Can't say I can relate either of these mash-ups to the iPace?
Peteski...

Would you?

Definitely not for me! I don't really like contrived stuff like this (never been a modern Mini fan for example) and have you seen the interior pictures?!! Might work for some 20 year old chic girly types though, lol
Come on man!! That on some spicy rims in a Mugen bodykit will be the dog's jangly bits! The interior, I understand, evokes the sense of being in a lounge room setting surrounded by your sound system etc and sitting on "couchy" material. I had you in this all day long. Might consider it if things go south a bit and the Taycan is off the menu... :lol: :lol: :lol:

I'm struggling a bit with juxtaposition of the 70s interior vibe and hi-res displays. With the horizontal "desk" effect dashboard it looks like a refit of NASA's Apollo mission control centre.

That is very interesting for sure. Certainly a worthy rival for Tesla's upcoming Model Y and Polestar appear to have followed Tesla's lead in interior tech. As a second car I think I would still prefer the Model 3P, but this warrants a closer look. Dare I say it looks like a pretty strong rival to a Macan too, at least for anyone able to take advantage of an EV.

If any of those concepts actually resemble their reality once released, I will dance an Irish jig.

So apparently the planned new BEV Macan & old ICE Macan will be sold alongside each other. VAG strategy to cover all bases. No doubt, like the Audi E-Tron, the Macan BEV will start in the £70k+ bracket

"To provide the second generation line-up with a harmonious look, both the petrol-engine and electric models will adopt similar exterior and interior styling."

I'm not sure what to make of that statement? Does that mean the electric Macan will look like a 10 year old ICE design or is the petrol one going to get a second facelift in 2021?

I would wager the latter. It's almost Panamera'ish. Do you remember the facelift off the original (the one where the rear end had a stroke?). That was refreshed rather sharpishly as well.

I only remember that the original Panamera was a total dog and now it looks pretty smart! I didn't follow its evolution too closely. My wife made the same observation recently too.
