CITROEN TO SHOW 2-LITER PER 100 KM CONCEPT IN PARIS.
The Paris Show will provide the stage for what the French industry have achieved within the “New Industry Plan” promoted in 2013 by the French government. The project has been financed with € 250m. and aims to develop technologies leading to the production of car with fuel consumption of just 2 litres/100km by 2020.
RENAULT AFTER VOLKSWAGEN IN THE B SEGMENT.
Renault has announced that, in addition to their top of their top star, the new Espace MPV, and more starlets, they will unveil a high-tech vision of their one-litter per 100 km (282 mpg) car. The formula was “invented” by Volkswagen but Renault want to be the first to achieve that in with a B-segment compact family car that delivers 100 km on one litre of fuel and yet take four people and some luggage.
Reportedly Volkswagen is also working to this aim and I would not be surprised if the German maker also shows a similar concept in Paris.
One year after teasing the public visiting the Frankfurt Motor Show with the Espace Concept, Renault will be premiering the all-new generation of the MPV it was first to offer in Europe some 30 years ago: the famous Espace.
Through the years the big, family van has matures into a large, sophisticated crossover, which aims at appealing new buyers with a strong design and modular, highly flexible, interior.
The restyling of a concept car.
A new trend is launched for the Paris Motor Show by Peugeot. The restyling of a concept car.
Restyling is typically reserved to production cars and when a concept car chassis was “recycled” for a new project the outcome would take a different name. Here we witness the introduction of the “sequel”.
Last Spring. Peugeot’s look into the potential successor to the 508 flagship took the shape of a luxury car that would attract the Chinese buyers.
Its name says it all, the new DIVINE DS (from the House of Citroen) has designed and created in Paris, France, to really impress those who will attend the next Mondial de l’Automobile, next door to their headquarters.
In preparation for that the ultimate concept has just been unveiled few weeks after the official birth of the brand.
Land Rover has revealed the new Discovery Sport, the world’s most versatile and capable premium compact SUV, says the camaker.
The first member of the new Discovery family, Discovery Sport, features 5+2 seating in a footprint no larger than existing 5-seat premium SUVs.
Discovery Sport’s progressive new design approach defines the new Discovery family with optimised volume, proportions and stance. Its design leadership combines with engineering integrity to result in a dynamic profile, the ultimate use of interior space and 5+2 seating configurability.
