Genesis GV80 SUV concept with Andra Day NYIAS

The melodic voice of American singer and songwriter, Andra Day, unveiled the Genesis GV80 SUV plug-in hydrogen fuel cell at the New York International Auto Show. The concept SUV didn’t give much information about the plug-in hydrogen fuel cell electric technology Genesis would be using, but the technology would likely be shared with its sister car companies, Hyundai and Kia.

The newest premium luxury brand unveiled the GV80 SUV at the New York fashion car week, the car show most known for fashion in design in the United States.

“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.”

“There is a unique energy and diverse global culture to New York that is fitting for Genesis, and we are excited to unveil the GV80 Concept here,” said Head of Genesis Brand, Manfred Fitzgerald. “This concept is an important milestone for the brand to share our vision of the future, introducing a further expansion of our product portfolio.”
