Electric Compact SUV... from Hyundai

FYI for anyone that seen what Hyundai did to the Kona, it might be soon joined by another. I'm posting about it here because we're likely to see a Genesis version. If not and you really want to own something electric, sticking with Hyundai for now might be a good idea. Fortunately the Kona Electric comes off as a boarderline Hyundai/Genesis product.


"Hyundai’s electric lineup is about to become stronger if a report concerning an entirely new EV being added in the not-so-distant future (like, in 2021) turns out to be true.

According to BusinessKorea, unlike the Kona Electric, which is based on the ICE-model’s architecture, the new EV will be built on a dedicated platform, said to have been named the Electric-Global Modular Platform (E-GMP).

The report claims that the yet-to-be-confirmed electric vehicle is known internally as the NE and it should be a compact SUV, slotting above the Kona Electric. We’ll take the next information with the proverbial pinch of salt, as it refers to a 450 km (280-mile) driving range. The battery supplier has yet to be selected, so the number is probably an unofficial target, although one that places it above the Kona’s EPA-estimated 415 km (258 miles).

While the zero-emission, compact SUV from Hyundai is only a rumor for now, the carmaker has already teamed up with Rimac Automobili to come up with an N midship sports car. The announcement was made last month and is part of Hyundai’s preparations for an all-electric future."

I think you mean Hyundai Nexo. Niro EV looks nice but not Genesis nice. In fact I hope some of the Nexo EV's cabin influences this Genesis compact.
