Fiat S.p.A., Ferrari, Citroen and Honda all showcase environmentally friendly technologies at the Geneva auto show.
Fiat will unveil Europe's only two-cylinder engine, which will appear in the 500 minicar while Ferrari debuts a hybrid powertrain in a prototype of its 599 GTB Fiorano coupe.
Ford will unveil a station wagon variant of the new Focus alongside production versions of the five-seat C-Max and seven-seat Grand C-Max compact minivans.
Citroen's DS High Rider hybrid concept car is powered by PSA/Peugeot-Citroen's diesel full-hybrid system, which will be offered in Peugeot and Citroen cars starting in 2011. Honda's European version of the CR-Z coupe aims to expand the appeal of hybrid cars to drivers who want a sporty but fuel-efficient vehicle.
Below is the second part of Automotive News Europe's A-Z guide to Geneva launches covering automakers from Citroen to Honda.
Citroen will unveil the DS High Rider hybrid concept car, which heralds the forthcoming DS4 due in early 2011. The three-door coupe also previews Citroen's replacement for the C4 compact hatchback, which is due next year.
The DS4 will be the second member of the DS sub-brand of near-premium cars after the DS3, which went on sale late last year.
Citroen says the High Rider combines compact dimensions with generous internal space, dynamic performance and sophisticated styling.
