Hyundai's premium brand Genesis has sold more than 300,000 units worldwide since its launch in November 2015.
Hyundai on Sunday said it sold 71,411 Genesis sedans globally from January to November this year, taking its four-year cumulative sales to 302,573 units -- 215,840 abroad and 86,733 at home.
The flagship EQ900 full-size sedan, currently called G90, was the first model released under the Genesis brand in December 2015, followed by the G80 large sedan in 2016, and the G70 sports sedan in 2017.
The G80 has been the most popular model with 170,006 units sold. The G90 has sold 74,029 units and the G70 58,538.
The automaker took the brand to Australia, opening its first overseas showroom in downtown Sydney in June this year. It also recently opened a Chinese subsidiary for Genesis and is getting ready to launch it in the luxury car market there.
"We are about to release the first Genesis SUV, the GV80," a Hyundai spokesperson said. "Sales will increase significantly as a totally revamped version of the G80 will be launched in the first half of next year and the GV70 compact SUV in the second half."
