Once again, the Geneva International Motor Show was the venue of international unveilings of saloons, SUVs, supercars and concept cars.

Top among the much-awaited international premieres was the Jaguar I-Pace, the manufacturer’s first 100% electric car, delivering a range of almost 500km. Lamborghini for its part created a buzz with its luxury SUV Urus, while Lexus took the wraps off the UX.

BMW showcased its new BMW X4, as well as a restyled i8 roadster version. Several new generations of iconic models also caught our eye: the new Audi A6, Jeep Wrangler, Kia Ceed, Mercedes Class A, Toyota Auris and Volvo V60. Honda unveiled the European version of its CR-V hybrid SUV and Bentley a rechargeable hybrid version of its Bentayga.

The Renault stand was the scene of much effervescence with the unveiling of a new concept-car depicting the manufacturer’s vision of rideshare urban mobility, the EZ-GO, but also the Alpine A110 Pure and Legende, two new trim versions of the original sports car, respectively more driver-focused and more sophisticated.

Over the years, Geneva has earned a name for itself as a leading venue for supercar fans. This year was no different and a plethora of race cars filled the alleys: the Ferrari 488 Pista and its 720hp V8 biturbo, a lightweight carbon body McLaren Senna, a drop-top version of the Lamborghini Huracan Performante and a restyled Porsche 911 GT3 RS.

Finally, a number of concept cars gave the public an insight into how the world’s top car manufacturers see the future, starting with the Skoda Vision X, a petrol, electric and natural gas hybrid, urban, compact SUV; a sports concept car by Toyota that may spell the return of the Supra; BMW’s Grand CoupĂ© M8; and finally, a top-of-the-range electric, self-driving saloon with voice commands in the futurist “zero emission” range by Vizzion.
