Genesis GV80 Fuel Cell Concept

In what may turn out to be one of the very few true surprises of the 2017 edition of the Ney York Auto Show, Genesis has unveiled a car that isn’t really surprise at the same time. Allow me to explain.

Genesis QV80

The GV80 is a luxury SUV. To stay in the car business these days, an SUV is a must. The coming of a Genesis SUV was very predictable. As far as fuel cell technology, Hyundai’s dabbled in and with it for a number of years now. Combining the two into a plug-in hydrogen fuel cell electric vehicle creates a perfect showcase for the brand.

Styling-wise, we find a mixed bag of elegant lines, principally the smooth curving accent line just below the beltline and odd-looking 23’ mesh alloy wheels and “B” and “C” pillars.

The cabin is far more sophisticated and unified. The horizontal 22-inch curved OLED infinity display is brilliant, showcasing an information zone for the driver, and one for the passenger. The materials and craftsmanship throughout are worthy of the ultra-high-end luxury vehicle market.

The takeaway here is that Genesis will be introducing a midsize luxury ute in the next few years however we are more likely to see a gasoline hybrid version than a fuel cell iteration.
