Will the new G80 come with new engine options or will it only come with the same 311-hp V-6 engine under the current Hyundai Genesis Sedan? Maybe the new 3.3-liter twin-turbo V-6 that will be offered with the G90?

With the growth in hybrid powertrains throughout the industry, the G80 is the perfect candidate for it, especially when it comes to fleet sales.

Probably not. Depends on how they plan to approach the new European emissions standard.

Hard to say. Keep their higher end cars gas and hybrid only and give the lower performance cars the all electric option?

Hmmm, too big of a stretch for an all electric Genesis?
If they do go that direction I can see them wanting to give some away as fleet to companies that can really put it in the spot light, brands like Uber. Just imagine what that will be like.

That seems like a more likely approach so they can make electric vehicles affordable. Probably most the Genesis will see is a plug in hybrid.

Besides that, I would also like to see the 3.3-liter twin-turbo V-6 but they'll probably de-tune it a bit of the G80 won't compete with the G90.

There will be a market for a big EV sedan but Hyundai might make a one off model just for electric like what some car makers have done with other types of vehicles so that's one thing to consider. The other is the added cost, making the Genesis an EV is more cost effective.

Looks like there's going to be a new engine available for the G80. It was spied testing with the 2.2-liter CRDi unit that's already being used in the Hyundai Santa Fe and Kia Stinger. Not sure if it'll be tuned for more or less power, but even the same as what the Stinger produces is fine with me.
