Italdesign Giugiaro has had a very nice string of Geneva show cars – last year's GEA autonomous concept was preceded by 2014's Clipper electric MPV, which came a year after the 2013 Parcour off-road sports coupe (which gave way to the Audi Nanuk Quattro later that year). After that intriguing, diverse trio, Italdesign could have taken Geneva 2016 off without a word of criticism. But instead, the Italian design house once again debuted one of the more interesting concepts of the show. The all-new GTZero is Italdesign's vision of a modular, all-electric grand tourer packed with innovation.

Whether we're talking supercars or concept cars, "cars" is the operative word at this year's Geneva Motor Show, with larger vehicles like trucks and vans playing more of a supporting role at the show. But that doesn't mean they aren't making their presence known. There's a new six-wheeled version of the recently retired Land Rover Defender, a hybridized Volkswagen T6, a cool, little beach buggy called "Bee-Bee," and more.
The big stars of this year's Geneva Motor Show are clearly the supercars, but concept cars are proving a memorable supporting cast. In addition to new concepts and design studies from the big manufacturers, Geneva is also the place to find debuts from Italian design houses and design schools. This year's show has plenty of concepts to see, from 4x4 adventure minivans, to classically influenced roadsters, to cutting edge autonomous cars, on to hydrogen-powered track cars. Read More
What sports car lover hasn't imagined attending an auto show where all the cars are super-stylish, high-performance sports coupes uninterrupted by the rough, awkward lines of eco-friendly hatchbacks and everyday sedans? With plenty of regular cars on show, the 2016 Geneva Motor Show isn't quite that show, but it's the closest thing we can recall witnessing. The show's long debut list includes established marques like "Bugatti," "Koenigsegg," "Pagani" and "Lamborghini" and newer players like "Arash," "Rimac" and "Techrules." It all adds up to one of the most stunning displays of carbon fiber styling and earth-rumbling horsepower you'll ever see. Read More
Now that Rimac has a production car ready to go, there seems to be no holding it back. It's put together the most electrifying booth in Geneva, quite literally speaking. Next to the 1,088-hp Concept One supercar is the even faster, more powerful Concept S, the One's "evil twin," along with a matching, unleashed version of the Greyp G12S electric bike. All in all, close to 2,500 horses with current-spiked manes are dashing around Rimac's booth.
DS Automobiles is ready to tell the world it's arrived. PSA Peugeot Citroën's new premium brand has blended avant-garde styling and cutting-edge technology in an all-electric, two-seat GT concept car. The car is called the E-Tense and it highlights the best in French design.Read More
A year ago, UK-based Boxer Cycles launched the Rocket, a unique, child-carrying electric trike styled like a classic aircraft. This year, it adds an even more stylish, luxurious version, the Rocket Saturn. Like a special edition car, the new trike enjoys both styling and performance upgradesRead More
Over the past year, Volkswagen has been trying hard to tap into the spirit of its classic Type 2 T1 and T2 vans, offering a retro-inspired launch package for the T6 van and channeling its heritage into the Budd-e concept. Neither was all that convincing. A new camper van from German van converter Martin Hemp looks like a far more fitting tribute to the original Type 2s. The T6-based Flow Camper captures the "freedom and love" spirit of 1960s-era VW campers while outfitting road trippers with a modular set of modern camping equipment.Read More
Smartwatches have already gone Swiss with models like the Breitling B55 Connected and Tag Heuer Connected, and now they're going Swiss Army. Developed by Acer, the new Cybertool brings some smarts to the Victorinox Inox watch, turning it into a Swiss Army smartwatch with classic analog dial. Add a couple other available accessories, and the Inox becomes a veritable Swiss Army knife for the wrist.Read More
