The electric car market is really heating up globally and one standout is South Korean automaker Genesis, launching the Mint Concept at Hudson Yards, NYC, ahead of the opening of the 2019 New York International Auto Show. The Mint Concept is the all-electric, luxury car for the city, a new vehicle design, featuring an organic silhouette and innovative interior user experience that I am absolutely loving!
Inside and out, the Mint Concept is a two-door, two-passenger city car finished in Hunter Green with a sporty athletic appearance.
The G-Matrix pattern serves a functional purpose on the lower half of the vehicle, used for efficient cooling and airflow circulation around the battery floor. In lieu of a conventional trunk with a rear hatch, the car features a parcel shelf designed for occasional use. Access to the rear compartment is provided by scissor-style side openings engineered with a low load-in point to allow for easy stowage and retrieval. The interior of the Mint Concept offers ample space to stash temporary items that are essential for day-to-day life, with focus on portability and accessibility.
The Mint Concept takes advantage of every cubic inch of its interior. The cozy space for two is made to feel expansive, through the use of lightweight textiles, cognac leather, and mullion-free windows.
The G-Matrix pattern features prominently as the defining element of the interior, both in the thin, gunmetal balustrade that runs across the width of the passenger compartment and in the repeating pattern for the floor and cargo area.
The versatility of the Mint Concept extends to the design and engineering of its high- density, battery-electric power-train, which is capable of an estimated 200 miles per full charge and 350-KW fast recharging.
