The GV80 Concept is the brand’s first interpretation of a versatile luxury SUV, which strikes a perfect balance between elegance and versatility. Equipped with the latest cutting-edge technology, the new GV80 Concept utilizes a plug-in hydrogen fuel cell electric technology to combine eco-performance and capability, all skillfully designed to fulfill the needs of its users. The car is carefully designed to represent athletic prowess and confidence, combined with elegance and versatility.

The GV80 Concept Car reflects our vision for what the future car would look like. It’ll provide the direction for the development of our products and we look forward to seeing this Concept turn to reality in the future. I’m thrilled to be in Qatar to take part in the Qatar Motor Show 2018, alongside our partners from Jaidah Group and Skyline Automotive, which has become a key event for automakers in the region.”

The GV80 Concept presents a modern and refined interpretation of a capable utility vehicle, building on the strength of architecture and the beauty of natural elements. The Genesis design team, which brought together some of the leaders in automotive design from around the world, thoughtfully expressed these ideas throughout the exterior and interior of the vehicle in utilizing exceptional materials and purposeful forms. The concept car’s overall shape is distinguished by its proportions, finely balanced with dominant surfaces, exhibiting sophistication and functionality that conveys the SUV’s infinite versatility to the driver.

The GV80 Concept creates a sophisticated environment for its passengers through superior craftsmanship, creative attention to detail and advanced technology, including an innovative Human Machine Interface that offers users intuitive operation and function control through the use of a new multi-function interactive controller with capacitive touch.
