2019 NY Auto Show: Genesis Mint Concept is even funkier than the BMW i3

Perfect for Sweden not so much for AZ with all the glass.

Since the BMW i3 debuted, there havenít really been any funky EVs to go on sale. In fact, with cars like the Chevy Bolt, Audi e-tron and Mercedes-Benz EQC, it seems as if most automakers are shying away from radical designs and trying to keep their EVs more sedate looking. So seeing this new Genesis Mint Concept is a sight for bored eyes.

This new Genesis Mint Concept is a compact EV hatchback that brings even more funkiness than the BMW i3 does and it just recently debuted at the NY Auto Show. Admittedly, itís just a concept, so it should be funky. But if anything even similar to this makes its way to production, it will be very funky indeed.

Despite it being odd, itís actually very good looking. It sports smooth, sweeping body lines with sharp looking headlights and a fun-looking trunk. It has a bit of a futuristic Honda CRX look to it and thatís cool.

On the inside, itís even weirder. It has a floating dashboard, a square steering wheel and even a front benchseat which angles toward the driver when the door opens. Itís very cool, though obviously most of that cabin will never make production.

You can tell itís a far-out concept car from its spec-sheet, though. Genesis claims a 350 kW fast charging, which is unheard of at the moment, and 200 miles of range. While the range isnít unusual, that level of charging speed is just not realistic today. In fact, the fastest charging EV on the market is the Audi e-tron, with 150 kW charging capabilities.

Am I missing something here ? Even 150KW charging would require 625A at 240V. or do they mean a total charge of 350KW (Hours ? Minutes ? Seconds ?) KW is a charge or discharge RATE. For storage CAPACITY you need one more dimension.

BTW my memory is erratic particularly for formulas so dimensional analysis saved me in college.
