PICS: THE CHIC AND SUPER SEXY RIDES AT GENEVA!

The 2019 Geneva Motor Show has only just kicked off but it's already being praised for having the best concept cars on show to date.

Predictably there’s been a strong emphasis on Electric and Smart vehicles, with Volkswagen, Volvo, Fiat and Audi all displaying new prototypes, but it’s the quirkiness of the cars on offer that stands out.

"Automakers are really thinking outside the box when it comes to the design and usage of vehicles. They’re preparing for the millennial car market, who do not see car ownership as aspirational or even as a necessity," Head of Operations at Gumtree Auto Nunben Dixon said.

The Fiat Concept Centoventi is one of the few more affordable concept EVs to debut in recent years.

“It will potentially be sold as a basic shell with accessories sold separately (or 3D printed) - even paint would not come standard as the car can be overlaid with printed wraps year to year” Dixon said.

He also highlighted the Aston Martin's Lagonda which claims to be the world's first zero emission luxury brand and comes with front seats that swivel to face the rear passengers.

The Citroën Ami One is the Instagram star of the show as a car that was not designed for regular drivers.

Citroën’s Jean-Arther Madelaine-Advenier says it’s "less like a car and more like a connected object … not meant to appeal to a car freak … the aesthetic is different for a wider and younger audience”.

Dixon believes the Geneva 2019 concepts offer a great glimpse into the future of motoring which has to be “affordable, electric and in tune with the big shifts in how in cars will be used”.
