Jaguar needed a BMW 3-series vehicle that has a $30,000 to $40,000 price tag. The company unveiled a twin-turbine, two seat, quad-electric-motor concept car at the Paris auto show.
The C-X75 is the main focus of the project, and it fuses automotive and aerospace tech. Developers worked on the vehicle for over nine months, and most of the manufacturing costs were paid for by Jag. The power train, however, came from a British government project, which was sponsored by Technology Strategy Board. The advanced power train functions like the Chevrolet Volt on a basic level. Inside the vehicle, 330-pound lithium-ion batteries supply electricity that helps the vehicle travel 68 miles.
The Audi Allroad Shooting Brake concept car has a bulbous profile that is very distinctive. The A3 and A4 Allroad concepts seem morphed together at first glace.
The vehicle has features that are based on the first-generation TT near the rear. The most notable updates include wide fender flares, an absent B-pillar, and a new hatch. The trapezoidal grille dominates the front of the car, and the headlight units hold the company’s new LED lighting system.
According to Audi, the car weighs 3527 pounds and features an aluminum body with a carbon fiber polymer. The fiber polymer reduces the vehicle’s overall weight.
Mercedes-Benz has not released a CLS vehicle in a decade, but a new vehicle will be featured at the Beijing Motor Show.
The company has numerous crossovers in its lineup; however, the Concept Coupe SUV is essentially an ML that has more style. The dimensions of the car are coupe-like and sporty, and the overall length measures at 194.3 inches. The new concept car is 5.2 inches longer and 2 inches wider than the ML, so consumers get more shoulder and hip room.
The new concept car has less cargo space and headroom because designer wanted a roofline that swoops past the B-pillar. In the front, the big grille covers the fascia, and it houses a giant logo near a chrome bar. The lower and upper grille contains rectangular cubes that seem to float, and a full-LED lighting system is housed in the headlamp units.
