3 Sep 2019 | Glenn Brooks

There is no question about it, the ID.3 will be the main attraction of the 2019 edition of the Internationale Automobil-Ausstellung (IAA). Volkswagen even delayed the next Golf to be certain of no other vehicle stealing the thunder of this EV. The Land Rover Defender will also be making headlines, as will the Porsche Taycan even though the latter is to be revealed on 4 September, almost a week ahead of the IAA's first press day.

Management briefing - 2018 Paris motor show preview

24 Sep 2018 | Glenn Brooks

It's going to be an unusual bienniel Paris Mondial de l'Automobile. European markets appear to be strong yet there is anxiety in the air due to worries about a correction in 2019.

Management briefing - 2018 Geneva motor show review

12 Mar 2018 | Glenn Brooks

Geneva 2018 had the usual collection of hypercars, although many of them are powered by the energy stored in batteries rather than in petrol tanks. Robotic taxis were there too with Volkswagen cheekily painting its already seen SEDRIC in the colours typical of a US schoolbus. Why then for a show rich in electric vehicle world premieres were so many of them overshadowed by new petrol and diesel models?
