Genesis Unveiled Two Futuristic Concepts In New York

In recent years, auto shows haven’t been the exciting showcases of new vehicles they once were, but this year’s New York International Auto Show has already seen a few compelling concept vehicles. Genesis took the opportunity to show off a pair of SUV concepts, including a sleek electric model and a performance SUV from a new sub-brand called Magma.

Genesis unveiled the Neolun electric SUV concept and the GV60 Magma Concept. The Neolun has no B-pillars, and its doors open coach-style, with the rear doors opening backward from the traditional configuration. While it sports some lines and design elements from current Genesis vehicles, the concept takes them to the future. The SUV features electric side steps, striking lighting elements, and a pop-up roof rack that preserves the vehicle’s sleek lines. Inside, the concept features cashmere and real wood trim. The indigo color scheme helps set “a relaxing mood,” and it has a natural wood floor, which likely won’t make it to production if Genesis decides to sell the SUV.

The GV60 Magma Concept is headed for production as the first in a new line of performance vehicles from Genesis. It features upgraded cooling for the batteries and electric motors, and canards help increase downforce on the front axle. It has Nappa leather and suede upholstery inside, along with bucket seats with body-colored seatbacks. Genesis also said that it would release the G80 Magma Special in the Middle East, and we saw the GV80 Coupe Concept last year, which the automaker noted would join the Magma line.

We don’t know exactly when these vehicles will hit the market or what they’ll cost. It’s also unclear the order in which they will go on sale, but Genesis did note that the G80 Magma Special would only be sold in Middle East markets.
