Presented on Wednesday at Hudson Yards, the Mint is a two-door, two-passenger city vehicle meant as an... accessory.

Yet the Mint is one of the most coherent concepts we've seen in a while, with everything fitting together as if this was a one-designer project.

The traditional rear hatch has been replaced with "scissor-style" side openings bringing further practicality to the model. The design features quad lamps in front and back to stretch the corners of the vehicle, and there are top light elements that form wraparound light bands.

Talking about the auto, Manfred Fitzgerald, Executive Vice President and Global Head of the Genesis Brand said, "As a brand, Genesis embraces progressive design values, and the Mint Concept reinforces this commitment from a previously undiscovered perspective".

Though it's incredibly compact, the trunk storage space is relatively ample, as the concept "takes advantage of every cubic inch of its interior".

The interior still feels fairly open with a leather bench - it makes use of the tiny space. Genesis has surrounded the wheel with six small information screens, while the bench seat is also able to swivel.
