cutting-edge electric vehicle technology.
