Genesis Mint Concept - Two-Seat Electric City Car
The cargo area is accessed via two reverse-opening scissor doors.
Genesis's new Mint concept is a two-door electric city car that the brand would like to see enter production in the future.
The cargo space is accessed by two reverse-opening scissor doors on the sides of the car.
The interior features a bench seat and minimal instrumentation.
Genesis thinks it's time to break the luxury-car mold, and it's doing so with a new concept car that has made its debut at the New York auto show. Called the Mint—the name comes from the car's bright matte Hunter Green paint—it's a two-seat, two-door electric city car that's a little hard to figure out. At a preview event in New York City ahead of the Mint's unveiling, we got to get up close with the car and learn more about it from Genesis's executive vice president, Manfred Fitzgerald, and Hyundai's global head of design, SangYup Lee.
Fitzgerald says that the luxurious city car segment is "a white spot on the map for OEMs," one that the Mint looks to fill. It purposely doesn't fit into the typical model hierarchy; luxury in the automotive world has typically been about "size does matter," but Genesis wants to think differently. "We don't want 'Big car is expensive, small car is cheaper.' We want each car to have its own character," Lee explains.
With the Mint, Genesis is asking, "Can small be luxurious?" and hoping that the public responds with a resounding "Yes."

Genesis Mint is the cutest electric concept car for city living
It's a small car with only two seats and two doors, but the butterfly-wing doors are a showstopper despite the mini size. There's no trunk, but there is a shelf behind the seats to stash some items for your jaunt around town.

The all-electric vehicle would go 200 miles on a single charge and capable of fast charging.

Kia's 'spicy' electric concept car makes an over-the-top debut at NY Auto Show
First, the not-so-hot-and-spicy specs: it's an all-electric, all-wheel drive, four-seater with 300-mile range and full autonomy capability with butterfly-wing doors. 

While the HabaNiro is just an idea, it could pave the way for future electric vehicles beyond the Niro, which recently went all electric after debuting as a hybrid vehicle a few years ago.

Amazon-backed Rivian spurned GM with plans to build for others
Scaringe's grand plan helps explain why talks that would have given GM a stake fell apart. With consumers and businesses showing interest, Rivian is rebuffing a deal that may have required a level of exclusivity that would have kept it from building vehicles for others.

The Jaguar I-Pace wins World Car of the Year, World Green Car awards | Ars Technica
We were among the panel of 86 international jurors for the annual award program.
NEW YORK—On Wednesday morning, the Jaguar I-Pace won this year's World Car of the Year award at the 2019 New York International Auto Show. It beat two other finalists, the Audi e-tron and Volvo's S60 and V60 twins to top honors, as voted by a panel of 86 journalists from around the world. Disclosure: for the second year in a row, I was one of those judges. We were asked to score each eligible car on a range of attributes, including safety, the environment, performance, design, and value, but only for vehicles we actually drove. You can see the list of eligible vehicles for this year's awards here. (Sorry, Tesla fans: the Model 3 is really rather good but went on sale too long ago to be considered for this year's awards.)
I'm not surprised that the I-Pace won; as a battery electric vehicle it scored highly on its green credentials, it's a joy to drive, and it looks stunning inside and out. Much of that can be said about the Volvos and the Audi, but if I had a place to charge it and I could afford one, the I-Pace would be my pick to replace our now-totaled Saabaru. (I don't, can't, and my wife gets to pick the next car anyway.)
