Wow! Better looking Exterior than the Merc I think...then e-Tron GT looks really nice too! 

Know what? I think I seem to like the Audi eTrons, though they are based on the Porsche Taycan and the VW ID looks like they out perform them both. Big problems coming up for the competition and yes those cars look good.

With the current gen petrol performance cars coming to their end of life cycle, maybe these could be your last petrol performance cars.

New Macan Spy Shots...

That dashboard totally reminds me of a spaceship from Buck Rogers...(and even BattleStar Galactica)

I do like the proportions and the stance of the new one...although now it looks more like an overgrown crossover hatch.

Not much different to the outgoing model is it? A big difference in styling to the 2 Gran Coupe (which is a FWD).

No. Shape wise its the same-ish. Just thecrear lights and the quarter panels from the back just look wierd

Do agree on the looks

Rear quarter panel remind me of Nissan

Looks as if they are moving away from 911 styling clues to more SUV/ Hatchback looks.

Press release says that the 2 Series Coupe will be a stand out model from the 2 Gran Coupe and the rest. Apparently the rear is wide due to the wider track for the rear drive platform.

Wider track is fine (after all even the GR Yaris is the same)...but did they really have to use that light design and bumper shape ? :D The Yaris' stormtrooper helmet look seems to be more acceptable than this :)

BMW i3 sales in the US will end this month, and it looks like by 2022 it will be phased out. Its a car that never achieved the high sales numbers expected but did prove that BMW had the knowhow to make an electric car in 2013. The following article says that its a quirky design and great drive but I am not a fan of them both.

You got to drive it? Oh cool! How does it compare to a regular small engined car or how does it compare to the other electric cars you have driven?

Sorry buddy I just saw this. 

Well to drive it was nice and quiet and you could just bring the car to a halt by taking your foot off the accelerator. Kind of more powerful and agile than the Leaf I would say. Also much better response than a small car. They still manage to retain more mileage from the batteries since you can replace them easily using brand new batteries.

When you talk of a CEO of a car company (internationally) you think of old guys / gals who are close to their retirement age. Unless of course its Mr. Musk. The CEO of Bugatti (yes the supercar) is a 33 year old guy with a mixed background and a BMW being the cause of him getting into EV's.

Mate Rimac who produced the Rimac Nevera the fastest accelerating production car in the world is the new CEO of Bugatti and owns 55% of it (balance owned by Porsche). Basically VW has given him the shares without a cent in the transaction and he is supposed to bring in EV tech to Bugatti in the coming years.
