Volkswagen ID Space Vizzion Concept

2020 Volkswagen ID Space Vizzion Concept

Los Angeles Auto ShowJoining the fleet of new electric vehicles being shown at the 2019 Los Angeles Auto Show is a concept from Volkswagen — with a twist … actually, more than one.

Called the ID Space Vizzion (not a typo), it’s the seventh concept to be built off Volkswagen’s MEB platform, which hosts the company’s upcoming electric vehicles. But unlike the usual range-efficient electric cars or more practical electric crossovers, the ID Space Vizzion is an electric station wagon.

Hyundai Vision T Plug-in Hybrid Concept

Los Angeles Auto ShowFor many people, the most practical way to take best advantage of vehicle electrification is with a plug-in hybrid, which combines some electric-only drive range with the backup of a gas engine for longer trips. While pure-electric vehicles get the bulk of press coverage these days, Hyundai recognizes that plug-ins still make a lot of sense, as illustrated by the Vision T Concept introduced at the 2019 Los Angeles Auto Show.

By Don Sikora II

When it comes to collecting just about anything, rare is usually good. When it comes to cars, few are rarer than factory-built prototypes. Count among them the one-of-a-kind factory-built 1954 Hudson Jet-Liner convertible prototype owned by well-known Hudson collector Edward Souers of Woodburn, Indiana.

It might seem strange to think of the Chrysler 200 as a Rosetta Stone of sorts, but there are few products that better demonstrate the turmoil that surrounded Chrysler towards the end of the last decade.

Volkswagen Tarok Concept

2019 New York Auto Show The 2019 New York International Auto Show is just around the corner, and Volkswagen will be displaying a concept version of a vehicle it says it doesn’t intend to bring to the United States market… at least not yet. The VW Tarok pickup concept was first shown at the San Paolo International Motor Show in Brazil late last year, and a production version is slated to go on sale in South America in the near future.
