Reports have indicated that the Genesis car will live on under the G80 badge, while the flagship Equus will be named the G90. A mystery G70 is also in the works and was part of a filing with the European Office for Harmonization in the Internal Market (OHIM) on November 9th.
But those names are only the tip of the iceberg. If filings in July with the Korea Intellectual Property Rights Information Service (KIPRIS) are any indication, a G60 (could this finally be a BMW 3 Series rival?) is in the works as well.
And it won’t be a stand-alone model either. Hyundai also filed for trademarks for the GC60, GT60 and GV60. Then there’s the GC64, GT64 and G65 (it’s not just for boxy Benzes any more).
A similar nomenclature exists for the G70, G80 and G90 models suggesting Hyundai is at least considering a wide-array of new models for its new Genesis luxury division.
The new G90 is expected to debut in the near future in Korean and could make an appearance at the North American International Auto Show in January. When it does arrive, look for it to be powered by Hyundai’s award-winning 5.0-liter V8 as well as an all-new twin-turbo 3.3-liter V6.
