Beefer is off on vacation but I wanted to pass along some information he got this morning during a call with Kevin, the owner of Genesis of Alexandria. Kevin just got back from California and got an update on the dealer situation in Florida, California, and Texas:

Florida has been resolved. They should be getting the State franchise setup any day. From there...dealers can start getting their individual licenses.

California...99.9% resolved. They should be wrapping up litigation soon...and then proceeding.

Texas...this is the one State where they are waiting to get the State license and all the dealer licenses all at once. So Texas will not roll out dealer by dealer. They will be BAM...all dealers on the board.


I will crosspost in the General Discussion Forum.

Thank-you Mr Turtle. Dealers here in OC So Cal have told me they are hoping for availability of the G70 by the end of the year. About a month away, sounds about right. Genesis website currently shows my closest Dealer as Yuma AZ, 300 miles away.

It's been more than 2 weeks since @TurtleBoy made this announcement and still there is not a single dealer in Florida selling the G70 (or any other 2019 MY) Genesis. I asked my dealer and they have no clue. Anyone from Florida got any info?

I don't see anything for Florida either. Usually I see dealers about two weeks before they get inventory so hopefully soon or else it looks like December is out for the Florida launch.

I have no clue either. My contact has no clue either. If it’s not by the end of December then it’s most likely January.

So I’ve heard through the grape vine that further complicating the matters is the JD power initial quality award and genesis is holding cars to check and double check them. Just explains a little why stock is still having trouble hitting the dealers

My guess is someone was making things up/misheard. From what I can tell when looking at the dealer situation, the new inventory is flowing pretty freely to both new and existing dealers. I think there are around 500 2019s currently on dealer lots.

Edit: I should note though that dealers are not able to get in many models/trims that they want to. I had a salesman tell me on Friday that he has had some people wanting to buy since the were introduced but want specific trims and he has not been able to get them in yet. They may not be specific to Genesis, I don't know.

About 200 on cars.com, where are you seeing 500?
