GM to unveil compact hybrid concept in Frankfurt

Prius beware Just Auto

We're just a couple of weeks away from the first major auto show of the new season, and the buzz around concept cars and new model launches is already in full swing. According to Just Auto, GM is planning to use the Frankfurt show to unveil a concept hybrid version of its compact Opel Corsa. The Corsa Hybrid concept will make use of the same belt-alternator starter system that we've seen recently in the Saturn Vue Green Line and the Saturn Aura Green Line. Unlike the production Saturn models--but similar to the much-hyped Chevy Volt--the Corsa Hybrid will feature a lithium ion battery pack. With its diesel engine and hybrid drivetrain, the Corsa Hybrid is expected to get more than 60 mpg.
