Genesis, the luxury automotive brand of Hyundai will open its first dedicated brand space inside a newly built cultural complex ‘Starfield’ in Hanam, 30km east of Seoul on September 9. The Genesis Studio embodies the brand directions of Genesis and its core characteristics. Being located in the high traffic area, the space is expected to attract lots of visitors, evoking their curiosity around the brand.
“We are very excited to open the Genesis brand’s first dedicated brand space, Genesis Studio. Visitors can easily drop by the Studio, and get a chance to know about Genesis. This space, located in a busy area, will serve to introduce our brand, and to raise visitors’ curiosity around it. We have also developed diverse concepts of brand spaces that fit for different objectives, so you will see more exciting brand spaces to come in the near future,” said Manfred Fitzgerald, Head of the Genesis brand.
As a design-focused brand, Genesis focuses on making the space embrace the brand’s unique design directions. Located on the second floor of the complex, the Genesis Studio will host the range-topping G90 limousine, G80, and G80 Sport. In particular, visitors can have an opportunity to experience the G80 Sport ahead of its official launch scheduled later this year in Korea.
Visitors will also experience the luxury and attention to detail of the materials and technologies through hands-on exhibits. For example, the doors of the G80 and G90 are displayed in Genesis Studio in all available combinations of exquisite exterior colors and artisan interior materials.
Moreover, the Genesis Studio provides a one-stop, stress-free customer experience where brand experience, test drives, purchases and consultation are conveniently offered to each customer. Genesis experts will deliver interesting stories and values behind the Genesis brand along with detailed information on Genesis vehicles. Visitors can also experience the comfortable yet dynamic driving performance of the Genesis range by test driving the vehicles, even at high speeds, on a range of specially-planned routes.
Starting from Genesis Studio in Hanam, Genesis plans to open diverse concepts of brand spaces in major markets. As the first dedicated brand space for Genesis, the site in Hanam will inspire other Genesis brand spaces around the world.
Following the flagship G90 and G80, its variant G80 Sport, which was unveiled at the 2016 Busan International Motor Show in early June, will start selling in Korea later this year. With the launch of G70 scheduled next year, the Genesis brand’s fascinating product line-up will keep expanding.
