VW reveals an I.D. Crozz Concept which looks pretty cool

Volkswagen gives us a preview of what may be our future cars in the next decade or two. Their latest concept, the I.D. Crozz, is an electric crossover that the automaker unveiled after introducing the hatchback and minivan versions of the I.D.

From the looks of it, the car has a minimalistic design. The curves and creases of the body paired with sleek headlights and illuminated VW badges add to its futuristic design. A pair of all-LED taillights that extend to the rear fenders then give it a unique touch.

The engineers are really focusing on autonomous driving. When “I.D. Pilot” mode is activated, the computers will analyze everything in the car. The adaptive LED headlights will be activated, along with the interior and exterior ambient lighting. The fully autonomous mode will even retract the steering wheel into the dashboard for more cabin space.

Hi-tech Audi E-Tron Sportback concept has over 200 LED lights

Two years ago at the 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show, Audi presented the E-Tron Quattro to the public. This gave us an idea that they will soon be producing crossovers. The Quattro will be moving into production by 2018, and a year later, a coupe version of it will follow. This crossover-coupe they call the E-Tron Sportback made its debut at the Auto Shanghai in China just this week, along with two other electric concepts from competitors: the VW I.D. Crozz and the Skoda Vision E.

Similar to Volkswagen I.D. Crozz, Audi’s E-Tron Sportback also features light emitting diodes. The four-rings brand not only equips this new concept with full LED headlights and taillights. It also gets an illuminated Audi logo. Instead, it is supposed to have approximately 250 extra LEDs located around the front bumper, precisely on both sides of the corporate singleframe grille. But these lights do not only have one purpose - they are made to communicate with other cars on the road forming different light patterns - from shapes to numbers as seen on its concept video debut.

The E-Tron Sportback isn’t just about smart LEDs. At 4.9 meters long, 1.98 meters wide, and 1.53 meters tall, this coupe has a strong electric powertrain that can produce as much as 430 horsepower (320 kilowatts), and can reach a peak of 496 horsepower (370 kilowatts) when the boost mode is activated. Taking only 4.5 seconds, this little EV can accelerate up to 62 miles per hour (100 kilometers per hour) from a standstill.

Photos of MG E-Motion Concept leaked ahead of Shanghai debut

Despite the MG E-Motion Concept set to be unveiled in a few days at the 2017 Shanghai Auto Show, it appears that the internet once again managed to get the upper hand. Albeit rather grainy, a set of official images showing MG’s newest four-seater coupe has been released on the World Wide Web.

Images show that the exterior appears to have a rather stylish design especially with the use of butterfly doors and a more pronounced grille in the front. Clearly inspired from that of Mercedes-Benz, the grille carries on its center the MG badge and based on the photos, appears to light up mainly due to LEDs. At the top portion and placed at the corner of the grille are the sleek headlights which look similar to the ones on Mazda. Still, the headlights give the vehicle a more high-tech look and this feel is enhanced further by having cameras instead of the usual door mirrors.

Fitted to it are the alloy two-tone wheels and if we look up, we see the thick side skirts above which is the panoramic roof. Going to the rear, viewers will likely be surprised to see what may be the biggest diffusers placed in a car. Still on this section, there are the sweptback taillights with a spoiler lip cleanly integrated. Much like the bumper in the front, the rear bumper also has the “E-Motion” lettering placed on it. This serves two purposes with the first being that it emphasizes the name of this mode. The second is that it drives home the point that the model comes with an all-electric powertrain.

LYNK & CO previews 03 Concept at 2017 Shanghai Auto Show

LYNK & CO, through its Senior Vice President Alain Visser, gave a preview of what to expect from the brand with the preview of two new models during an exclusive event held in Shanghai. The company added that this will signal the official start of its launch to the Chinese market. After that, it will make the official premiere during the 2017 Shanghai Auto Show, scheduled to begin this April 19.

An estimated 800 guests were invited to be part of the preview where VP Visser confirmed as well that the company will be offering home delivery services and online sales. However, LYNK & CO also said that it will be offering a subscription model. Through this, the company hopes it will have the flexibility of ensuring that the owner and the user experience will be on the level as that of the expectation of a new generation of customers. These new customers are different in a sense that they generally utilize smartphone app service and are accustomed to the level of convenience it offers.

During the event, VP Visser shared that with just five months as a company, it has managed to come out with two models. This proves, according to him, that it is on the way of fulfilling its promise of releasing a wide array of vehicles that display high quality, show the brand’s unique identity, and that are fitted with unparalleled connectivity and technology as standard. He went on and said that to sweeten the deal, the company will be including a lifetime warranty for each model. In addition, connectivity will have free data traffic. With this, he continued, the company is highlighting its commitment to challenge the auto industry’s traditional business practice.

Mercedes-Benz has unveiled at the Shanghai Auto Show a new design study of the next compact premium sedan – the new Mercedes-Benz Concept A Sedan.

Audi has been delighting fans and critics alike with teaser videos of its newest concept fitted with numerous LEDs. The German automaker is back to show off a more “substantial” preview of its latest creation – now complete with a name and a few adjacent sketches, enough to reveal its body style and a few exterior features. Ready to know more about it? Here goes.

We’ve come to know that Audi’s latest creation is called the Audi E-Tron Sportback Concept. However, despite being called a “Sportback,” we’re expecting this concept car to be a crossover-coupe combination. From the photos released by Audi themselves, we can conclude that the E-Tron Sportback Concept isn’t just a typical hatchback like the A3 Sportback as it’s something far better.

As expected (and as depicted in design teaser sketches), the concept is fitted with a set of oversized wheels. Its heavily sloped roofline ending is reminiscent of a coupe but accentuated by an interesting spoiler which features two arches on both sides. The E-Tron Sportback does without the conventional side mirrors (also an expected move), with cameras on its stead, giving the concept car a sleeker look.

Nissan has unveiled at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show a new concept vehicle which design and advance technology provides a glimpse of what customers can expected from Nissan’s next generation of crossovers. This new showcar – the all-new new Nissan IMQ concept vehicle – could be considered as an amalgamation of Japanese heritage with modern human-centric technology.

Design to cater to the European market, the new Nissan IMQ concept boasts of electrified propulsion, although the car itself isn't an electric vehicle. It features the next generation of e-POWER, which a 100-percent electric motor drive system allows for instant, linear acceleration. This system – designed to deliver 250 kW of max output and 700 Nm of peak torque -- is an evolution of the e-POWER technology found in the Nissan Note and Serena models in Japan. The new system directs output via a new multi-motor all-wheel-drive system. By combining e-POWER and AWD, the IMQ concept could excel even in low-grip conditions.

Aside from the next generation of the e-POWER, the new IMQ comes fitted an advanced prototype version of Nissan's ProPILOT driving assistance system and the carmaker’s Invisible-to-Visible technology that was revealed at the CES 2019. This new Invisible-to-Visible (I2V) technology allows drivers see around corners, as well as visualize information about traffic jams and determine optional routes.

Alfa Romeo is signaling with pure clarity its intent to enter the compact utility vehicle segment with a new concept that is currently being displayed at the 2019 Geneva International Motor Show in Switzerland. This new concept car – the new Alfa Romeo Tonale – combines practicality, dynamism, style as well as electrification.

The Alfa Romeo Tonale show car essentially marks a new milestone for the brands. It is the brand’s first compact SUV, albeit in concept form. Moreover, the Tonale is Alfa Romeo’s first entry into the world of electric cars, although in plug-in hybrid configuration. For customers, the new Tonale serves as preview for the Italian carmaker’s up and coming CUV.

Alfa Romeo actually announced last year its product road map for the period covering 2018 to 2022. Aside from its current offerings of six models – MiTo, Giulietta, Giulia, Stelvio, 4C Coupe and 4C Spider – the brand is planning to cover 71 percent of the premium market with the new Giulietta MCA, the production version of the Tonale, Giulia MCA (LWB), Stelvio MCA (LWD), GTV and the 8C.

Audi has finally taken the veil off its latest electrified creation at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show – the new the Audi Q4 e-tron concept. This new concept car is a compact four-door SUV that basically provides a good look at the German premium carmaker’s fifth batter electric vehicle that would enter the automotive market by the end of 2020.

Wrapped in “Solar Sky” paint finish, the exterior of the new Audi Q4 e-tron concept is only constrained by its compact dimensions pegged at 4.59 meters in length, 1.90 meters in width and 1.61 meters in height, with a wheelbase of 2.77 meters. It is almost impossible not to indentify the Q4 e-tron concept as an Audi, as the prototype is marked by on the front end by Singleframe with the four rings.

Furthermore, it is also fairly easy to distinguish the concept as an electric Audi e-tron as it features upright octagonal frame instead of a traditional radiator grille. Large inlets can be found extending from below the concept’s two matrix LED headlights to the front apron.

It looks like Aston Martin will soon be following up its Valkyrie and Valkyrie AMR Pro offerings with a third hypercar. This comes as Aston Martin presented the design concept for the new AM-RB 003 at the 2019 Geneva Motor Showin Switzerland.

Its terms of styling and aerodynamics, the new AM-RB 003 shares the same fundamental philosophy with the Aston Martin Valkyrie. This is evident on the pronounced front keel and large rear diffuser. In addition, the AM-RB 003 features a variable airfoil that spans across the rear wing. This variable airfoil is made possible by a new technology from FlexSys Inc. – FlexFoil.

With this new system in place, the downforce AM-RB 003 can be changed without changing the physical angle of the entire element. This new system also virtually gets rid of the turbulence and the associated drag increase in present active wing designs.

It has been three years since Toyota’s luxury division, Lexus, unveiled the LC Coupe at the 2016 North American International Auto Show (NAIAS), which is also known as the Detroit Auto Show. Now at the same venue, Lexus is presenting to the global public an open -top study of the LC Coupe – the Lexus LC Convertible Concept.

As the luxury carmaker puts it, the Lexus LC Convertible Concept suggests future direction of its LC flagship. The premium carmaker calls the LC Convertible Concept as an aspirational halo vehicle for the entire Lexus lineup. In terms of looks, the LC Convertible Concept is essentially the LC Coupe without a fixed roof. For three years, not a few have imagine how the LC Coupe would appear if it become a convertible. The LC Convertible Concept is the realization of this imagination in metal.

As Tadao Mori, Chief Designer of the Lexus LC Convertible Concept, quipped, the show car re-imagines the unmistakable design of the LC Coupe as a future convertible. He added that the LC Convertible Concept is a blend all the best aspects of the original LC Coupe, but with the dynamic design of a convertible.

According to the German premium carmaker, the production version of the Audi e-tron GT concept is set to arrive in around two years. This means that could expect the third member of the e-tron family by late 2020, with initial deliveries set in early 2021. It follows the Audi e-tron SUV as well as the Audi e‑tron Sportback scheduled for 2019.

As designed, the Audi e-tron GT concept features the proportions of a classic Gran Turismo – flat and wide with a long wheelbase – as reflected on its dimensions of 4.96 meters (16.3 ft.) in length, 1.96 meters (6.4 ft.) in width and 1.38 meters (4.5 ft.) in height. Its overall shape is marked by a gently sloping roofline extending into the rear, a cabin tapering strongly toward the rear, well-sculpted wheel arches and shoulders as well as a flat floor that is unusual for an EV. The e-tron GT concept is wrapped in a new exterior color kinetic dust, which is a warm, dark color similar to titanium.

The Audi e-tron GT concept boasts of new arrow-shaped front section marked by the hallmark Audi Singleframe with a more horizontal architecture -- the upper half featuring a cover in body color. The grille is flanked by matrix LED headlights with laser high beam as well as animated function. The large front air inlets helps in effective cooling of the assemblies, battery and brakes while the hood echoes Audi’s Aicon and PB18 e-tron show cars.

Carlex Design isn't a beginner with regards to tuning the Mercedes-Benz X-Class. In fact, it has even created a version with Maybach-like appearance and features. It has also created Off-Road-focused and Urban-tailored versions. Now, Carlex Design seems to be not contented with how far it has gone with the X-Class and is now presenting a new concept design for the luxury SUV from Mercedes.

Indeed, the Mercedes-Benz X-Class represents the luxury side of pickup trucks. While offering a drive that is comparable to a sports utility vehicle, the X-Class also delivers a smooth, comfortable ride that is expected of luxurious vehicles. Furthermore, it is laden with features usually found in premium cars. But at Carlex Design, the X-Class can be turned into luxurious 6x6 beast off the road. This can be well seen on the new X-Class Exy 6x6 Concept by Carlex Design.

The X-Class Exy 6x6 Concept is essentially the X-Class evolved into a whole new luxurious beast. It is much different from Carlex Design’s previous re-imaginations of Mercedes’ luxury pickup. The concept pickup has six wheels – two wheels more than a standard X-Class and previous Carlex Design X-Class creations. This also meant an extra axle on the rear section of this X-Class 6x6. The addition of two wheels naturally resulted to an extended bed, allowing this conversion of the X-Class to load and carry a greater volume of cargo.

Imagining the future of automotive luxury more than three decades from now seems to be a daunting task. It would be hard for a typical person imagine such future without having the sense of vision and an eye for design. But for students at the Royal College of Arts in London, imagining how automotive luxury would look like in the future is their true calling.

In a dynamic collaboration, Bentley and Royal College of Arts (RCA) sought how the automotive luxury could be defined in 2050, or more than 30 years from now. The collaboration asked student at the world renowned RCA to imagine a truly luxurious Grand Touring experience for the future, by employing elements of physical materiality, technology and craftsmanship – all of which refuse to die even this era of virtual and digital world.

Interestingly, the current Design Director at Bentley was a graduate at the RCA. Stefan Sielaff, an alumnus of the RCA’s renowned Automotive Design program, remarked that the collaboration challenged millennial students for their vision of the automotive future, as laden with luxury.

Just last month, Porsche unveiled the new 935 during the “Rennsport Reunion” motorsport event at Laguna Seca Raceway in California. Featuring a body evoking the legendary Porsche 935/78, the 935 is definitely a race car you would want to drive in the track. Nonetheless, it isn't car you can just drive on the road from your garage to the track. After all, the 935 is a track-only race car and can’t be driven legally on the road.

The problem of getting a track-only race car from a garage to the circuit without circumventing any laws or local ordinances has already been solved a long time ago. To solve such a logistic issue, teams or carmakers have been using transporters, which can be large enough to accommodate more than one race car.

Such a situation is the main theme of one of the latest creative visual projects of Igor Shikitov, an automotive designer from Moscow, Russia. Posted at the Behance social creative site on October 3, 2018, Shikitov’s work was aptly titled “Volkswagen Renntransporter.” After all Porsche is now part of the Volkswagen Group.

It was only in June this year when Porsche unveiled the 911 Speedster Concept. Perhaps due to overwhelming response or just a part of its plans, the German sports maker has disclosed at the 2018 Paris Motor Show that it will be putting the Porsche 911 Speedster into production.

At the same time, Porsche unveiled at the event the second concept of the 911 Speedster. Essentially, the 911 Speedster Concept II and the 911 Speedster Concept are identical, with the differences being their paintwork and finishes as well as their wheels.

Both 911 Speedster concepts feature shorter window frame with a more inclined windscreen as well as shortened side windows – resulting to a stockier profile. Both concepts also come with a special rear cover made from carbon fiber, featuring a double bubble cover behind the front seats.
