Media previews take place on 5 & 6 March

It might be five months away but already some OEMs have named world premieres for next year's Geneva motor show.

BMW 3 Series Touring

G21 is said to be lengthier and roomier than the F31 Touring which it replaces.

Citroën concept

No official details as yet, other than this announcement made at the 2018 motor show.

Pininfarina PF-Zero

Mahindra and its subsidiary say they will release an electric hypercar in 2020 via a new company, Automobili Pininfarina. The firms told the media in April that the Munich-based AP will "manufacture high technology, extreme performance, luxury electric vehicles for the most discerning global customers."

Potential buyers were given a private viewing of the prototype during Monterey Week in August. The PF-Zero and its model name will be revealed to the public at the 2019 Geneva motor show, Pininfarina says.

Škoda B-SUV

The model name isn't yet known, only that a production version of the Vision X concept unveiled at the 2018 show will be revealed. Size wise, this model can be considered the overdue successor for the Roomster Scout which was discontinued in 2016. The Volkswagen Group is delaying its Czech subsidiary's entry to the segment until mid-2019, so as to give the Volkswagen T-Cross a good chance of establishing itself.

Given that the Karoq and China's Kamiq are the same size as the Nissan Qashqai, the B-SUV will probably be sized between 3.9 and 4.2m. It may well be sub-4m so as to be competitive in the Indian market. Mladá Boleslav will be the main plant, but build will also take place in China and India. The concept was 4,255mm long, 1,807mm wide and 1,537mm high.

Skoda insiders have spoken of a new architecture which will be the basis of this model. The name is said to be MQB A0 IN with the suffix being an abbreviation for India.

Brands which are already known to have decided against having a stand at the show include Ford and Volvo.
