Infiniti Qs Inspiration Concept Previews Sporty Electric Sedan

Infiniti Qs Inspiration Concept Previews Sporty Electric Sedan The brand will kick off its electric offensive from the Chinese market. After providing the first glimpse at the Qs Inspiration Concept earlier this month, Infiniti has fully revealed the study which previews an athletic all-electric sedan. At the 2019 Auto Shanghai, the Japanese premium company said the concept offers a new approach on the segment with its raised driving position and all-wheel electric drive. The good news here is that this is not just a design study – Infiniti says the Qs Inspiration previews “a forthcoming production model and hints at the company's electrified future” in general.

So declares BMW Motorrad via Instagram after unveiling its avant-garde electric motorcycle concept , the Vision DC Roadster . While the design of BMW ’s electric roadster is indeed visionary, it’s also distinctly BMW , and retaining signature traits, particularly its Boxer engine

BMW Motorrad Vision DC Roadster . BMW Motorrad is no stranger to electric two-wheelers, of course. In doing so, BMW has replaced its motorcycle’s iconic boxer engine with an electric motor and laterally mounted batteries in the Vision DC Roadster concept .

We are now a step closer to getting an electric BMW motorcycle. Three years ago, the Motorrad divison of the Bavarian manufacturer showed the Vision Next 100 concept. The Tron-looking vehicle looked more like designers flexing their creative muscles than a serious attempt at a proper electric motorcycle. Now, amidst rumors of hybrid powertrains, the company launches its most recent vision of what an electric motorcycle should be like. Introducing the Vision DC Roadster.

Karma SC1 Vision Concept Previews Design Language Of Tomorrow

Karma Automotive, the California-based manufacturer of electric vehicles owned by Wanxiang Group from China, has a trio of electrified machines debuting at the 2019 Auto Shanghai. The “Shanghai Big Three shows what Karma is today, what Karma can be tomorrow, and where Karma is heading in the future,” with one production and two concept vehicles. The first study is the two-door Pininfarina GT coupe, while the second one is the futuristic vehicle you see in the attached gallery below – the SC1 Vision Concept.

BMW has already integrated the hybrid and electric car markets with its I-series, but has yet to do the same on the motorcycle side of things. Granted, the manufacturer introduced the C Evolution electric scooter about five years ago with pretty decent specs, the model hasn’t gained much traction on the e-market. An electric motorcycle would be a push in the right direction. We’re not quite there yet, but BMW is making baby steps.

The Vision DC Roadster still looks pretty much like it was pulled from a science fiction novel than it looks ready for the market, but it looks more like a motorcycle than the Next 100 did. We can see a progression the way the company thinks about electric motorcycles. The design of the central block of the Vision is meant to emulate the look of the famous horizontal heads of the BMW Boxer twin.

At the core, instead of the two cylinders, a battery set vertically within the frame, flanked on each sides by cooling elements meant to reproduce the brand’s signature Boxer profile. Arches imitate the curves of a gas tank in the absence of an actual one. The use of lines to create illusions replacing familiar components help create a recognizable silhouette, but also keep the weight low. In this design, power is sent to the back using a low-maintenance shaft drive. The rider sits on an upward floating saddle that gives the design a dynamic stance and creates an arrow-like silhouette, pointing forward.

More interestingly, with the Vision DC Roadster concept, BMW also introduces the concept of smart gear. The clothing is minimalistic and doesn’t look like the usually bulky gear we’re used to—in fact, BMW describes “hidden protectors” that give the gear very clean lines. There’s also mention of a magnetic rucksack that simply “snaps” onto the vest without having to wiggle your arms out of shoulder straps.

Of course, just like the Vision Next 100 before, the DC Roadster is but a vision of the future, but it looks like BMW is getting a clearer idea of what it wants its e-future to look like.

Mercedes-Benz Teases EQ Concept Ahead Of Frankfurt Debut.
All will be revealed next week. The teaser campaign for the 2019 Frankfurt Motor Show is well underway, and Mercedes-Benz is the next automaker to offer a not-so-subtle nod that something interesting is coming. The manufacturer took to social media this afternoon with a couple of teaser photos showing a sleek shape– both in real-life (albeit under a cover) and as a rough sketch. The not-subtle part comes from Merc’s accompanying post that identifies this car as something from its all-electric EQ team.
