The Gen2: celebrating 20 years of the digital evolution of elevators

We disrupted the industry with our revolutionary Gen2 elevator 20 years ago — a revolution that continues. Today’s Gen2 is smarter and more connected, reimagined to meet the needs of our customers and passengers in the digital age. With its smooth, quiet ride, space-saving design and energy-efficient operation, the Gen2 is our bestselling elevator ever with more than 1 million units sold. Wherever people are on the move, you’ll find the Gen2 from Otis.
