A round up of the Frankfurt Motor Show 2019

A round up of the Frankfurt Motor Show 2019

The Frankfurt Motor show is still in full swing, at the time of writing. With five more days to go, visitors have been treated to some big reveals and a whole host of tech from the exhibitors.

Perhaps one of the most anticipated reveals, and the one that’s garnered most of the press coverage, is that of the new Landrover Defender.

Landrover Defender 2019

This new model is by far the biggest shake-up in the Defender’s 71-year life, with an all-new platform, a wide range of engines, new technology and significantly increased dimensions. Production has also moved from Solihull to Slovakia. Landrover say the Defender’s platform is 95 per cent new compared to existing models, and Land Rover says it’s the “strongest, stiffest structure it’s ever engineered.” Three-door 90 and five-door 110 versions of the new Defender have been confirmed so far, with the 110 available now.

The Honda e has also hit the headlines.

The Honda e

Revealed in Frankfurt was the final production car that will soon be on our roads. The Honda e will come in two power specifications: one with a range-topping 152bhp e-motor and the other with a 134bhp unit. The e has a futuristic interior with two large touchscreens and real ‘stuff of the future’ are the cameras replacing wing mirrors.

Volkswagen is calling its new ID.3 EV its most important car since the Beetle and Golf and it was revealed in Frankfurt.

VW have said: ……. the ID.3 is as compact as a Golf, has the interior space of a Passat, and the [performance] punch of a Golf GTI. It’s reported range is ‘up to’ 550km [342 miles] and is the first model in the ID range….watch this space!

The BMW Concept 4 has hit the headlines with some controversy – it has, what can only be described as a giant front grille!

It will be interesting to see how much of the concept is translated into the final production model
