Genesis dropped a bombshell ahead of the 2022 LA Auto Show. Somehow, Genesis was able to keep its newest concept car secret up until recently, when it revealed the prettiest convertible concept I’ve seen in ages—the Genesis X Convertible Concept. The Genesis X Convertible Concept is an electric convertible grand touring car concept and it’s breathtakingly beautiful.
There are also some clever design elements throughout. For instance, Genesis found a clever way to work its brand’s front-end design language in without the use of a grille, by simply recreating the grille’s silhouette in headlight bars. It looks great, keeps Genesis’ brand recognition, and eliminates the obnoxious fake grilles of almost every other EV.
Out back, the double taillights and subtle ducktail spoiler give off Aston Martin DB9 Volante vibes and it’s lovely. Also lovely is the way the shoulder line stats at the hood and makes its way all the way back to above the rear fender, which makes it both elegant and muscular looking. The taillights are also in line with the headlights, so if you look at it in profile, it looks like they’d meet if they continued on.
People need get excited about EVs and we need more than just futuristic looking sedans and hatchbacks. So far, 90-percent of EVs on the market are smart, practical, sensible vehicles. We need fun cars with beautiful designs and the Genesis X Convertible Concept could be just the thing. Unfortunately for all of us, it is unlikely that Genesis will put any of these X concept vehicles into production. But there is always hope…
