Lithium-ion will apparently be the focus as far as EVs go, with no hint as to whether or not more advanced technologies like solid-state batteries are being considered. To get some of the pleasant shapes Genesis is previewing here, a more energy-dense and compact way to store energy would certainly be nice. Lithium-ion batteries are not only heavy, but they also take up a lot of space.
Genesis’ global sales goal by the time these plans are executed is 400,000 units per year. To give some perspective, the brand sold 128,365 units in 2020. Lofty goals, for sure, though the company’s lineup is currently made up of just five vehicles, most of which have been released very recently. Sales in the United States this year are also nearly double what they were in 2020, according to Good Car Bad Car.
With an even more appealing lineup and a vehicle to fit every need, it’s likely the brand’s global sales will see a boost. Let’s just hope the company gets the future of mobility right. The GV60 is a promising start, but short ranges and strange looks can seriously hamper an automaker’s plans to go electric. Let’s hope that’s not the case here.
