Hyundai unveiled the Vision G Coupe Concept at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art in California earlier this month. While the concept’s front is seemingly inspired from the current Genesis, its rear-end appears to have cues borrowed from the next-gen Hyundai Equus that was spied up-close a few weeks back. However, this doesn’t create a confusion as to whether the concept will evolve into a production coupe for the Genesis or Equus. Reports say that Hyundai is not going to make a Genesis coupe, not in current generation at least.
So, if the concept evolves into a production model, it will likely be a coupe version of the next-gen Equus. While the concept suggests that Hyundai is interested in making a 2-door coupe, possibility of a 4-door coupe shouldn’t be ruled out either.
A wild speculation, but a possible one, is that the company could create a whole Equus range with a sedan, 2-door coupe and 4-door coupe, similar to what its German rivals do. A speculative rendering (featured image) from automotive illustrator Shoeb Kalania previews how a 4-door Genesis coupe could look like.
A 2-door coupe would largely bring success in North America, but a 4-door coupe can be equally successful in Europe too. What Hyundai decides about the concept, will likely be known next year. The company’s current major plans include the third generation Equus sedan and sixth generation Elantra (Avante), both expected to go on sale as a MY2017 in North America.
