Speaking about the upcoming models, Aston Martin's chief creative officer Luc Donckerwolke said that the EVs won't be defined by their physical footprints, but their interior proportions. He said that the E-GMP platform will give electric cars a longer wheelbase and more space inside the cabin. Hence, these Evs cannot be compared with the current ICE lineup.

He also highlighted that the Genesis GV60’s cabin is larger than an ICE car of similar size. he also said that in the future, flat-floored platforms will have a scale-up effect on Genesis' models. As a result, the all-electric successor to the outgoing Genesis GV80 will come larger inside, but not at the exterior.

Genesis is also expected to use the extended-wheelbase variant of the E-GMP platform as the production versions of recent Hyundai Seven and Kia EV9 SUV concepts. These cars will compete as flagship models from Audi, BMW and Mercedes-Benz.

One of the interesting models from Genesis could be last year's X concept, which could be positioned against Porsche Taycan. This will use the most potent motor configuration of the E-GMP architecture.
