As the Geneva auto show gets under way in Switzerland, several automakers are rolling out new concepts, from the futuristic to the fun to the exotic.
The most prominent so far include the Kia Imagine small SUV concept that may presage an all-electric platform for the brand.
Italian design house Pininfarina also revealed its long-awaited Battista, a “hypercar,” that will be the first model designed and built by the new automaker that will bear the brand’s name.
And VW rolled out its new electric off-road beach buggy concept, the ID Buggy, along with a plan to share its upcoming, mass-produced MEB electric platform with other automakers.
Aston Martin plans to be one of the first automakers to introduce a new electric-car with a fast-charging 800-volt battery system. Now the company has revealed a new electric SUV under its even more exclusive Lagonda brand. The company plans to make Lagonda into a high-tech luxury alternative to Rolls Royce and Bentley—or perhaps Cadillac.
Finally, Hyundai is following in the footsteps of the Tesla Model 3, with a new app that will turn your smart phone into the car key.
