Ford will be displaying their concept minivan, the BMX B-Max. According to Ford, they will start production at the end of next year, with sales expected to begin in early 2012. This new challenger has five seats and cool rear sliding doors.
The American marque is trying their luck to go head-on with Europe’s best selling small minivan Opel/Vauxhall Meriva. However, this M-Max will be produced exclusively for the European market only.
This year, Honda will not be having any futuristic concept cars, as they are focusing on their EV or Electric Version concept car. It looks like it’s going to be a Electric Version Fit (or Jazz).
This Fit EV will be introduced in 2012 in the United States and Japan.. *yawn.. E what again? Why go backwards to electric cars when they have already saved the world with their hydrogen fuel cell creation, the FCX Clarity?
Hyundai will have a.. car, at their booth. This car.
Yup. That’s all. Nothing interesting. Next!
Jaguar will be transporting 550 horses to Geneva. All packed in a Jaguar XKR-S.
According to Jaguar’s new Global Brand Director, the XKR-S is a bold and exciting new model for Jaguar. 550 horsepower, 502 pound-feet of torque, a top-speed of 300km per hour. 0-100kph in 4.2 seconds. We get what he means.
Kia released the first sketch of the brand new Rio early this year. Then we said, “This is what we’ve been looking for, good job Kia!”.
A month later, the official Rio images were released.
What’s the point of sketching when the final design is not what’s sketched earlier?
Lamborghini will unveil the Murcielago replacement, Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4. Powered by an all-new 6.5-liter V12 engine, this mean machine produces 700-horsepower, running on all wheels.
This new model is lighter and more fuel efficient than the car its predecessor, thanks to an improved powertrain and a new carbon fiber body and chassis.
Land Rover is going green this year. They are unveiling a diesel hybrid plug-in prototype called the Range_e.
Based on a Range Rover Sport, it is fitted with Land Rover’s latest plug-in hybrid driveline. The power comes from a 3.0-liter turbodiesel V-6 combined with an electric motor, along with a 8-speed ZF automatic transmission.
