Well, this is it. The 89th Geneva International Motor Show is here and Volkswagen has a lot to share with the world at this premiere auto show. Focusing on electric mobility and performance (like duh?), the German automaker is premiering four vehicles: ID. Buggy Concept, the 8th generation Passat, T-Roc R, and Touareg V8 TDI. But really, the star of the show is no doubt the matte Fern Green ID. Buggy that we somehow have a feeling it won’t happen. Continue reading Volkswagen All-Electric ID. Buggy, Passat Variant R-Line And More
Nissan has unveiled a somewhat Volvo-ish-looking electric concept at the on-going North America International Auto Show in Detroit. Called Nissan IMs EV Sports Sedan, it is an all-electric, all-wheel drive electric car that boasts a unique “premier seat” 2+1+2 seat arrangement and full autonomous drive capability. The Nissan IMs EV Sports Sedan is driven by dual electric motors that yield 483 horses and 590 lb-ft (800 Nm) of torque, and this electric drivetrain is paired to a 115-kWh battery that affords 380 miles (612 km) range on a single charge.

We posted a handful of what if a certain automaker made this and that (like this one HERE). Well, I guess we don’t have to do that for Suzuki because, the Japanese marque already dreamed up some concepts for its all-new compact off-road, the 2019 Suzuki Jimny, and it will bring them to next month’s 2019 Tokyo Auto salon, along with a Suzuki Swift Sports Yellow Rev concept hot hatch. Clearly, the two Jimny concepts had our attention because, Jimny. Continue reading Suzuki Had Us Going Ga-Ga With A Jimny Pickup Truck And SUV Concepts
Over here at Mikeshouts, we love to let our imaginations run wild and so, when a hat tip that pitched the idea of what if a luxury marque like Rolls-Royce made other type of class of vehicles outside of its comfort zone, we sit up with eyebrows raised and asked ourselves, yeah, what if? We are totally intrigued by the idea of what if Rolls-Royce were to produce a 4×4, a crossover, a minivan and even a Big Rig? Or what if Rolls-Royce coupe were made like a classic sport car? Continue reading What If Rolls-Royce Made A Big Rig, Minivan, Or… A Batmobile?
This is Peugeot e-LEGEND CONCEPT, the French automaker’s vision of the future of driving that’s boring. Peugeot said it has a “realistic and radically modern template.” In other words, it is car with a form that may materialize, eventually, unlike many such “vision” concepts. I am talking about you BMW and Mercedes-Benz. Anyways, regarding the look… while I agree it looks absolutely “realistic,” but I can’t help but to see Ford Mustang in it. Come on. Don’t tell me you did not see the same. That is not say that it isn’t gorgeous. It certainly is. Continue reading Is It Just Me Or The Peugeot e-Legend Concept Does Look Like A Mustang?
Mercedes-Benz has unveiled a super cool urban mobility concept called Mercedes-Benz Vision URBANETIC. Mercedes-Benz Vision URBANETIC is essentially a platform described as a “completely new mobility concept for on-demand, efficient, comfortable and sustainable mobility.” So yeah, it is bus/van, alright and it, being a ride of the future, is electric drive and it is also autonomous. A mobile app will allow passengers of the future to book a ride on this fit for Minority Report mass transportation. Though it can’t climb wall and drop you straight at your apartment, yet. Continue reading Vision URBANETIC Is Mercedes-Benz’s Bold Vision Of Future Mobility
Afraid of flying? Well, fret not because, in future you may be able to embrace the safety of the land and travel in absolute comfort in an autonomous car like the newly unveiled Volvo 360c Autonomous Concept Car which will make you feel like you are traveling in a $20,000 per flight suite on an Airbus A380. It is all-electric and fully autonomous, obviously, and it has a panoramic sweeping glass dome so you can count the stars, lying down, as the car hits the road. Continue reading Volvo’s New Autonomous Concept Is Basically A Mobile Bedroom
Personally, I love and hate concept cars. If you have been following this blog, you probably realized that we hardly feature as many concept cars these days compared to when we just started because, they are like fairy tales and you know how fairy tales were: they never came true and it can be very disappointing. But this time, I have to make an exception despite knowing very well a car like the Mercedes-Benz Vision EQ Silver Arrow won’t make it to production. Continue reading Mercedes-Benz Unveiled Futuristic EV Called Vision EQ Silver Arrow
Tesla electric cars are sleek, but you know what really pleases my eyes? High-tech cars that take on a retro look. Having said that, you bet that I am all up for this Kalashnikov CV-1 Electric Supercar Concept. Yes. That is the Kalashnikov, the Russian company best known for its super robust assault rifle, AK-47. Kalashnikov now not only wants to make mecha robot and supply electric motorcycle to the military, it also want to have a piece of the consumer market with this decidedly retro-licious, pastel baby blue electric ride which it calls CV-1 and it has Tesla in its cross hair. Continue reading Kalashnikov Wants To Take On Tesla With This Decidedly Retro Electric Car
SUV has been around for ages, but it is until recent years, luxury car brands began diving into the SUV segment. Looking at the trend, these luxury marques could be making MPV, AKA minivan, soon. Or maybe not. But one thing I am sure is, brands like Rolls-Royce, Ferrari, Maybach and the likes won’t be making camper vans, like ever. Why? I don’t know. Perhaps, it just makes zero sense for them to do so. However, someone with a lot of imagination have imagined what if those brands actually did make camper vans and the results are rather bizarre in some cases.
