Genesis X Concept presents sustainable luxury of GENESIS in the form of an EV-based high-performance GT coupe concept car.
Introducing the Genesis X Concept
The name ‘Genesis X’ is a combination of Genesis and the letter X, which symbolizes a “Hidden Hero”.
The Genesis X Concept can be described as the ultimate vision of Athletic Elegance, the inherent design language of Genesis. The signature Two Lines theme and sustainable luxury will be blueprints for the futuristic designs and state-of-the-art technologies that Genesis seeks to adopt in its future models.

Color of the Genesis X Concept
The Genesis X Concept’s Lençóis Blue color was developed to express the level of sustainable luxury that Genesis pursues. It is inspired by the lagoons of Maranhenses National Park in Brazil, where a lake forms only during the rainy season.
The front of the Genesis X features a low, yet broad silhouette thanks to the combination of the shield-shaped Crest Grille, which represents the brand’s inherent dignity and pride, and the two-lined headlamps, which cut through the wheel arch. The double-layered bumpers also create a strong impression.
The side follows the traditional GT model design with a long hood and a short rear, and the two-lined lamps leading to the headlights and taillights are impressive. In addition, the arching ‘Parabolic Line’ that runs along the side, and the fender’s maximized volume, create a dynamic and elegant impression.
The rear design, incorporating the shape of a horseshoe, exudes a simple and sleek image, while the voluminous fender creates a sophisticated, yet strong impression.
Two Lines Design In The Details
The two-lined Quad Lamps symbolize Genesis’ unparalleled technology and design.
The taillights, which feature a two-lined design like the headlamps, evoke a sense of unity with the front, and create a sophisticated and sensual image with diffusers that accentuate the Two Lines aesthetic.
Dlo Glass Molding
Subtle Two-line DLO molding breaks from convention, shows Genesis identity.
While the slick, slide-to-open charging door, which features no parting lines, creates a progressive and high-tech image, the Two Lines design element is emphasized through the two-lined lights around the charging port.
Design In The Details
A three-dimensional G-Matrix pattern was applied to the sharp and intricate metal structure of the Crest Grille, the symbol of Genesis, to accentuate the imagery of a futuristic electric car. The internal pattern of the grille has been painted in the same color as the exterior in order to create a sense of unity.
Genesis maximized the concept car’s sporty sensibility by incorporating two-layered, turbine-type alloy wheels with five spokes. The brake calipers’ lime accenting hints at the high-performance character of the Genesis X Concept.
Digital Side Mirror
Obsession to detail, the digital side mirror captures the Two-line motif.
Interior/ Attention To Every Detail
Inspired by the Beauty of White Space, the Genesis X Concept’s interior features a driver-oriented design with a cockpit that surrounds the driver with all operating systems and displays.
Two lines interior
The application of the Two Lines design element to the slim and indirect air vents that surround passengers, as well as the side window molding, emphasizes the model’s Two Lines concept while providing a sense of unity with the exterior design.
Floating Console & Dashboard
The Genesis X Concept also features a dashboard that creates the sense that it is enveloping passengers and is connected to a floating center console.
The Crystal Sphere is a Genesis exclusive Rotatable SBW(Shift-By-Wire). A special device that visually indicates On & Off status of the vehicle. It is like an intricate jewel cradled on the floating center console. When parked, it is a beautifully crafted crystal. Once on the move, it rotates into a drive selector.
New Sustainable Luxury
The Genesis X Concept’s interior materials showcase the type of sustainable luxury that the Genesis brand pursues.
Up-Cycled Weaving Material
The use of upcycled materials adds unique character to Genesis X’s interior. A weave-patterned fabric made out of leftover pieces of leather from previous manufacturing processes was used for the safety belts, parts of the steering wheel, and the airbag cover, highlighting the concept car’s eco-friendliness.
