The 17th biennial Shanghai Auto Show opened on Wednesday and runs until April 28. In the city’s clover-leafed National Exhibition and Convention Centre, car manufacturers are feeling pretty lucky with 113 world premieres on display. Visitors are not quite so fortunate, thanks to the event’s confusing layout and poor signage.
Volkswagen Audi Group has the strongest showing among the international original equipment manufacturers (OEMs), and also reflects the show’s overriding themes: electric vehicles and sport utility vehicles (SUV). Skoda and Volkswagen are showcasing new electric SUV concepts. Vision E is the first fully electric and autonomously driving concept car from the Czech brand, while VW adds an SUV to its ID family of electric concepts. The Audi E-Tron Sportback, on the other hand, is more of a crossover. Closer to production-ready sales are promised for 2019 with a claimed range of about 500km.
