Hyundai-Genesis-G80Genesis to be electrified successively: Hyundai intends to develop electrified models of its luxury brand Genesis from 2019. The news followed the Japanese carmaker’s announcement to work on a platform for electric vehicles only but that will take some time. However, Hyundai is optimistic to launch a first Genesis plug-in hybrid model by 2019 already and to have an all-electric version only two years later by 2021 as well. More details have not been provided though.

Workers call for Audi EV: Audi’s workers council demands to produce electric models not just in Brussels and Neckarsulm but also at the carmaker’s main plant in Ingolstadt. Their request is to make the core factory “fit for the future,” which Audi’s labour leaders obviously see in electrification. As reported, the VW brand selected the smaller site in German Neckarsulm for EV production from 2020 but intends to build the first of three planned EVs in Brussels from 2018.
