The Genesis Mint is a concept car that the luxury firm unveiled at the 2019 New York Auto Show. The first city car from Hyundai’s premium brand, the Mint concept was designed as “an accessory for the modern, urban lifestyle.” There are no plans to put this design into production.
The Mint concept comes as a surprise from a company that aims at the larger car and SUV segments. The company’s vehicle that’s smaller than a compact, the Mint embraces the runabout body style that was popular in the early 1900s. A light, short vehicle with only two doors and seating for two, the Mint concept is a futuristic take on the Kei car, a highly popular segment in Japan. On top of the sleek, futuristic design, the Mint concept also features an all-electric drivetrain.
