It’s not the question, who is creating the best design, or which is the best design team? It is more the question, which design taste is leading and influencing the world market. Now, the Shanghai show is providing an increasing variety of design styles and material interpretation on an increasing number of vehicle body types, which will be successful in China and later world wide.

CES  Atmosphere…  2021

A bit sad, …compared with last years CES, this time just half of the car manufacturers showed up on the digital show floor of the CES 2021.

What a challenge for all the established car brands to handle the demands of the digital, – without burning fuel, – without showing real cars, during the learning process that they are not a software driven company… welcome to the electric future with its digital twist.

The Beijing Show, postponed from April to the end of September, was a typical EV focused event with again lots of new Chinese brands.

The “U-Turn” from GENEVA marks the first time the Car Men team will miss the spring motor show. COVID-19 is the big news this year and as a result most of the manufacturers created a virtual press conference and it is these images which we have used for our report.

The customers are analysed, they are supported by robots, their needs are foreseen by Artificial Intelligence and the product profiles are getting more and more complex. In contrast to this complex future scenario the overall design development is becoming increasingly clean, crisp and minimalistic but with additional emotional features and some clever HMI.

Frankfurt  Atmosphere… 2019

New Mobility ?

The general opinion was this has to be the last IAA in this form. Still a lot of ground to cover but lots of empty spaces and cost cutting.

The question is what makes sense for 2021 ?

Show Blues

After the Paris and Detroit shows and before Frankfurt this years Geneva was again proof
of the Auto Show Blues trend with some significant no shows ! But two directions were remarkable in Geneva
with the contrast of clean compact concepts from Fiat and Honda in contrast
to the exotic and irrational super sports cars from Bugatti and the specialist manufacturers.
