Münich IAA Mobility 2021: Electric Cars Take Center Stage

Debuts include the BMW iX3 facelift, VW ID.5 GTX, Mercedes-Maybach EQS SUV, Microlino and more.

From September 7 to 12, 2021, the first German auto show since the beginning of the corona pandemic will take place: the IAA Mobility. The trade fair, previously known internationally as the “Frankfurt Auto Show,” is also coming to Munich for the first time. We’ll show you the electric cars that await us at IAA.

Oktoberfest 2021 was canceled due to the pandemic, but everything currently indicates that the auto show can take place. Which brands will take part is only partially certain, but a number of car brands have confirmed their attendance and have already announced which innovations they will bring with them. We expect other cars due to rumors. 

We have newly included the Mercedes-Maybach EQS SUV, and it is now officially certain that the EQE will be shown. We have also added the VW ID.5 GTX and (on a speculative basis) the Polestar 3. We will continue to update this photo series as soon as we learn something about other exhibits or when we are sure that a suspected model will not be shown after all.

Several brands have already announced that they will stay away, including Toyota and the entire Stellantis Group – including the German brand Opel. General Motors is unlikely to participate either. A number of bicycle brands, electric scooter manufacturers and the like are represented.

We omit combustion highlights (including plug-in hybrids) here, after all, InsideEVs is an electric car site. Click through the slides to see the expected electric car highlights at IAA.
