It’s March and for all car fans it’s the time for the annual Car Motor Show in Geneva, Switzerland. As a car- and travel enthusiast I could not miss this opportunity to check out the city of Geneva as well as few world premieres from the most popular car producers. For me it was my second Car Motor Show and the first one in Geneva. I have had high expectations and I must admit, I was not disappointed.
You can’t stop the evolution in technology and the research in the car industry is the perfect proof for it. The 86th Geneva International Car Motor Show brings you many new innovations in the car segment but also in the way how businesses attract people’s attention and involve them into the customer experience.
For me the biggest applause this year belongs to Nissan with their wirelessly charged, electric, self-driving IDS « hatchback ». You remember the movie « I Robot » and the self-driving cars? Well the future is here. How useful it is in the real life, I can’t tell yet, but I admire the effort they put in this car as well into the presentation of the vehicle.
Another interesting car producer who stand out from the crowd was Mazda, not only they came up with a very attractive designs to their new models, but they also disposed of a dynamic young staff who was very kind to answer all the questions. They mainly focus on the improvements of their current motors, rather than use more eco-friendly power sources. If this is the right direction?
An interesting vision showed this year Skoda with their first SUV, which is going in production (hopefully) soon.
Very professional impression also made the Chevrolet stand with their new flagship model Corvette Stingray 2017 as well as their new Camero.
A hot car was also the supersport from Pinifarina that runs completely on water. It would be nice to see this technology also in some more useful vehicles.
I thought that the German’s will surprise with some badass concepts, but there was not much to see. VW presented his concept Budde which I found a little off the path.
Koenigsegg showed his Agera RS which let the hearts of car fans beat faster.
Bugatti presented the fastest car in the world as well as the 1500 PS engine. I found it a little sad that they did not turned the car, but only showed the back of it, quite a weird marketing strategy.
Right next, you will find Chiron’s rival, the Pagani Huayra BC with 700 PS and a price tag above € 2 million.
The prettiest concept showed in my opinion Citroen with its E- Tense. That design should be rewarded.
Lamborghini also presented their new beast, the Lamborghini Centario.
The kind staff from McLaren let me also check out the new McLaren 570GT and the 675LT, I have to admit that sitting in a € 2. Million car is not much different as sitting in your own vehicle. I wish I could drive it though.
There was a big buzz around Tesla and their new elegant SUV.
These were the hot topics of the 86th Geneva International Motor Show. It was the presentation of the latest technology in the car industry which gave a nice impression on how the cars in future will look like. Here some more impressions from the car show.
