Essentia is the brand’s first battery electric vehicle and features a lightweight carbon-fiber monocoque, a robust, multi-motor electric powertrain, and a custom-tailored interior.

It is the brand’s initial concept for a true GT car and challenges the status quo as the ultimate manifestation of Genesis design and engineering. As a capable, thrilling sports car designed to counter the complexities of a modern lifestyle, offers serenity, clarity, and beauty.

    Every Hyundai/Kia that I’ve driven in the past 5 years has had terrible high speed stability. Santa Fe, Elantra, and accent were not great, even at moderate high speeds like 80mph. I’m considering picking up a CPO 2nd gen Genesis, but this is the number one thing I’m concerned about. I often traverse highways out west where it’s not unusual for me (and some other traffic) to travel at 90mph+ for long periods of time when safety/speed limit allows. I want as solid a car as possible at those speeds. No one seems to be able to honestly tell me if the Genesis will give me the same solid feeling at those speeds as an A6 or 5 series.
