2013 McLaren P1
Easily the most anticipated debut expected at Geneva, McLaren has been sneaky about releasing details of its new supercar, leaking details slowly. The P1 is a Formula One racer’s dream, designed with a hybrid drive train to be race ready – it is also destined to be the most powerful street-legal race car on the road. Imagine how fast your daily commute would be!
Volkswagen Golf-e EV
One of the most hyped electric vehicles is the EV version of the VW Golf. VW’s new Golf EV will have a driving range of up to 175km and the battery pack will charge fully in just 20 minutes. The electric powertrain is thought to feature a new version of the motor systems used in the previous Blue e-Motion model.
2014 Alfa Romeo 4C
Alfa Romeo will be unveiling its highly anticipated 4C compact sports car in Geneva. The mid-engine, two seater vehicle is filled with high-tech features including a carbon fibre interior, a four-cylinder 1750 turbo petrol engine and a cool new ‘Race’ mode, designed to enhance your driving experience on a race track.
One debut grabbing headlines from Geneva is the VW XL1, touted as the most fuel-efficient car in the world. The futuristic-looking two seater car uses a diesel plug-in hybrid propulsion system to use less than one litre of fuel per 100km (when on the combined cycle). Just think how few trips you’d need to make to a petrol station with fuel consumption like that!
