BMW “misjudged the situation” on electric cars

BMW says that it misjudged the situation when it came to electric cars, as the German brand’s massive planned expansion into the segment with its BMW i sub brand didn’t go to schedule. Speaking to Australian media at the Frankfurt motor show today, BMW’s boss of electric mobility, Dirk Arnold, admitted the original idea for the BMW i brand of cars was to have more than just the current i3 and i8 by now.

Skoda Vision E: Revised EV concept revealed

The Skoda Vision E concept has made its European debut at this week's Frankfurt motor show, sporting a more resolved look than the original concept that was revealed in Shanghai earlier this year. Much like the Volkswagen I.D. Crozz II concept, the Vision E has received a light nip and tuck for Frankfurt, making it appear closer to production-ready.
