The GV80 Concept is the Genesis brand’s first interpretation of a versatile luxury SUV, which strikes a perfect balance between elegance and versatility. On the exterior, this is seen in the concept’s confident posture and athletic prowess, while the spacious interior indulges passengers and immerses them in technology that connects them to the vehicle.
Recognising the brand’s global impact, the GV80 utilises the latest plug-in hydrogen fuel cell electric technology to combine eco-performance and capability, all skillfully designed to fulfill the needs and explore the escapes of the urban adventurer.
Genesis will continue to study the benefits of similar alternative propulsion systems and eco-friendly technologies for future product applications.
The GV80 presents a modern and refined interpretation of a capable sports utility vehicle, building on the strength of architecture and the beauty of natural elements.
The design team thoughtfully expressed these ideas throughout the exterior and interior of the vehicle in utilising exceptional materials and purposeful forms to create a feeling of desire. The concept’s overall shape is distinguished by its proportions, finely balanced with dominant surfaces, exhibiting sophistication and functionality that conveys the SUV’s infinite versatility to the driver.
“The GV80 Concept is a SUV that alludes to the confidence and evolution of the Genesis brand. Its design is timeless, with an understated yet dynamic overall surface complexity,” said head of Genesis Design, Luc Donckerwolke. “These are all characteristics that embody Genesis products and delicately reflect distinctive elements, which you’ll continue to see in future models from our brand.”
“This concept is an important milestone for the brand to share our vision of the future, introducing a further expansion of our product portfolio,” said head of Genesis Brand, Manfred Fitzgerald.
