Skoda presents Vision E: In the run-up to the Shanghai Motor Show, VW’s Czech subsidiary has unveiled its Vision E concept which is to go serial in about 3 years. Just like the I.D. Crozz, the coupe-crossover relies on two electric motors with a total output of 225kW (302bhp) and shall reach up to 500 km, too. Just recently, Skoda announced to launch 5 all-electric models until 2025.

Roewe unveils electric SUV: SAIC brand Roewe intends to display its all-electric concept Vision-E in Shanghai, that is not to be mixed up with Skoda’s vision, at least not by name. SAIC’s concept to aims for 500 km range but may roll of the lines already next year in China. Production will be handled by the SAIC-VW joint venture, the same that is also to make the Skoda’s Vision E, what suggests that Roewe’s and Skoda’s concept may even share a platform – although the design of both models differs.

Tesla lowers base price for Model S: The Silicon Valley based EV maker has removed the 60 kWh version of its Model S from its line-up as announced. This makes the Model S 75 the new entry option that is now available for a significantly lower gross price, namely 69,350 euros.

Austria finalises mobility plan: Some 16,000 new EVs are to hit the road by 2018, and Austria is digging into its pockets to get the ball rolling. From January, it will subsidise all-electric cars with 4,000 euros (3,000 euros for businesses), and plug-in hybrids with 1,500 euros. All vehicles must be recharged using 100 percent renewable energy, the base price must be less than 50,000 euros and the electric range has to be at least 40 km. Moreover, license plates with green writing will give EVs special privileges, like free parking. Two-wheelers, all-electric utility vehicles, wallboxes, intelligent charging cables and public EV chargers also qualify for some form of subsidies.

Bigger sells better: Back in October, Mahindra introduced a four-door version of its e2o electric car (we reported). Though it was not intended to actually replace the two-door variant, it will do exactly that, as sales of the latter never really picked up.

Chinese carmaker Roewe unveiled its i6 sedan at the Guangzhou Motor Show. The car will also be available with a plug-in hybrid drivetrain, combining a petrol engine and 82 bhp electric motor. It is also said to be the basis for the next-generation of MG Motors’ MG 6, while the drivetrain will also be used in the upcoming small SUV MG ZS, which will arrive in the UK in May.
