Hyundai reveals plans for a RWD Genesis sports car

Hyundai reveals plans for a RWD Genesis sports car

Unlike the previous occasion, when Hyundai denied having plans of building a sports car, the mood seems to have changed. Company officials have now confirmed that development of the Genesis-branded performance car is under away.

Luc Donckerwolke (Hyundai’s VP-design) and Woong-chul Yang (Hyundai’s VP-R&D) told reporters that the Genesis sports car that’s under development is expected to be powered by a hybrid system and will have a two-seat layout. Claimed to be an advanced hybrid power train, it will use a small-capacity petrol engine in tandem with an electric motor.

Yang said, “We are very much interested and as far as I’m concerned, I’d love to promote this sports car. It is something our brand needs at this time. The people working at our ‘N’ division will be working on this car and its pretty high-performance. It’s serious.” He also added that the design team has gone way ahead of the engineering on this sports car, which essentially means that a concept could be showcased in the near future.

Sources state that it remains unclear as to when this Genesis sports car will see the light of the day. However, the incorporation of hybrid tech will definitely make its foothold stronger in the coming years where electric propulsion (to some extent) is necessary.
