Make: Italdesign Giugiaro

Car: GEA Concept

Fuel: Electric

Wolfgang Egger, head of styling area of Italdesign Giugiaro, describes the car as “our vision of luxury mobility for the future". GEA’s vision is based on the self driving autonomous technology which, the company says, shifts the focus from the driver to the passengers in the back. The Volkeswagen-owned design house’s concept is made of aluminium, carbon fibre and magnesium elements and is powered by four electric motors—two each in the front and the rear—that deliver 764 horsepower and a top speed of more than 150 miles per hour. The main attraction of the cabin is the rear, where an integrated smartphone controls major functions and allows one of three modes to be selected—Business, Wellness or Dream. The ultimate luxury car of the future.

Car: Berlingo Mountain Vibe Concept

Fuel: Diesel/Petrol

The near-production Citroën Berlingo Mountain Vibe Concept has a rustic, outdoor-ish look with an assortment of body accessories, including roof rails and plastic trim over the wheel arches. The car stands out for its use of bold colours—pink add-ons on wheel arches and mountain green paint accented by pink graphics over the car’s body. Citroën hasn’t yet revealed the interiors and technical details of the car.

Car: Concept-AX SUV

Fuel: Hybrid

Mitsubishi unveiled the prototype of a compact SUV with a daring design and hybrid propulsion, which the car maker is signaling to be the successor of the ASX. The new concept car uses the next-generation plug-in hybrid electric vehicle (PHEV) technology that Mitsubishi describes as a lightweight, compact and high-efficiency front-engine/front-drive system ideal for an urban crossover.

Car: QUANTiNO Concept

Fuel: Electric

NanoFlowcell AG—the little-known start-up from Liechtenstein—managed to turn many a head when it unveiled the electric sedan concept in Geneva last year. Building upon that groundwork, the car maker launched two cars this year offering two different takes on how the firm’s power technology can be used. QUANTiNO, the youngest member of the QUANT family, is a low-voltage vehicle, but it packs a punch. Running on a rated voltage of just 48 V, it attains an output of 4x25 kW/136 hp, and has a range of more than 1,000km with a top speed of more than 200 kmph.

Nissan Sway Concept.

Make: Nissan

Car: Sway Concept

The glass floating roof is perhaps the most telling feature of the Sway concept that Nissan featured in Geneva. That and the absence of the central pillar, and we can go on and about that, but simply put, it is the best car that Shiro Nakamura has designed after taking over Nissan’s design department. The company says the car is designed to appeal to European taste but chances are that a lot of features from the Sway concept will be used in Nissan’s future cars.

Car: Hexa Concept SUV

Fuel: Diesel

The Hexa concept, in nut-shell, is the Aria with improved features that are mostly design related. The honeycomb grille, the flatter new bonnet, prominent wheel arches and thicker body cladding gives the car a look that is more like a crossover.

What can we say about a Rolls-Royce Phantom that hasn’t already been said before? With special silk-lined interiors inside a pearl white Phantom (which is what the Serenity is all about), the car maker’s Bespoke designing team has taken luxury motoring to the next level.

Lexus LF-SA Concept.

Car: LF-SA City Car

Concept

At just over 11 feet in length, the LF-SA Concept is an incredibly small car but Lexus says it can seat four passengers in a two-plus-two layout. The company says the LF-SA (short for Lexus Future-Small Adventure) Concept is a driver-focused vehicle, reflecting the car maker’s vision that real driving experiences will remain the ultimate luxury.

Car: MILA Plus Concept

Fuel: Hybrid

Sporty. Eco-friendly. And gorgeous. The latest offering by Magna in the MILA (Magna Innovation Lightweight Auto) range of vehicles—the MILA Plus—ticks all the boxes above. Inside the aluminium frame and composite body panels, the MILA Plus packs a hybrid powertrain that has a three-cylinder petrol engine with a pair of electric motors.
