Genesis Essentia breaks cover at NY

Genesis Essentia Concept is an EV GT to put Tesla to shame

The battery-electric vehicle features a lightweight carbon-fiber monocoque, a robust, multi-motor electric powertrain and a custom-tailored interior.

Of course, we speak only of a concept, so nothing is unveiled about its performance, its price or whether the vehicle will be produced or not, but in the eyes of enthusiasts, the Genesis Essentia has everything to please.

Exterior Inspiration: Updating an Icon Throughout the design, the philosophy of "Athletic Elegance" has a prominent role, marrying power and precision through artistry.

Clearly the most exotic design to emerge from the Genesis design studios, the Essentia poses at least as many questions than it answers. The study is not only strikingly attractive, though, but also advanced as it is entirely made out of carbon fiber including body and chassis.

Its front fascia introduces an evolution of the Genesis Crest Grille that highlights efficiency and aerodynamics. Even more, Genesis Essentia concept's design was made by a renown designer and Genesis Essentia is powered by a 100$ electric engine. "This highlights the exciting opportunities being explored in 3D printing which transcends the lengthy, inflexible and costly tooling process", said Donckerwolke. Layered carbon fiber decor adds a sporty element to the interior details.

A widescreen display dominates the cockpit, apart from an eight-inch digital instrument cluster greeting the driver. Its look is heavily inspired by classic grand tourers of yesteryear, with a long bonnet, double bubble roof and taught rear. The battery pack itself is housed low down in a central tunnel in the monocoque, rather than underneath the passengers. This allows Genesis Essentia to achieve the super-low, 50-inch roofline and spacious, GT-style cabin.

Disconnectivity: A New Standard Essentia was created to be thoroughly connected to the world around it, while providing its occupants a virtual escape. Employing vehicle-to-vehicle communications, the system also keeps the driver informed about upcoming road conditions and helps avoid delays such as traffic congestion. It uses machine learning to recommend routes based on who is behind the wheel, too.

Other sophisticated features of the Essentia include speech recognition allowing for "full vehicle control through voice command", according to a statement announcing the vehicle; an in-car mobile payments system; and interconnectivity with smart home devices, among other features.

AI also plays a critical role in the technological capabilities of Essentia. The vehicle also integrates a banking feature which lets its drivers easily make payments while on the road.
