PostHeaderIcon Audi Has Finally Decided That It Wants to Compete Against Tesla

It looks like Audi wants to take a share from the small-electric SUV segment. This news comes just days after we heard that Volkswagen is also planning for a baby electric SUV under its I.D. line up. Audi plans to pit its product against the upcoming Tesla Model Y.With the way we’re hearing news of small SUVs being planned by automakers, it looks like electric sedans will die sooner than expected.

PostHeaderIcon 2020 Polestar 2 Performance EV Teased But Will It Be Able to Beat the 2019 Tesla Model 3?

Polestar’s automotive lineup is slowly taking shape after the Swedish automaker unveiled a teaser image of the Polestar 2 sedan. The image doesn’t show much of the car other than a birds-eye-view glimpse of the rear section. It’s probably the most we’ll be getting until the next teaser rolls around. What we know at this point is that the Polestar 2 will make its debut at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show as an electric sedan that will compete directly against the Tesla Model 3. Pricing for the Polestar 2 is expected to slot somewhere between $45,000 to $50,000.

PostHeaderIcon Hispano Suiza Prepares a Return With Electric Supercar

More than 50 years after going out of business, Hispano Suiza is poised to make a comeback in the auto industry with a new electric car that’s scheduled to debut at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show. Not much is known about the model, at least except for shadowy teaser that showcases retro-styled arches that harken back to some of the brand’s most famous works in the early part of the previous century. More details about the new Hispano Suiza electric supercar should come to light in the days and weeks leading up to the Geneva Motor Show this coming March.

PostHeaderIcon The 2020 BMW 3 Series Touring to Debut at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show in March

Just as the hype was dying down after the 2019 BMW 3 Series’ launch at the Paris Motor Show, BMW has reignited interest in its latest new model. As per a report from L’Automobile Magazine, the German automaker will be unveiling 3 Series Touring at the Geneva Motor Show in March of next year. Actually, it’s not that much of a surprise because the touring has been sold for almost as long as the sedan.

PostHeaderIcon Lamborghini Gallardo LP560-4

Although critics initially derided the Gallardo as a copout for the Italian automaker, offering two fewer cylinders and a smaller on-road presence than the rest of the lineup, the “baby Lambo” quickly silenced the naysayers by selling well over 7,000 units in its first five years of production. Its performance was so impressive, the higher-ups from Sant’Agata Bolognese decided to usher in a new go-faster version for 2008, upgrading the Gallardo with fresh aesthetics and improved performance. The result was dubbed the LP560-4, and once again, customers flocked to dealers, catapulting the nameplate to the top of Lambo’s list of all-time bestsellers.

PostHeaderIcon Seat Leon Cupra Evo 17

Although overshadowed by the Volkswagen Golf, its platform sibling, sales-wise, the Seat Leon has been the more powerful race car in various series around the world. The TCR is one of them, having been set up after Seat designed the Leon Cup Racer, also the car that was used as a template for aerodynamic regulations. The increasingly popular series is still dominated by the Leon, which received an update in 2017.

Renamed the Leon Cupra Evo 17, the Spanish race car is more aggressive than ever. The hatchback sports bigger wheel arches, just like the Volkswagen Golf GTI TRC, a massive rear wing, and the copper highlights we’ve seen on recently unveiled Cupra road models. The Leon will continue to race in the TCR International Series, where it will face competition from Audi, Ford, Honda, Hyundai, Opel, Volkswagen, and many more carmakers.

PostHeaderIcon Škoda Kodiaq Scout

The Skoda Kodiaq Scout represents a remarkable achievement for the Czech automaker. Lost in the madness that is the crossover and SUV segments, the Kodiaq Scout manages to create a little niche of its own. It’s not as premium as a BMW X1 or an Audi Q2. It doesn’t even have the status and name recall of volume models like the Honda CR-V and the Mazda CX-5.Instead, the Kodiaq Scout sits in a sweet point that covers the different needs customer have for the segment. Essentially, it’s compact SUV with enough space, functionality, and practicality. It even costs a pittance, at least relative to the other models already mentioned. You may not want to hear from Skoda, but the Kodiaq Scout is making a loud impression.

PostHeaderIcon Lotus Exige Type 49 and Type 79

The third-generation Lotus Exige is six years old as of 2018 and a bit long in the tooth. A brand-new model is underway, but the Brits are keeping things interesting for the current model by building all sorts of special editions. At the 2018 Goodwood Festival of Speed, Lotus paid tribute to two of its most iconic race cars with the Exige Type 49 and Exige Type 79.

Both cars celebrate the company’s past glory in Formula One. The Exige Type 49 marks 50 years since Graham Hill won both the drivers’ and constructors’ championships in the Type 49, while the Exige Type 49 marks 40 years since Mario Andretti did the same with the Type 79. The former race from 1967 through 1970 and won two championships, while also scoring podiums in each season. The Type 79’s career was a bit shorter, from 1978 through 1979.

Both Exige models were crafted by Lotus Exclusive, the brand’s recently established bespoke division. Let’s find out more about them below.

PostHeaderIcon Add Geneva to The List of Auto Shows That Volvo Is Not Attending

Volvo is continuing to step away from attending auto shows after announcing its intention to skip the 2019 Geneva Motor Show. The move is seen as the latest sign that the Swedish automaker is ready to completely drop the auto show model in favor of hosting its own events anytime it has a new model to unveil. That’s now the plan with the new S60 sedan, which the company is unveiling later this month at the opening of its new production facility in Charleston, South Carolina.

PostHeaderIcon Tata H5X Concept

Tata Motors might not be a big name in Europe and the U.S., but it one of the most important carmakers in Asia. Founded in 1945, Tata is now selling a wide range of cars and commercial vehicles, but it’s better known for owning Jaguar Land Rover, which it purchased from Ford in 2008. The Indian company is now trying to expand in markets outside Asia, and it’s joining the bigger, global auto shows with new concept cars. One such vehicle is the H5X, which was launched at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show as a preview for an upcoming crossover.

Tata says that the H5X “provides a glimpse of the future generation of Tata Motors SUV’s in terms of design, technology, and sheer capabilities” and that it sports the brand’s upcoming design language, called the Impact 2.0. It’s also the first vehicle based the new Optimal Modular Efficient Global Advanced Architecture, which developed in collaboration with Jaguar Land Rover. Local media says that the production version will be aimed at crossovers like the Jeep Compass and the Mahindra XUV500 in India. But needless to say, the H5X will probably hit global markets as Tata’s first truly contemporary crossover sometime in 2019.

PostHeaderIcon Subaru Viziv Tourer Concept

While it hasn’t introduced many brand-new models in recent years, Subaru was pretty busy showcasing new design features and technologies with a range of concepts under the Viziv name. The first one arrived in 2013, and since then Subaru has launched a new Viziv design each year. The latest iteration, known as the Viziv Tourer Concept, broke cover at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show, and it features a five-door body layout.

Naturally, the Tourer shares many design features with previous Viziv concept cars. It also shares upcoming driver-assist technologies that we will find in production models starting 2020. But unlike some Viziv concepts, which featured hybrid powertrains, the Tourer uses a boxer engine only. The concept could preview a hatchback or wagon version of the WRX, but it could also be an early preview of the next-generation Outback.

PostHeaderIcon Giugiaro GFG Sibylla EV Concept

Responsible for some of the greatest automotive designs, Giugiaro lost its place in the spotlight in recent years. But, even though it stopped working with the big automakers outside the Audi Q2 and some Chinese cars, Giugiaro rolled out a few spectacular concepts recently, including the Parcour and the Zerouno. The Italian firm introduced yet another in 2018. It’s called the GFG Sibylla, it’s fully electric, and it was developed in cooperation with Envision, a Chinese company specialized in wind turbines, energy management software, and energy technology services.

Created to celebrate Giorgetto Giugiaro’s 80th birthday, the GFG Sibylla uses Envision’s EnOS energy IoT platform, which allows the car to become intelligently integrated into the wider energy ecosystem. In short, it’s integrating EV charging into the electricity grid, a system that other automakers have been studying for quite a few years now. The Sibylla name was chosen accordingly, as it references a figure from Latin mythology endowed with the ability to provide answers and predict the future. It is also a tribute to Giorgetto’s mother, named Sibylla. Let’s find out more about the concept car in the review below.

PostHeaderIcon Hyundai Le Fil Rouge

Hyundai is ready to look at the future as it reinvents itself and the Le Fil Rouge Concept is a display of how the Korean brand sees its destiny. It’s all-electric, it’s sleek, and it’s luxurious. How a model like this would wear a Hyundai badge and not a Genesis badge is a complete mystery, but the point is that Hyundai has high hopes and extreme desires. You can already see that the exterior is attractive and commanding, but inside you’ll find wood, unique styling, and heaps of technology. Oh, and like all cool-guy concepts these days, it has suicide doors as well. What else does the concept offer as far as vision goes and how much will make it to production? Let’s find out.

PostHeaderIcon Lagonda Vision Concept

Under Aston Martin ownership since 1947, Lagonda stopped making production cars in 1990, with a handful of models unveiled after the Aston Martin Lagonda sedan was discontinued. Rumored to make a comeback in the late 2000s, Lagonda finally returned to the market in 2014, when the limited-edition Taraf sedan was introduced. Four years have passed, since and Lagonda has now unveiled the Vision Concept at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show.

A futuristic vehicle with a sleek, shooting brake-like design, the Vision Concept sports a luxurious, four-seat interior that’s ready to give Rolls-Royce and Bentley products a run for their money. Like many modern concepts, it also has autonomous drive and uses a zero-emission drivetrain. More importantly, Lagonda says that the Vision Concept previews a production model that’s scheduled to hit the assembly line in 2021. The upcoming model will have an SUV body style and will borrow styling features from the Geneva show car. Until Lagonda gives us more info on the production model, let’s have a closer look at this intriguing concept vehicle.

Renault has been big on the whole EV self-driver thing for the past few years now, pulling the sheets on several SYMBIOZ concepts back in 2017. The EZ-GO is the latest follow-up, offering the same drivetrain and autonomous tech as before, but with an extra dash of shared mobility services and connected features to boot. The result is a vision of the future of urban mobility, promising improvements to both energy efficiency and quality of life.

PostHeaderIcon Tata E-Vision Concept

Tata Motors isn’t very well known outside of its own market, but if it manages to turn out production models from its most recent concepts, it could find itself in the limelight. The 45X Coupe and H5X Concepts weren’t bad, but it’s almost like we’re watching the brand grow a little bit at a time, and you’ll think the same thing once you take a good look at the Tata E-Vision – an electric concept that has the looks to put some serious hurt on some of the big boys, if Tata can ever actually bring it to the market.

PostHeaderIcon The Eadon Green Zeclat Is One Seriously Strange Geneva Debut

This year’s Geneva International Motor Show was chock-full of debuts, both amazing, and terrible, but it also offered plenty of weirdness as well. Case in point – the Eadon Green Zeclat, a British-born, French-inspired sports car with all-American underpinnings. So what exactly is going on here?

Continue reading to learn more about the Eadon Green Zeclat.

Eadon Green Zeclat


“What makes the Zeclat truly outstanding is its styling, which takes inspiration from the famous French coach builders of the ‘30s.”

Eadon Green is a high-end boutique custom carmaker based out of the U.K. Although it has a relatively short history attached to its resume, the company jumped onto the world stage just last year with the debut of the Black Cuillin at the Geneva International Motor Show.

Based on the Rolls-Royce Wraith, the Black Cuillin stunned audiences with its retro good looks and modern underpinnings, finding a nice balance between new and old. Unfortunately, Eadon Green
declared it as a one-off that would never see full-time production, disappointing well-heeled buyers looking to add the stylish two-door to their collection.

Luckily, there’s a new model on the table. It’s called the Zeclat, and this time around, it’s a whole lot faster. Not only that, but you might even be able to buy one, if you’ve got the bank to back it.

However, before we get into the performance side of things, lets delve into what makes this thing truly special – the styling. Like the Black Cuillin, the Zeclat receives one very unusual old-school aesthetic, with a wide, low stance, long, curving fender lines, and an extended, pointed tail.

For those well versed in automotive history, the look should conjure one word – elegance. That’s because the Zeclat was inspired by the great French coach builders of the ‘30s, with Eadon Green acknowledging names like Figoni & Falaschi, Bugatti, Chapron, and PourTout as major influences in the final design.


The Eadon Green Zeclat Is One Seriously Strange Geneva Debut - image 773892
“For those well versed in automotive history, the look should conjure one word – elegance.”

You could call it Art Deco if you like, something similar to the likes of the Morgan Aero 8.

Even the paint job is a bit out there. The example you see pictured here is draped in a hue dubbed “petrol,” with a shimmering glint that shades between blue and purple depending on the angle and the lighting.

Eadon Green is offering six different wheel designs to buyers, each of which is wrapped in Michelin pilot Super Sport run-flat summer tires. Winter tires are also offered, while custom wheel designs are available upon request.

Moving into the cabin, the Zeclat is replete in high-end features. Both heating and cooling features are offered for the seats, with carbon fiber, piano-black lacquer, and polished aluminum making the materials.

The hand-stitched leather upholstery is of particular importance to the brand, as explained on its website: “Eadon Green are sticklers when it comes to leather,” the automaker states. “Our interiors are tailored using hides from Bridge of Weir Leather, a fine Scottish company established in 1905, who tan only the finest hides, sourced from the best British heritage breeds.”

Upholstery colors include a variety of standard hues, but buyers can get theirs in a custom color if desired. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are included in the infotainment spec.

While the styling and interior options might suggest the easy cruising nature of an old-time classic, the Zeclat is actually very, very fast.


The Eadon Green Zeclat Is One Seriously Strange Geneva Debut - image 774986
“While the styling and interior options might suggest the easy cruising nature of an old-timey classic, the Zeclat is actually very, {very} fast.”

The body is made from lightweight carbon fiber, and comes punctuated by a variety of vents and cooling elements for the engine, brakes, and transmission. It’ll even make some usable downforce at speed, and the company reports it intends on putting the Zeclat into the wind tunnel for some proper aero tweaks in the future.

Under the long, flat hood line lies a 6.2-liter V-8 pumping out a whomping 460 horsepower and 465 pound-feet of torque, all of which arrives free of any kind of power adder. Yep, ditch the turbos and superchargers and hybrid systems on this one – it’s all atmosphere.

Properly motivated, the Zeclat will rage up to 60 mph in a mere 3.6 seconds. If you’re not in the mood for rage, you could also simply cruise, and the active fuel management system will deactivate four of the cylinders for extra mpg.

Routing the output to the rear is an eight-speed automatic gearbox. There’s also a seven-speed manual transmission with active rev matching and automatic throttle blips as a no-cost option.

The bones of the machine consist of an aluminum frame and carbon-nano-composite panels, which, in conjunction with the unique packaging of the transaxle, give the Zeclat a near 50/50 front-to-back weight distribution.

“Helping it corner is Magnetic Selective Suspension Control as standard, with short/long arm aluminum double wishbones in the corners.”

Helping it corner is Magnetic Selective Suspension Control as standard, with short/long arm aluminum double wishbones in the corners. A dry-sump lubrication system keeps the engine purring even when slinging through the corners.

Throwing the anchor are standard steel brakes from Brembo, with 14.6-inch rotors in front and 14.4-inch rotors in the rear. The calipers are finished in black as standard, but you can also get them in a red, blue, or yellow finish for a little extra outlay. Eadon Green is also offering custom colors, if desired.

The optional performance package tosses in new suspension pieces and upgraded brakes, with 15.5-inch carbon ceramic discs in front and 15.3-inch carbon discs in the rear.

Multiple drive modes help to dial in the experience, ranging between Sport mode for spirited driving, and Tour mode for a more relaxed demeanor. There are five driving modes total, each of which performs adjustments to the steering, throttle response, and electronic traction control.

Final touches include live data recording if you want to head to the track, as well as a heads-up display and digital readout that measures the cornering forces.


The Eadon Green Zeclat Is One Seriously Strange Geneva Debut - image 773891
“If all that sounds a little familiar, it’s because the Zeclat is basically a Chevrolet C7 Corvette Grand Sport under the skin.”

If all that sounds a little familiar, well, it should. You see, the Eadon Green Zeclat bases its interior spec, infotainment gear, and oily bits on the Chevrolet C7 Corvette Grand Sport. The 6.2-liter under the hood is the highly celebrated Chevrolet LT1, while that cabin layout is obviously all-‘Vette, plus some nicer materials.

According to an interview with Road & Track, Eadon Green founder Felix Eaton says the company could make as many as 25 units annually for the Zeclat. If all 25 are indeed snatched up, pricing would be set at around 550,000 pounds ($776,127 at current exchange rates, 03/22/2018), although it could jump to 1,000,000 pounds ($1,411,140 at current exchange rates) if production is limited to just five units total.

If all 25 are indeed snatched up, pricing would be set at around 550,000 pounds ($776,127 at current exchange rates, 03/22/2018), although it could jump to 1,000,000 pounds ($1,411,140 at current exchange rates) if production is limited to just five units total.
