Well - of all those models pictured above the only ones that aren't goppingly ugly are the Aston and Volvo Car designs might be more efficient and safer these days but the result is utterly souless identikit boxes on wheels.

I never understood this argument for general consumer cars. Of course they sound the same. So do current current cars. A 1.6L Petrol Focus sounds exactly the same as a 1.4L Petrol Toyota Corolla. Nobody is buying a diesel Kia for the sound.

For general consumer cars engine noise is not a factor.

Audi seem to be confirming that there will be no combustion engine version on some future sport models, meaning that if a particular RS model is EV or hybrid, there will be no alternative.

'Audi Sport will only offer one powertrain on individual cars in future, rather than giving buyers the option of pure combustion-engined or electrified powertrains when choosing an RS model.'

I'm sure many will feel they should be given a choice, but does focusing on a single drive-train mean that they are not having to compromise on design?

The German firm Electric Brands is looking to demonstrate the versatility of an EV platform, with the eBussy having ten different bodystyles.

Surely there is a design to please all with such a range on offer?

'Two chassis configurations are offered: City and Off-road. Other options include three driving positions - left, central and right - that can be changed by sliding the steering wheel across the dashboard.

Since it's intended for urban use, the eBussy’s four electric motors provide a modest 20bhp. However, it's likely to have an impressive towing capacity, because those same motors produce 737lb ft of torque.'

GMC Hummer EV previewed ahead of autumn reveal

'The Hummer EV is referred to as "the world's first super truck". With around 1000bhp and 11,500lb ft of torque, it's claimed to be capable of 0-60mph in 3.0sec and takes its power from GM's new Ultium battery pack'

I'm sure there will be a definite target group for this - but this one seems to be in contrast to the typical EV marketing?

There are potentially a range of VW EVs coming soon, with the application to trademark a number of names.

e-Samba, e-Beetle, e-Golf Classic, e-Kübel and e-Karmann have all been applied for, suggesting that they are planning a range of e-classics?

Zero Labs have released a restomod version of the Series III LandRover.




In terms of practicality - I think the characteristics of EV power delivery (and the lack of exhaust) makes it a viable option for 4x4 use.

'Available in open-backed ‘Beach’ and more traditional ‘Classic’ specs, each costing around $185,000, Zero Labs equips the Series III with independent front and rear suspension, either an 85 or 100kWh battery good for up to 235 miles of range and an e-motor with up to 600bhp.'
