Hyundai: There will be no convertible version of the Genesis Coupe

Hyundai Motor America has killed speculations and rumors that it will build a convertible version of the 2010 Hyundai Genesis Coupe. According to Miles Johnson, manager of product public relations, a Genesis Convertible was never in Hyundai’s pipeline.

“It’s never been in the plan,” Johnson told Inside Line. “There was some internal discussion early on, but since we unveiled the coupe in New York, there’s been no talk.”

Johnson said the coupe version of the Genesis was never buit to be a convertible and was made to be a global car. He said Koreans aren’t “down” with the idea of wind in your hair and there isn’t enough traction for Hyundai in the U.S. to offer a convertible. He said Hyundai has no plans to offer any convertible on any of its models in the near future.

The 2010 Hyundai Genesis Coupe will hit dealerships in March.
