Techrules Ren: Turbine-recharged electric supercar revealed

The Techrules Ren that was unveiled and on display at the 2017 Geneva motor show is not only the Chinese research and development company's first production vehicle, but also the first to feature a turbine range-extender system. The Ren's body was designed by Fabrizio and Giorgetto Giugiaro, and will be available in one-, two-, and three-seat versions, each with a different polycarbonate canopy.

Kia has no plans to take on Hyundai N and Genesis sub-brands, chief designer says

Speaking to Australian media at the 2017 Geneva motor show, Kia chief designer Gregory Guillaume said Hyundai’s N Performance and Genesis sub-brands might make sense for Hyundai, but neither is a path Kia has plans to follow. “When we work on and develop our cars, we don’t really think about Hyundai, to be honest,” Guillaume said.

Mercedes-AMG GT Concept points to advanced powertrains, new models in the very near future

It might be just a show car at this stage, but expect to see a production version of the four-door Mercedes-AMG GT as early as next year - though it probably won’t be the full-strength V8 hybrid we see here in concept form. The four- or five-seat GT car will most likely launch in 2018 with the latest V8 petrol engine and electric motor, but it probably won’t be a full-blown performance hybrid, according to Chairman of the Board of Management of Mercedes-AMG GmbH, Tobias Moers.

2018 Lexus LS500h revealed

The Lexus LS500h, the second variant in the fifth-generation LS range, has been unveiled at the 2017 Geneva motor show. Unsurprisingly, the LS500h shares its hybrid drivetrain with the closely related LC500h coupe. Both models feature a new Multi-Stage Hybrid drivetrain with 264kW of total system power that uses a traditional automatic transmission instead of the company's usual e-CVT setup.

Next-generation Mitsubishi Pajero and Nissan Patrol to share platform

The replacement for the ageing Mitsubishi Pajero will most likely be a joint project with the Nissan Patrol, as the alliance between the two Japanese brands seeks to find a technical solution to the environmental requirements on the development of large off-road capable vehicles. The current and fourth-generation Pajero, which has been around since 2006, is still being sold globally, due to the ongoing challenge of its replacement meeting much stricter emission requirements than ever before.
