For 2024, Genesis continues to build out its electric vehicle offerings, following an approach similar to that of BMW, Volvo, and Maserati—by repurposing some existing internal-combustion vehicles instead of building costly dedicated electric vehicle platforms. It distinguishes those full battery electric models as “Electrified.”
The brand also has cut some base offerings in its sedan lineup and made all-wheel drive standard on most of its six core models. A refreshed G70 compact sedan injects more performance into the brand’s entry point. It’s also revealing big changes for 2025, including a larger three-row electric SUV known as the Genesis GV90.
Genesis continues to make inroads into the luxury segment. It’s sold more than one million vehicles globally since its inception in 2015, and in the U.S. its sales volume is up 21.7% in the first half of 2023 compared to the first half of 2022. Genesis has sold as many cars in the U.S. as JLR, and trailed Lincoln by about 8,000 units (Lincoln sold 39,058 cars in the first half of the year versus 31,234 for Genesis).
That’s impressive growth in a short time for an exclusively hostile segment, and Genesis continually finishes as a finalist in our annual Best Car To Buy testing. Hyundai’s luxury brand has balanced distinct design, potent powertrains, luxurious feature seats, all at a relative value.
Here’s what’s new for 2024 for Genesis. Genesis has not yet disclosed any changes for the G90 full-size sedan, so we expect it to carry over unchanged.
