Joining 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.
Although there is much new for the 2020 versions of Hyundai’s Ioniq “electrified” compact hatchbacks shown at the 2019 Los Angeles Auto Show, the biggest news comes in the full-electric version, which gets a bigger battery and greatly increased range.
Ford officially unveiled its all-new pure-electric sporty crossover—the 2021 Mustang Mach E—Sunday night in Los Angeles, less than a week before the kick-off of the 2019 L.A. Auto Show. It’s remarkable enough that this genre-smashing new vehicle is Ford’s first purpose-built, regular-production, pure-electric vehicle (with no equivalent gasoline-engine version). What’s almost as noteworthy is that Ford has elected to use the name of its beloved pony car, and make this new EV part of the Mustang “family.”

Introduced at the 2019 New York International Auto Show, the Genesis Mint Concept exhibits kind of a strange flavor … and not just due to its appearance.
