Luxury and mainstream automakers are accelerating plans to electrify their cars, both with battery-powered and partially electric hybrid cars and SUVs.
Several long-awaited Tesla-fighting models from European automakers will be the center of attention at this year's Geneva auto show.
Peugeot has given its new 508 a "fastback" design to help the car compete better in Europe's midsize segment where volume automakers are losing sales to premium rivals.
Kia will partially electrify its Ceed lineup with a 48-volt mild hybrid but has no plans to add a full-electric version.
ZF said CEO Stefan Sommer is leaving the company. Sommer's departure likely signals the end of an expansion strategy that drove the German supplier's $12.
Audi has given the A7 Sportback a fresh, muscular design, cleaner interior and advanced technology including remote garage parking and 48-volt mild hybrid technology.
Kia sees the new Stonic as its best opportunity to date to conquer those European customers who remain stubbornly loyal to traditional German, French or Italian volume brands.
