Volkswagen I.D. Vizzion

Volkswagen’s mission to mop up the stain of diesel gate continues apace with the unveiling of its fourth electric I.D. concept car, the Vizzion. As with the I.D. hatchback, I.D. Buzz camper and I.D. Crozz SUV, the Vizzion will eventually become a production reality, contributing to VW’s target of selling one million electric vehicles per year by 2025 (as well as 5 million internal combustion and hybrid cars).

This 5-meter long saloon is the flagship of the range and makes do without a steering wheel. That’s because VW envisages it as a level five autonomous vehicle, meaning that in theory, it’ll be able to drive from door to door with the only intervention from its occupants coming in the form of voice and gesture control.

Rimac CTwo

The CTwo, or Concept two, from Rimac, is arguably too close to a production-ready car to justify its place on this list but sneaks in on the basis that it is still relatively early days in its development (customer cars are said to still be two years away).

Although you might not be familiar with Rimac, there’s a chance you’ve used some of its technology in a car from the likes of Jaguar Land Rover, Aston Martin or Renault. It is through supplying such companies with electric equipment such as infotainment and batteries that this Croatian start-up is able to fund the development and build of its CTwo electric hypercar.

As with the firm’s original car, the Concept_One of 2011, the numbers behind the C_Two are mind-boggling, with the electric motors producing 1,914bhp and 2,300NM of torque, which with a one-foot rollout to ensure maximum traction is enough to fire this car from 0-62mph in just 1.95 seconds. The top speed meanwhile is a claimed 258mph.

Porsche Mission E Cross Turismo

Porsche is stretching its model range into all-new territory with the slightly clumsily named Mission E Cross Turismo. It’s essentially a development of next year’s Mission E production saloon, but given the shooting brake rear end treatment that we’ve also seen on the Panamera Sport Turismo plus a raised ride height and plastic body, cladding to lend it more of an off-road feel.

Although a concept at present, Porsche describes this car as using ‘elements that are close to series production’, with a likely on sale date a couple of years after the Mission E, thus expanding Porsche’s battery electric line-up.

If that happens it’ll use the same powertrain as the Mission E, which means 592bhp from two electric motors, one per axle to give the E Cross Turismo four-wheel drive and a 0-62mph time of fewer than 3.5 seconds. There’s also induction charging capability and an 800V rapid charge that’ll allow a full battery charge in just 15 minutes, yielding a range of around 250 miles.

Renault EZ-GO

Even by Renault’s occasionally wacky standards, the EZ-GO concept seems somewhat bizarre. An enormous, 5.2-metre long autonomous pod with a lifting glass roof and floor-level ramp system that allows passengers to walk on board, it is pitched as being somewhere in between a bus and a minicab in terms of fares and, says Renault, previews the kind of ‘Robo-taxis’ it will build by around 2022 with commercial use in mind.

Top speed is limited to 30mph and there’s four-wheel steering to improve manoeuvrability, while inside you’ll find room for six passengers on a u-shaped bench inside the car, as well as a large floor space for wheelchairs or buggies, all of which reinforces the EZ-GO’s role of moving small groups of people around predetermined inner-city routes.

BMW M8 Gran Coupe

While the majority of Geneva concept cars are powered by electricity, BMW’s handsome M8 Gran Coupe shows there’s still life in petrol power. To that end, it is likely to use the 4.4-litre turbocharged V8 from the M5 saloon, so expect a power output of around 600bhp as well as four-wheel-drive when the car is launched sometime in 2020.

The 4 door Gran Coupe will be the third and final model to be spun off the relaunched 8-series range, following coupe and convertible variants. Shown here in M8 guise, it’ll also be available in lower-powered versions, while among its biggest rivals will be the new Mercedes AMG GT four-door, also on show at Geneva.

  5. If it’s “subscribe to my mailing list”, that needs to be your focus. Everything else will distract readers from doing the one thing you want them to do. Same thing with sharing on social media.

But if it’s yours, there absolutely are things you can do to encourage them.
    Thank you! I’m so glad you enjoyed it. Thank you for the kind words.

  8. I was especially interested because it seems like blog comments are rare today compared with when I started… Getting comments at all – let alone good ones – is really hard. I realize it’s a different topic, but what do you do to encourage more commenting in the first place?
    Thanks for sharing the post with your group and on social media. Appreciate it!

  9. Yes, know matter how much you know or think you know about blogging, most of us are only just scratching the surface. That’s where great sites like Smart Blogger come into play. Read, absorb, and ask questions. Wash, rinse, and repeat.
