Frankfurt focuses on green power

Petrol guzzling high performance cars took a back seat at this year's Frankfurt Motor Show as more manufacturers were keen to show their green credentials.

Petrol guzzling high performance cars took a back seat at this year's Frankfurt Motor Show as more manufacturers were keen to show their green credentials, according to the Telegraph.

The newspaper reports that although the show still made room for new concepts from Lexus, Lamborghini and Aston Martin - more green options were given to car finance customers with models such as the new Volvo C30.

Volvo's new version of the C30, which is still in its concept stages, boasts a host of green features such as parallel hybrid power and advanced lithium polymer batteries.

The Swedish manufacturer was not alone in offering eco-friendly options for the environmentally aware new car seekers, with Fiat and Hyundai also promoting hybrid vehicles.

Last week Auto Express reported that Fiat was set to unveil the Panda Aria in Frankfurt which is thought to emit around 65g per km of CO2 and offer between 64 and 105 bhp on a choice of engine sizes.

The magazine also said that the Italian manufacturer had plans to apply the same eco-technology being used on the Aria range to its new 500 model.
