Description

Genesis Motor, LLC, is the luxury vehicle division of the Hyundai Motor Group. Initially a model name under Hyundai, Genesis was spun off as an independent marque in 2015 with the first Genesis-branded vehicle, the flagship luxury sedan G90.

History

Hyundai Genesis was introduced in 2008 as an expansion of the company's lineup to rear-wheel drive luxury vehicles. Commercial success and consumer demand encouraged Hyundai to spin Genesis off.

Model Lineup & Future Plans

Besides the flagship luxury sedan G90 and the successor of the original Genesis sedan, the G80, the marque has two other vehicles in its lineup: the compact executive sedan G70, and the midsize crossover SUV GV80.
Genesis plans to introduce a coupe and two crossovers in the coming years. Hyundai is planning to launch the brand in Europe and in Asia beyond its home market South Korea and China.
