Geneva Motor Show

Good morning Warren and Friends

I’m just back from the Geneva Motor Show in Geneva, Switzerland. All types of wonderful art that can drive were shown. There was a whole hall dedicated to the 24 hours of Lemans. Volkswagen Group brought out a new Lamborghini, Audi A3 e-Tron plug-in hybrid, Volkswagen Golf GTE, Bentley, Skoda, Seat. Some of these brands you may not have heard of but they are owned by Volkswagen. We all now Porsche and they showed the 919.

Jeep and Fiat were out in force, showing the new Renegade. People were divided – they either loved it or hated it. Maserati brought out the Alfieri that was, of course, beautiful.

The events in Russia and Ukraine did seep into the show. I did a piece on it to show how many cars are sold in Russia and by whom. I was also on the John Batchelor radio show talking about it. You can find that on the same link.

Let’s chat about cars:
