Hyundai’s luxury brand, Genesis, has added another vehicle to its expanding range with the unveiling of the big EQ900L this week in Korea.

This debut follows spy photos published by CarAdvice late last year that revealed the long-wheelbase form of the G90 in testing, just days after the regular version debuted online.

Australian fans of the brand may be disappointed to learn that while there is one Genesis model on offer here, this latest addition to the range will not appear in any local dealerships.

In essence, the G90L is a stretched version of Genesis’ flagship luxury sedan, the G90. A modification that adds just shy of 300 millimetres to its length.

Being a luxury vehicle, all that extra space has been spent creating an even more extravagant experience, featuring an array of high-tech toys including first-class reclining seats, a centre console stretching the length of the cabin and a rear-seat entertainment system. Passengers are also treated to high-grade leather and ambient lighting.

Doing service under the bonnet will be a 5.0-litre V8 engine producing 313kW of power and 519Nm of torque.

The G90L will be priced at US$125,000 ($165,300). In comparison, its main rival, the Mercedes-Maybach S600, costs US$189,350 ($250,000).

There is still no word on an official release date for the G90L, however, a US and Korean launch will likely occur in late 2016.

Similarly, no word has be given on a local launch date for the standard Genesis G90.
