Hyundai to make all luxury Genesis models electric by 2030

All new cars will be battery and fuel-cell equipped vehicles after 2025

Hyundai Motors unveiled in August the GV60, the first electric vehicle for its luxury Genesis brand.

SEOUL -- Hyundai Motor will stop selling gas-powered Genesis vehicles by the end of the decade and field an all-electric fleet for the luxury brand, the South Korean automaker said Thursday.

Starting in 2025, all new Genesis models put on the market will either be electric vehicles or fuel-cell vehicles. As Genesis accounts for just over 3% of Hyundai's overall vehicle sales, the company will usher in its switch to electrics starting from high-end vehicles.
