2011 Frankfurt auto show: Day 2 wrap-up
Day two of the International Motor Show in Frankfurt comes to a close and we take a look back at new super cars, concept cars, and even a few regular cars.
The previous generation i30 made its way to the U.S. market as an Elantra hatchback variant, so there's a chance that the newly announced i30 could also wear the Elantra Touring badge.
Easily one of the best looking concepts at the show, this small grand tourer features a powerful gasoline engine that is supplemented with an electric motor that supplies an instant power boost at the touch of a button.
The VW Nils has a tailpipe emission of nil, as it's powered by a small electric engine. There's just enough power and space to take a single driver on a 40-mile round trip between charges.
Fisker finally adds a second car to its portfolio with the Surf concept. This range-extender electric vehicle takes the looks and tech of the Karma sedan and stretches them to a shooting brake form factor.
The smaller of BMW's i concepts shares its futuristic aesthetic with the larger i8 concept, but this is a city car that offers an all-electric power train.
Mazda debuts the first production car to use its Kodo design language with the announcement of the CX-5 crossover. This is also one of the first vehicles to take advantage of the automaker's SkyActiv suite of efficiency technologies.
We round up over 50 photos from the show floor to give you an idea of what it's like to be at the Frankfurt auto show from the comfort of your desk chair.
