Italdesign gets modular and electric with GTZero concept

A case in point is Italdesign Giugiaro’s Clipper MPV concept car, which was unveiled last week at the Geneva Motor Show. The four-wheel drive, six-seater with fully independent all-electric drive sports a design that's based on a study of future cities, and is billed by the maker as a “veritable automotive research design lab.” Read More
