Behold the all electric EMotion sedan by Danish born US based automotive designer Henrik Fisker who also designed the BMW Z8 and several Aston Martins.

The car debuted at the 2018 Consumer Electronics Show claiming an impressive 260km/h top speed, a 650km range and a state of the art battery cooling system that allows a charging time of 9 minutes per 200km.

Available late 2019 for around €104,000,

A concept electric vehicle by Chinese e-car startup Byton that launched this week at the Consumer Electronics Show.

Along with a 400km range and a blisteringly fast 80% charge time of 30 minutes, the company claims that its cabin-spanning,1.25m wraparound touchscreen facia will also make it to production.

The zero emissions Elettrica scooter from Vespa – 100km range, 4-6 hour charge time and, best of all, smartphone integration via Vespa’s Multimedia Platform app to save you fiddling with your iPhone X as you glide down Via Del Corso.

There’ll also be an Elletrica X with a petrol-driven generator that doubles the range.

Talking orders from Spring 2018.

Behold the 63m, 12 cabin Eau Electric Yacht Concept from Amsterdam-based marine designer Frank Tjepkema.

Cruise the Rivieras of the future at 25 knots, surveying all from the droplet shaped wheelhouse of a ribbed aluminium ship which, according to the designer:

captures the reminiscent qualities of the water itself. 

All right then.

Behold the low-slung, gull-winged curvaceousness of the Owl electric supercar – a working concept debuted at this year’s Frankfurt Motor Show by mysterious Japanese technical consulting firm Aspark.

Watch the frankly ridiculous 2 second 0-100km/h acceleration of its chassis (minus the swanky shell above) here.

Behold the Trondheim Trawler – the world’s first electric powered trawler – completely silent and tough enough to withstand four meter swells and 40 knot winds.

Available in three configurations from 9 to 13.5m with nautical ranges between1,500 and 4,000 km depending on powerplant.

You’ll put them all to shame above in Killybegs.

Yours from €265,000.

Behold: the minimalist ‘Zebra’ speedboat – Zen-like styling in a sleek hardwood shell, combined with a clean, silent electric motor created by Paris-based industrial designer Dimitri Bez.

The two-seater all-electric coupé Renault Trezor – just voted Most Beautiful Concept Car of 2016 at the 2017 Festival International De l’Automobile.

Le phwooaar.

Quite frankly.

Behold: the Kreisel Electric G-Class – a rebranded, former V8 diesel Mercedes G-Wagon refitted with an all-electric powerplant. Capable of 0-100km/h in under 6 seconds and with a 300km range, the vehicle loses none of its heavyweight SUV chops.

For now, just a Schwarzenegger-approved prototype, but moving toward inevitable mass production.

Behold the Faraday Future FF-91 – a 1050bhp, an all-wheel drive electric SUV/sedan with a 600km range that will accelerate to 100km/h in 2.4 seconds.

The luxury electroyacht has 3D lidar headlights, an autonomous sensor system including 13 radars and ultrasonic detectors, facial recognition entry and ‘mood sensing’ cameras inside that adjust music, temperature, scent (yes, scent), massage and more to suit your, eh, vibe.

Production begins early next year.
