New GFG Style Sibylla EV saloon concept sizes up Tesla at Geneva

Company founded by designer Giorgetto Giugiaro teams up with Envision to debut Sibylla concept EV at Geneva

GFG Style, a new company founded by legendary designer Giorgetto Giugiaro, has debuted an all-electric luxury saloon concept at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show

Called the Sibylla, the Tesla-bating concept features a dramatic look with a one-piece glasshouse, coupe-like roofline and boomerang rear lights. It's designed as a modern interpretation of the cars Giugiaro designed in the 1960s. 

All the latest from the 2018 Geneva Motor Show

The glasshouse eliminates the need for an A-pillar, which is said to make it easier to get in and out of. The glass itself is photosensitive and adopts a tint in direct sunlight, while the dome can slide forwards and backwards on structural glides. 

The concept uses a four-motor electric powertrain and platform engineered by Chinese green energy company Envision. No power output is given, but the car is likely to use a 75kWh battery, which is said to store enough energy to power the average European home for a week. It can become part of a renewable energy ecosystem, called EnOS, acting as an intelligent energy source. 

Inside, the Sibylla features a completely flat floor with four individual seats that can recline and slide. An aircraft-inspired steering wheel features, and the dash is said to be laid out in a half-moon shape with several displays for infotainment functions.
