Discipline: Professional Concept

The Genesis Essentia is a vision of an electric performance GT, it is an ultimate manifestation of an athletic elegance design paradigm. The exterior excites with a crest grille that acts as an airflow guide, minimalist quad lights, an anti-wedge parabolic line, cut-off ducktail rear with flush taillights, and a glass canopy for perfect visibility showcasing carbon fiber monocoque. The interior is governed by a 'beauty of white space' philosophy, with negative spaces providing a sense of serenity. A slim center console bisects the cabin, and a unique G-Matrix fills the spaces between the exterior and the interior showing lightness and another dimension of refinement.
