    Geneva 2019: Kia introduced the Imagine by Kia concept

      Answers concerns about range and performance while also being dynamic to drive.

    Kia fully unveiled their all-electric concept car at the Geneva International Auto Show today.  

    Kia's design team exploited the flexibility of an electric chassis architecture to maximize cabin space to create a spacious interior.  They drew together elements of a muscular SUV, a sleek sedan, and a spacious crossover into a single vehicle that purposely does not fit into any one classification. 

    The concept pokes a bit of fun at the industry's current obsession with screens by creating gauge cluster made of 21 individual high-resolution screen curved over the dashboard.

    The Imagine by Kia is not destined for production, however, design elements from the vehicle show the direction Kia may take on its future cars and SUVs.

    Very cool, I love the poke at the large multi screen with all those little ones. LOL

    Overall I like that they state bigger interior in a smaller package. Hopefully they really deliver on this.

    Well, it's a concept, so there won't be any delivery on this one at all.

    True, but still cool to see someone building true concepts to get consumer feedback. :D

    I would highly encourage Kia to take this styling direction even if it isn't on EVs.

    Yet another crossover coupe vehicle.  

    Problem is all these companies already have 3-4 SUVs, so now they have to make crossover coupe vehicles because there is nothing left as they kill all regular coupes and sedans.  Plus once BMW and Mercedes did it, the other 30 brands needed to copy that idea.

    Nah, the '72 Fury.  The Kia front kinda reminds me of the Fury bumper shape.

      Herick Fisker is back again after his original company succumbed to bankruptcy in 2014.  Now as Fisker, Inc., the latest vehicle he is showing is an electric crossover concept.  While we have a picture, the technical details are light.
      The EV will be priced near $40,000 and have a 300 mile range.  Powered by an 80 kWh enhanced lithium-ion battery, there will be rear-motor rear wheel drive and optional dual motor all wheel drive available. 
      Fisker is planning on the not-yet-named SUV in late 2021, just about a year after the Tesla Model Y is due to hit the market.  Fisker is planning on a Telsa-Like online only sales model with "nationwide concierge service".

      Tesla unveiled their newest addition to their lineup, the Tesla Model Y, last night at an event in Los Angeles. 
      The Model Y is a crossover based on the Model 3 platform but is large enough to carry 7 adults.

Like on the Model 3, accessing the Model Y works from a connection to the driver's smartphone.  The Tesla Mobile App connects to features like remote door lock, Summon, remote pre-conditioning, location tracking, and more.  Tesla has built the Model Y to be the safest mid-size SUV with rigid body structure and large crumple zone.  
      The Model Y will come in 4 powertrain variants.  The Standard Range version will start at $39,000 plus $1,200 delivery charge. It will also be offered in Long Range, Dual-Motor All-Wheel Drive, and Performance.  The highest performance Model Y will have a 0-60 of 3.5 second and a top speed of 150 mph.  Standard Range battery will offer 230 miles of range while the Long Range version will offer 300 miles on a full charge.
