Volkswagen, Toyota and Suzuki all have hybrid debuts at the Geneva auto show.
Volkswagen's new Touareg SUV will be VW's first-ever showroom model to offer a gasoline-electric hybrid drivetrain. Toyota's UK-built Auris hybrid is part of Toyota's plan to shift its focus in the diesel-heavy European market to hybrid vehicles as part of a new effort to use its resources more selectively.
Suzuki's plug-in hybrid version of its Swift will be show for the first time in Europe alongside the Kizashi, which will be the Japanese automaker's first model in the mid-sized segment.
Below is the fourth part of Automotive News Europe's A-Z guide to Geneva launches covering automakers from Seat to Volvo.
Seat will debut a small spider concept based on parent Volkswagen group's new small vehicle architecture, press reports says. In 2001, Seat created a small spider concept, called the Tango, but the car never entered production.
