Concept cars at auto shows rarely disappoint — and the compact electric car from luxury car brand Genesis is one of the cuter ideas for a future car.
At the New York International Auto Show this week, the Genesis Mint was on display, showing off the high-end urban vehicle. The Hyundai luxury brand doesn’t have any electric vehicles in its lineup yet.
It’s a small car with only two seats and two doors, but the butterfly-wing doors are a showstopper despite the mini size. There’s no trunk, but there is a shelf behind the seats to stash some items for your jaunt around town.
The all-electric vehicle would go 200 miles on a single charge and capable of fast charging.
Inside the car, the steering wheel has a center screen surrounded by six other copper-lined screens displaying car info. The center screen displays all the necessary driving information like speed and vehicle information.
The interior still feels fairly open with a leather bench — it makes use of the tiny space.
Genesis is known for its G90 sedan, which is a full-sized car that towers over the Mint concept. Using that sedan as a baseline you’re reminded this is very much a luxury item.
That car starts around $70,000 — but is more than an idea.
