September 6, 2023

1 – BMW Vision Neue Klasse

By 2025, this BMW Vision Neue Klasse will be a reality. Presumably, the production version differs little from the concept car shown at IAA Munich 2023. With the model, BMW is setting new standards in electric driving, sustainability and connectivity.

2 – MG Cyberster

The MG Cyberster may be seen as the modern reincarnation of the iconic MG B. Although the new MG has nothing to do with the MG of old, it is nice that the Chinese owner values the history of “Morris Garages. The MG Cyberster is an all-electric roadster. Unique are the wing doors.

3 – Volkswagen ID GTI Concept

GTI is not dead at all at Volkswagen. It looked like that for a while, but this Volkswagen ID GTI Concept proves that Volkswagen is serious about the GTI label for the foreseeable future. The green light has already been given, so the countdown can begin. The GTI outfitting will be based on the Volkswagen ID.2all coming in 2025. The faster GTI version will presumably come a few years later.
