Genesis plans to have its own network of dealers and an expanded line of vehicles for them to sell as it looks to take a piece of the luxury goods pie in 2022.
By then, the now-separated Genesis brand needed to have three crossovers to balance the product menu that was presented by sedans that are highly priced but have struggled to build sales momentum in a truck-dominated market.
Genesis unveiled the GV80 concept as a fuel cell vehicle at the 2017 New York Auto Show.
In March, global brand chief Manfred Fitzgerald told Automotive News that the three-row crossover could arrive in late 2019 or early 2020. On sale there may be hybrid versions with fuel cells or plug-in modules.
The second planned Genesis crossover is expected to ride on the same RWD/AWD platform as the G70 sedan and use a 2.0-liter four-cylinder turbo engine and an optional 3.3-liter twin-turbo.
Hybrid or plug-in hybrid versions are possible.
A third SUV was included in a planned product Hyundai showed to reporters last year in South Korea, and it could join the lineup in 2021.
