EVâ€™s and hybrids have featured at the Geneva Motor Show, which opened this week, with carmakers using the event to showcase new designs.
BMW used the show to introduce its new hybrid 7 series, unveiling the new M760Li xDrive.
The company says that while the car is designed to appeal to drivers favouring low emission cars, the vehicle – which has 12 cylinders and 601 horsepower – can reach 100 kilometres per hour in 3.9 seconds.
Hyundai also used Geneva as a launch platform, displaying the full lineup of its Loniq dedicated EV brand, which includes hybrid, pure EV and plug-in hybrid models.
Nissan unveiled its â€śIntelligent Mobilityâ€ť technology which will be featured in its new Qashqai crossover vehicle to be launched in 2017.
The technology combines driverless features known as â€śPiloted Drive 1.0â€ť, more efficient power from the electric drivetrain, and zero emissions.
