Slide 1 - Best of Geneva Motor show 2018

The Geneva Motor show is one of the biggest annual motor expos in the world. It is hosted at the Palexpo convention center and has been the launchpad of some of the most revered cars we have seen over the years. First held, all the way back in 1905, this is also one of the oldest motor shows in the world. This year we saw some new launches not only from bigger brands such as Volvo and Porsche but from lesser-known companies such as Touring and Corbellati. India automaker Tata also showcased its new electric sedan concept at the prestigious event. As expected “electric” was the underlying catchword for the event, but there was no scarcity of fossil fuel powered cars as well. Here is a look at the coolest cars launched at the event, along with some newly announced concepts.
