Revealed at a private event ahead of the Los Angeles Auto Show, the Genesis X convertible gives a glimpse of what a production convertible car from the Korean luxury brand could look like, assuming such a thing be one day built. The X Convertible is the third in a series of Genesis “X” concept cars, following the X Concept (2021) and the X Speedium Coupe (August 2022).
Purely a design exercise, the Crane White X Convertible features a long wheelbase and very short front and rear overhangs, giving the sunroof a racy yet neat profile and well-balanced proportions. And, putting the roof up doesn’t mean giving up sunlight; the X’s folding hardtop includes a moonroof.
The cabin is finished with Giwa Navy and Dancheong Orange accents, hues named after the decorative colorings found on traditional Korean wooden buildings.
Genesis will only say that, like previous X concepts, the X Convertible is electric. No additional technical information is available. If the Convertible X was destined for production, we might hear more.
Hyundai is on a design spree – check out the Current G90 for proof, and it’s a shame that this compelling convertible will probably never see production. That said, Genesis has a lot going for it right now, with a GV80 “coupe” and an electric GV70 on the way.
