Watch Genesis Reveal Mystery Electric Concept Live At 6:57 PM EST

Genesis is holding a special event in the Big Apple on the eve of the New York Auto Show to reveal their new all-electric concept model. You can watch the presentation live in the video below at 6:57 PM Eastern time. (Update 4/16/2019)

The New York Auto Show is just days away and Genesis is gearing up for the event by releasing a handful of new teaser images.

The company is keeping details under wraps, but the pictures show a stylish new concept which could be a three-door hatchback or crossover. Regardless of what it is, the concept has a distinctive front fascia with unique lighting units. We can also see a front lip spoiler and a tiny grille.

Genesis was didn’t say much about the concept, but hinted it will be a “captivating” compact vehicle with a design that will “defy the eyes.” The automaker also said “Sometimes the biggest surprises come in the smallest packages.”

The concept will be unveiled tomorrow evening at 7:00 PM EST and Hyundai Motor Group’s design boss has already confirmed the vehicle will have an electric powertrain. Details haven’t been announced, but it could follow in the footsteps of last year’s Essentia concept which had a “multi-motor electric powertrain” which enabled the car to accelerate from 0-60 mph (0-96 km/h) in an estimated 3.0 seconds.

Besides the all-new concept, Genesis will show the US-spec 2020 G90. Originally unveiled last November, the facelifted sedan has a bolder design thanks to a new crest grille and restyled headlights. The flagship sedan has also been outfitted with a new hood, restyled taillights and an improved infotainment system.

There’s no word on US specifications quite yet, but the South Korean model is available with three different engines including an entry-level 3.8-liter V6 that produces 311 hp (232 kW / 315 PS) and 293 lb-ft (397 Nm) of torque. The turbocharged 3.3-liter V6 packs 365 hp (272 kW / 370 PS) and 376 lb-ft (510 Nm) of torque, while the 5.0-liter V8 boasts 419 hp (313 kW / 425 PS) and 383 lb-ft (520 Nm) of torque.

    I might be wrong but it’s looks hatchback-ish to me, kinda has a Juke/CH-R vibe so it might be a hatchback

      It would be more upscale if it wears the Genesis branding. 🙂

    You sure that ain’t the Nissan Juke? because the shape screams it.
