Genesis car sales in the U.S. in the first quarter of 2024 amounted to 14,777 units (up 7.3% year-over-year). Hyundai's luxury arm also improved its all-electric car sales, but only slightly.

According to the data released by the broader Hyundai Motor Company, Genesis's EV sales amounted to 992 in Q1, 6% more than a year ago. It represents 6.7% of the Genesis' total volume, compared to 6.8% a year earlier.

Genesis sells a few hundred EVs a month

In 2023, Genesis sold in the U.S. more than 6,400 all-electric cars. Increasing this number this year might be difficult.

Genesis offers three all-electric models. The Genesis Electrified G80, Genesis Electrified GV70, and the E-GMP-based Genesis GV60 (a cousin of the Hyundai Ioniq 5).

One thing in common of all three cars is that they sell only at a three-digit volume per quarter. In Q1 it was 104 G80 EVs, 415 GV70 EVs and 473 GV60s. Unfortunately for Genesis, only the Electrified GV70 noted a year-over-year growth (from a low base a year ago).

This is a bit worrying, especially when combined with the brand's global EV wholesale shipments decline in Q1 (by 53% year-over-year to 2,741).

  • Genesis GV60: 473 (down 8%)
  • Total: 992 (up 6%) and 6.7% share

It's hard to be optimistic for Genesis EV sales this year. There is a chance for growth, but it seems that it will not be easy in 2024.

Genesis' least expensive EV model is the GV60, which starts at an MSRP of $52,000. The Electrified GV70 starts at $66,450, but despite being locally produced, it currently does not qualify for the $7,500 federal tax credit. The incentive might be available through leasing. In the case of the Electrified G80, the base price is $74,375.
