2017 Geneva Auto Show
But unlike most other shows, our sea of green wasn't just a sea of green sedans and CUV's, it was mostly made up of green sports and supercars. Sure this maybe the best way to enter the market, but it could also be a way to change the face of automobiles as well.
From China to Sweden some of the biggest automotive countries had some form of earth friendly model. Up first was our new Ren supercar from China. This was followed up by a model from a reborn Artega, the new Scallo. Now follow that up with an autonomous Saab concept, and you have the makings of a perfect green field.
One of the most anticipated models at this years Geneva show, was the replacement for the CLS from Mercedes-Benz and AMG. The new AMG GT saloon sedan is sure to help change the face of future Mercedes models.
The other great model on this years show floor came from none other than Italdesign. Sure we all know that they used this years show to showcase their new supercar, but it also was the place to be to see the future of drone technology. We all know that drones are part of future mobility, but when car companies start blending them with cars, you might get the Italdesign Airbus Popup. Of course this drone came with a little help from Airbus as well.
Speaking of drones, you might have wanted to see what Land Rover brought to the show. Showcasing the blending of off road capability with a rooftop drone and you get the Discovery Hero concept. The last great thing that Geneva bought this year was the introduction of a sports car from India. Yes we did say a sports car from India. And who other than Tata would be able to bring a sports car to world of cars. Sure it could help that India is home to Grand Prix racing and a team. Next to that you have the beginning of a beautiful relationship. And with this relationship comes the demand for a sports car. So let's hope that this is not just a concept, but a showcase of things to come.
Well if next year is as good as this year, then we can hope to expect more great green models and concept.
