The Geneva Motor Show is an annual show with a rich, rich tradition. Dating back to 1905, this Swiss standard has been churning out the hottest models, concept rides and overall mechanical masterpieces for over a century. Back in the early days the show was regarded as a level playing field, giving automakers from around the world a neutral site to display their cars and let the public decide.
Every March the show kicks off and these are the cars folks are buzzing about in 2019.
Honda E Prototype
The 2017 Honda Urban EV Concept was a killer, and it’s nearly there with this production-ready E Prototype. Look for this Honda to hit the market, otherwise we’ll be talking about yet another version come 2020.
VW Touareg TDI
A diesel-powered Touareg is coming to a town near you. Sporting a powerful V8, the 4.0-litre twin-turbo is a beast at 419bhp. Not a whole lot different than last year, the Touareg is still a heck or a ride.
Bat-mobile anyone? The Agera RS is unlike anything you’ve seen, unless of course you’re privy to the Bat-mobile. Christian von Koenigsegg confirmed to the press early this year that this car is a go. When is now the question.
Audi Q4 e-tron
From a pure aesthetics standpoint there might not be a catchierlooking car this year in Geneva. The sketches that have been released are truly eye-popping and this concept is expected to make it to showrooms in 2021.
Didn’t expect to see Peugeot, did you? The new 208 is sleek and a hybrid version comes with 4WD. Still a concept for the foreseeablefuture, if Peugeot can bring something this attractive to market,we’ll need to re-think our perception of the brand.
It’s now official, the Koenigsegg has some competition. Put this car in a tunnel and you wouldn’t be able to see it. Black on black, with even more black, this is an EV hyper–car that is well over $1 million. Suffice it to say there will be plenty of suiters.
Stay tuned for Part II …
