Automakers highlight their ideas for a future where cars will drive themselves most of the time and run on electric power at the Paris auto show.
Automobili Pininfarina, a brand launched this year by India's Mahindra & Mahindra, has recruited a former BMW and Porsche executive as its technology chief as it prepares to launch its first hypercar. The company also has teamed up with Rimac Automobili, a Croatian startup that specializes in superfast electric supercars.
The Paris auto show marks the start of the fight back by German premium automakers against Tesla's dominance of the market for full-electric luxury vehicles. The EQC crossover will be the first of a new generation of battery-powered cars from Mercedes-Benz, while Audi's e-tron makes its auto show debut after a media unveiling last week in San Francisco.
Opel is marking its ownership switch from General Motors to PSA Group with a new design language it calls "pure and bold."
Opel's GT X Experimental concept previews the automaker's pure, high-tech styling that will appear in its models in the mid-2020s.
Kia is shaking up its Ceed compact car family in response to the rising popularity of SUVs and crossovers. Besides giving the latest-generation model advanced safety technology, a cleaner diesel engine and a better ride, Kia will add new variants.
