G70, Genesis Sales Increase by Double Digits in 2019

2019 Genesis G70

Genesis Motor America today reported sales of 10,007 for the first two quarters of 2019, a 38 percent increase compared with the prior year. For the month of June, Genesis counted 1,887 vehicles sold. This positive sales momentum is reflective of the great progress we’ve begun to make with our new Genesis Retail Network and appreciation for our portfolio of award-winning vehicles. After initial availability constraints across the growing network of new Genesis retailers in Q4 2018 that resulted in 408 G70 retails, Q1 2019 sales increased 447 percent to 2,231 units and increased another 56 percent in Q2 2019 to 3,484 units.

“Our year-over-year sales growth represents far more than an uptick,” said Erwin Raphael, COO of Genesis Motor America. “Over the last three years, Genesis has already earned a reputation for consumer loyalty and satisfaction, and we are now well along the way to having a retail network to begin to achieve the sales to match.” Leading the charge are some 318 Genesis retailers across the country: more than double the number of fully operational retailers that were in place at the end of 2018. Approximately 50 Genesis retailers are already working on their plans for separate Genesis facilities. Going forward, the needs of specific markets will determine whether these Genesis showrooms will exist as standalone stores or retail storefronts in popular local malls. In addition, the first Genesis Brand Center in New York City is slated to open before the end of the calendar year.

Genesis G70 Agility Tested

This week, Genesis Motor America revealed the second “The Art of the Stunt” video featuring the 2019 Genesis G70. In the three-part video series, professional drivers demonstrate the dynamic agility of G70 while recreating classic scenes of evasive driving from classic films—and then show how the scene was performed with a behind-the-scenes look.

Working with Donut Media and award-winning film industry veterans and professional drivers, Genesis produced the footage to engage performance enthusiasts and movie aficionados alike.

“Genesis G70 embodies the spirit of thrilling driving, so it was only natural to put its dynamics to the test with a high-performance stunt,” said Kate Fabian, head of marketing at Genesis Motor America.

In this second set of videos, stunt driver Tanner Foust pays tribute to an iconic scene from Baby Driver, attempting a “180-reverse-to-drift” maneuver, within inches of a truck blocking the way. The third pair of videos will be released on June 19.
