The most anticipated news of the Shanghai Auto Show 2019April 13, 2019
Despite the fact that most of the Chinese new products will never leave the local market, many interesting new products will be presented at this event.
Already on April 16, the Shanghai Automobile Salon will open its doors. This will be the 18th time in a row. It is held every two years on odd numbers. And every year the event is becoming more and more popular and entertaining in terms of the number of automotive brands and new products being represented. In 2019, a huge number of electric cars, unmanned concepts and modern production cars from the budget segment to premium class models are expected.
We decided to rank the most interesting new products that we expect to see next week.
And the first place is the most interesting concept from the guys from Ingolstadt. As part of the Shanghai Motor Show, Audi will present its newest unmanned AI concept: me. This concept will demonstrate how the future compact car can be. The model will receive an autonomous control system of the fourth level, as well as a salon that allows you to relax or have fun even the driver.
Another concept won the second place – Infiniti Qs Inspiration EV. As the name implies, this is a regular electric car, but this time the Japanese brand decided not to follow the trends and will introduce a new sedan. It is worth noting that the design of the concept looks quite interesting, and most importantly alive to be released in the series. The front part is devoid of the grille, which is located on the place of the cap, DRL, emblem and the inscription Infiniti.
No less interesting will be another concept from the German concern – Volkswagen ID Roomzz Concept. So far the company has presented only teasers of the novelty, for which many details cannot be understood. The most intriguing is the image of the interior, where you can see the hexagonal steering wheel. We assume that it will be able to hide in the front panel. This means that the future electric crossover will receive an autonomous control system of the fourth level.
The fourth place goes not to the concept, but to the full-fledged serial model. Mercedes-Benz is preparing to present a miniature version of the G-Class. In a few days, the GLB-Class compact SUV will debut. Despite its compact size, the model will be able to offer three rows of seats. The interior design will be borrowed from the new A-Class with the company’s multimedia information system MBUX.
Closes our today’s rating is another model from Audi. Soon the serial version of the compact Q2-based crossover will be presented. In China, they will show us an elongated version with a Q2L e-Tron all-electric powerplant. Under the hood, there will be a 135-horsepower electric motor, capable of developing up to 290 horsepower. It is assumed that the power reserve will be about 265 km.
