By CARSIFU | 2 April 2023

SANTA MONICA, California: The opening of Genesis Santa Monica marks the brand’s fifth standalone retail facility in the United States and first in California.

Genesis Santa Monica is the fifth of many planned standalone retail facilities for Hyundai Motor's global luxury brand in the United States.

Several more locations are currently under development with additional openings planned this year.

With a growing range of award-winning models — including G70, G80, and G90 sedans, along with GV60, GV70, and GV80 SUVs — Genesis aims to lead the age of electrification, starting with its electrified G80, GV60, and electrified GV70 models.

Genesis has stated its commitment to becoming an all-electric vehicle brand by 2030 and to pursuing carbon neutrality by 2035.

Genesis Santa Monica, located not far from Genesis Motor America’s U.S. headquarters, features an elegant showroom with an open floorplan showcasing Genesis’ award-winning lineup of vehicles.

Customers will enjoy a tailored purchase and unique benefits such as at-home test drives and vehicle delivery to their residence or place of business.

Every Genesis comes with a complimentary three-year subscription to Service Valet.

This means never dropping off, picking up or wasting time with vehicle maintenance.

With Service Valet, you can schedule service online or via the mobile app and have your vehicle picked up wherever and whenever you choose.

You’ll also receive a loaner vehicle and select when and where your Genesis will be returned.

Genesis Santa Monica is owned and operated by dealer principal Mike Sullivan and the LAcarGuy Family of Dealerships.

“We are pleased to celebrate the continued progress we are making in redefining our retail experience as we open our first standalone facility in California,” said Claudia Marquez, chief operating officer of Genesis Motor North America.

“Opening a dedicated showroom in a key market like West Los Angeles represents a significant milestone for the brand."

To celebrate the grand opening and give back to the community, Genesis Motor America and Genesis Santa Monica presented a $20,000 donation to the Boys and Girls Clubs of Santa Monica.

This charitable contribution marks the continuation of Genesis Gives, an initiative that supports STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts, mathematics) education, sports, and athletics programming for children.
