flood – Genesis has unveiled its iconic X-Speedium Coupe, confirming its continued development of the design concept of the Grand Tourer, which combines power and spaciousness in the interior.
Genesis explained that the model embodies the design language of future electric cars from the Korean luxury brand, to offer an exceptional driving experience.
Designed in the style of “modern living”, the X-Speedium Coupe carries on the brand’s signature legacy of sporting elegance in a more progressive way.
The exterior design of the model represents the inherent identity of the Genesis, it is sophisticated and more attractive with lamps, which span the entire width of the car to highlight the beauty of the front grille. The vehicle embodies Genesis’ distinctive vision for the era of clean vehicles, and underlines Genesis’ transformation into a fully electric vehicle brand.
The body structure takes on an hourglass shape when viewed from above, emphasizing the wheel arches and representing the strong presence and performance of the brand. The main line that emphasizes the style’s character, called the parabola, runs along the sides.
The side design maintains the distinctive character of the Genesis cars, thanks to the curved design lines, which run along the sides and the rest of the car, creating an impression of dynamism and elegance like any unique classic car.
The company worked to enhance the sporty feel of the car through a unique curved design, to appear in integrated and harmonious images, and with a streamlined appearance that exudes simple elegance. The rear tail of the car unites with the brake lights in a V-shape in a circle, to create a clear and striking contrast, like a carefully drawn geometric painting.
The car takes its name from the famous Engi Spadium circuit in Korea, which embodies the passion of the Genesis designers for motorsport.
Inspired by the race track in Korea and the mountainous landscape surrounding the track, the emerald green metallic color of the car on display was chosen, complementing the image of the classic car, which embodies dynamism, speed and elegance.
The interior design incorporates the classic Korean beauty concept known as “white space beauty”, which is inspired by Korean architecture. It closely aligns with the principle of minimalist design, which is expressed by a simple and pure style interspersed with strong design elements.
The model features an asymmetrical design, which meets all the needs of the driver to provide an unparalleled driving experience, continuing the most advanced design strategy of the leading brand, where all control systems and displays surround the driver.
The instrument panel and floating center console wrap around the driver’s cabin, giving a distinctive driving experience inspired by the new era of electric cars.
Genesis offers a series of contrasting colors, which add a striking beauty to the interior cabin, and in an innovative way that differentiates the driver’s area from the passenger space. The designers chose the green color of the driver’s seat, which matches the exterior of the car’s emerald green metal.
Packed with a sophisticated sound system, the X-Speedium Coupe offers an unparalleled acoustic space, blending technology and art in a modern way.

The sound system was commissioned in collaboration with expert Juke-Eu, president of Metal Sound Design, a company specializing in high-performance loudspeakers.
The speakers are thoughtfully and strategically placed to fill the cabin with rich, clear sound. The company has focused its regular and mid-range speakers and subwoofer in carefully selected locations to provide the best sound experience.
The speakers are also made of aluminum metal, which gives clear and loud sounds, by adopting pioneering technology to improve sound performance in an unpredictable way.
The interior cabin in the area in front of the driver includes a large curved OLED screen that reflects the luxury, opulence and sophistication offered by the leading brand.
The screen includes an integrated set of instructions and directions for driving, easy to use and offers absolute ease of controlling various modes. The display also features an engine status indicator and a speedometer designed in ‘rio’ style with RPM standards found on ICE models.
The display on the right side of the driver’s seat features integrated technology with an improved user interface design. The screen also includes the start button as well as multimedia functions and vehicle control.
The X-Speedium Coupe’s cargo area is packed with X-bars with high packing and loading space, and these details are inspired by the G-Matrix model, emphasizing the dynamics of the coupe experience. This design feature is derived from the Genesis Mint concept.
Genesis has designed a style rich in details, which emphasizes its luxury and luxury, starting with the natural quilted leather, which covers the seats and door edges, and is made of a high-quality material.
It gives the impression of a classic sports car, and ends with the steering wheel, which is covered in leather extracted from recycled car seat material and woven in a delicate and innovative way.
Above all, two types of leather have been relied upon: the inside, which is vegan tanned, and the innovative new, breathable full grain leather. Plant-tanned leather is treated with plant-derived materials such as citrus and mimosa, and is processed without chromium.
The breathable grain leather used in the upper cabin requires less water and lower levels of chemicals to manufacture, and the threads used in the finishing process are made from recycled plastic, making the synthetic leather more durable and water resistant.
