Infiniti Qs Inspiration shows itself before Auto Shanghai

Infiniti's shown off a bit of the Qs Inspiration concept before debuting the creased contrivance at Auto Shanghai next week. The concept serves a few purposes, the first to reimagine a future for sports sedans on a planet of crossovers and SUVs. The result blends a fastback with high sides that connect low ground clearance below and an elevated seating position above.

The Japanese luxury maker is all about sedans, the Qs Inspiration signaling how a carmaker watching the bottom line can maintain its interest in the passe bodystyle. The concept previews a production model, and perhaps the design language and lingo we'll see spreading through the range.

Remember the time a year ago when the 2020 Toyota Supra was yet to be revealed but Toyota brought a racing version to the Geneva Motor Show? You can now live that moment again, as Toyota is bringing a new Supra racing version to the Geneva Motor Show.

Honda Shows Urban Ev Prototype Dashboard And Profile

Honda shows Urban EV prototype dashboard and profile

Honda has announced that a prototype of the Urban EV's production version is coming to Geneva. Today, Honda released this teaser photo of the prototype's dashboard, showing a full-width display with screens for the mirror cameras on both ends.

As well as showing the dashboard and its wood trim, the image contains a car icon that shows how the exterior will look. Just as in the earlier spy shots, it's obvious the EV is now a five-door, with short rear doors crafted behind the longer front doors. Some of the original, retro-inspired concept's minimalistic cuteness has been lost in translation to a more production-viable form, and it looks like any "suicide" doors are now gone. The rear door doesn't show any place for a handle, so unless they have been dropped from the icon for looks' sake, the handles will have been fitted in the black triangle in the corner of the glass.
