Genesis Essentia concept: high-tech Coupe dream this classic GT adopts the modern style.


In the 1950s and 1960s, it was not much use to promote the concept car to the public. The shape of the aircraft as inspiration, insert a jet engine – or just for a glass bubble at the top of the illusion, the Doris day wear on the driver’s side look similar, but – you stole the show, and set the tens of thousands of impressive ideas become a dream. Those days are fleeting, however, because the social/political/economic environment will soon deteriorated, fierce cynicism to replace of hope, optimism and begin to brown corduroy with brown shoes. Those dark days, my friends.
With the promise of modern technology, the concept of concept has returned. Although hyperbole still exists, modern examples (usually) are closer to production than their ancestors.
Take the Genesis Essentia concept coupe, which was unveiled at the New York auto show. After buzzwords and phrases including “electrification escapism” and “movement elegance” and “combining power and precision through art”, Essentia is still rooted in reality.
Compact and light EV
The packaging flexibility of lightweight carbon fiber single-shell and electric powertrains enables its designers to create cars that are low key and classic GT proportions, Genesis says. In particular, this means a long, transparent cover that flows into the windshield and into the back of the bubble cap. The grille with the prominent Genesis cover on the side is a set of four headlamps similar to the GV80 concept. Behind the front wheels is a functional vent that helps reduce pressure buildup and drag.
The configuration file is dominated by Essentia’s low 50-inch roof line and the so-called “anti-wedge-shaped” parabolic feature line. This is a modern style of classical shape, which responds to the GT design of the past, while still showing some originality. The butterfly door is unlocked and activated by means of a fingerprint sensor hidden on the B column and a biometric facial recognition system. The bottom of the greenhouse is surrounded by a thin copper accent, extending to the nose and echoing in the wheels. The concave rear design includes modern lighting elements while the offset carbon fiber diffuser regulates the flow.

Clean this room, damn it.
Genesis of interior contracted design philosophy is called the “metamorphosis” elegant, this is a strange way, that almost all of the typical operating switch equipment has entered the digital domain, and by touch screen, single multi-purpose controller or installation of the steering wheel management controls. Cognac grain leather seats and Oxford cloth blue leather in the console, contrast is formed on the instrument panel and rear seats, while blue velvet fabric at the top and post supply, carbon fiber hit around. Especially noteworthy is the dynamic weaving of G matrix on column A and door panel. Luc Donckerwolke, head of Genesis design, says the recent development of 3D printing technology has eliminated time-consuming and costly processing.
Essentia also includes vehicle-to-infrastructure and vehicle-to-vehicle communications, providing drivers with up-to-date information on road conditions, accidents and traffic jams. Voice recognition technology is the next generation of Genesis intelligent assistant. As for navigation, Essentia USES machine learning intelligence to recommend custom routes. Essentia can also communicate with the smart home system to pre-program HVAC Settings, turn on lights and allow packages to be delivered – even electronic payments via a central screen.
Despite its modernity, the Essentia concept does have one common feature with the old concept: the complete lack of power assembly details. All of genesis says it has “multiple electric motors” and “I battery packs”. However, it also estimates that 0 to 60 miles per hour is 3.0 seconds.
While Essentia is unlikely to see production in its current form, we like details and techniques and low double doors. Because if a concept car is not uncompromising and optimistic, what’s the point?
