2011 Frankfurt Motor Show, In accordance with time and trends, this year’s Frankfurt Motor Show was dominated by electric and hybrids. Of course, there was also evidence of the global slowdown and although the show is not found lacking in its ability to surprise, there was a clear decrease in participation levels.
The possibility that some belt-tightening by consumers in major European markets was also reflected in the number of small cars and fuel-efficient urban concepts on display. However, do not give up, even in the face of recession, the luxury car brands in Germany and the rest of Europe also brought its share of excitement to the series debuts with a few unique.
If the Frankfurt Motor Show was all glitz and glamor with launches of new models, the scores of the concepts, all electric and hybrid vehicles for the European market, which can take some solace in the fact that there is a little excitement went this way too.
