Unfortunately I never get to go to the Frankfurt motor show but it is great to be reading all the buzz around some of the electric and hybrid cars on show. Peugeot, Mercedes, Audi, Volkswagen, Ford and Renault were all there to showcase electric-powered concepts while Tesla showed off a Brabus tuned-up Roadster and their upcoming Model S.
There were plenty of hybrid and plug-in hybrids on display also. Toyota look to be expanding their hybrid range to the Auris and GM’s hybrid plug-in, the Ampera, is particularly exciting and is expected to go on sale in the UK in 2012. But the hybrid that has really got me drooling is BMW’s Vision EfficientDynamic concept. BMW claim that the diesel hybrid will hit 0-62 mph in 4.8 seconds while running at 75.1 mpg. Check out this video that I found on Youtube and I think you’ll see what I mean! And let us know if you have any thoughts on the motor show or if you were even lucky enough to go!
