Audi Q4 e-tron: compact electric SUV coming soon 

Audi has unveiled the next chapter in its rollout of electric vehicles. The Audi Q4 e-tron is about as big as a Toyota Corolla but rides as high as an SUV and has the performance of a hot hatch. The 2019 Geneva motor show concept has a combined 225kW of power via two electric motors, one each for the front and rear axles. That’s enough to produce a claimed 0 to 100km/h time of 6.3 seconds, which is in the neighbourhood of the VW Golf GTI and Renault Megane RS.

Kia unveils its first electric sedan: ‘Imagine by Kia’

Imagine the performance of a Kia Stinger in a car the size of a Toyota Corolla sedan that doesn’t use a drop of fuel. That in essence sums up the awkwardly named ‘Imagine by Kia,' a sleek electric sedan concept unveiled at this year’s Geneva motor show. There’s no detail about driving range because that’s academic on a concept car, but Kia did reveal this bold new look is a pointer to the design theme for all its future electric cars.

Jaguar I-Pace named European Car of the Year

The Jaguar I-Pace has taken out European Car of the Year 2019, narrowly edging the Alpine A110 sports car for the prestigious title. Picked from a field of seven finalists, the I-Pace impressed judges with its bold design and dynamic drive, despite its eco-friendly electric powertrain. Both the I-Pace and A110 scored 250 points following the jury vote, which was then resolved by counting the number of top marks awarded to each – 18 for the Jaguar, and 16 for the Alpine.

VW revives the Beach Buggy – and it’s electric

Volkswagen has revived the iconic beach buggy, unveiling the modern 'ID. Buggy' sand-blaster on the eve of the 2019 Geneva motor show. While it’s only a concept car for now, VW executives say it is "70 per cent" production ready and only a few years away. The modern Beach Buggy shows how serious Volkswagen is about getting doubters across the line with its vision for an electric future.

Lamborghini Aventador SVJ Roadster headed to Geneva - report

It appears Lamborghini is planning a pretty significant reveal for the Geneva motor show later this week, specifically a drop-top version of its Aventador SVJ flagship (coupe pictured). American publication Carscoops claims it has unnamed sources telling it the Raging Bull will bring the Aventador SVJ Roadster to the Swiss event, complete with all the mechanical and aerodynamic upgrades already seen in the coupe, though with a removable carbon-fibre roof.
