Geneva Motor Show 2012

'The class-conscious brand custodians at Mini would be concerned about the Mini's brand va...

Mini will finally add a commercial variant of its iconic design at the Geneva Motor Show, creating an interesting new niche for the growing premium small car segment. Though the Clubman-based Clubvan is only a concept, we expect the unique blend of upmarket panache, go-kart handling and delivery van load-carrying capacity to fulfill pent-up demand for a premium stylish commercial vehicle and propel the concept into production. Remarkably this vehicle has a highly successful predecessor. The Morris Mini Van was replaced in the Morris commercial fleet in 1982 after half a million vehicles - when production ceased in 2000, the van accounted for nearly 10% of all Mini sales.  Read More

Peugeot 208 GTi Concept

One of the cars which originally popularized the now-burgeoning hot hatchback category, the Peugeot 205 GTi, looks set to be reprized with an all-new 208 GTi concept to be shown in Geneva next month and production seemingly inevitable. The six-speed manual 208 GTi runs a 203 bhp turbocharged 1.6-liter engine, guaranteeing performance well beyond the original 205 GTi which launched in 1984 with an at-the-time amazing 104 bhp.  Read More

Ford's decision to launch its new B-MAX at Mobile World Congress indicates just how important mobile communications have become in automotive buyer decisions. The B-MAX's very clever Easy Access Door System was thought to be the key selling feature, but Ford claims that the as yet undisclosed new technologies to debut on the vehicle will make it "among the most technologically advanced small cars on the market."  Read More

The Ssangyong XIV-2 Concept will be shown in Geneva

Ssangyong is obviously exploring the shape of the Crossover Utility Vehicle (CUV) of the future if its last two concept cars are anything to go by. Last year's XIV-1 concept offered a stylish exterior and an entirely new take on the CUV interior, and now the XIV-2, which we'll see at the Geneva Motor Show, will give us a convertible crossover. The two concepts are designed to preview SsangYong’s upcoming compact crossover for Europe.  Read More

The Bertone Stratos HF Zero concept debuted at the 1970 Turin Motor Show

Italian auto design house Bertone will introduce a new concept car at the Geneva Motor Show. Named Nuccio after Nuccio Bertone, the long-time chief of the company who passed away in 1997, the car will not only honor Nuccio, but it will also pay homage to Bertone's design heritage in recognition of its 100th anniversary. Judging by the teaser sketches that have surfaced, the Nuccio looks to be a reinterpretation of classic wedge-shaped, mid-engined supercars from the 1970s best exemplified by the Lancia Stratos HF Zero ... and it could be one of the most interesting concept car debuts of the year.  Read More

Rinspeed is renowned for producing exotic concept vehicles for the Geneva Motor Show each year - the aquatic sQuba and shape-shifting iChange being two prime examples - and the 2012 show looks like it will be no exception. We've seen external battery packs designed to increase the battery life of a smartphone, and now Rinspeed's "Dock+Go" concept brings the same idea to electric vehicles in the form of a vehicular backpack that docks to the rear of an electric vehicle to extend not only their range, but also their cargo-carrying capabilities.  Read More
