Volvo used its new C30 model for the ReCharge concept, replacing the drivetrain with wheel motors. The ReCharge is designed as a plug-in hybrid, with a 60-mile range on its batteries. It can be recharged from the grid or from an onboard four-cylinder engine. Sounds like the Chevy Volt already has a competitor.

Ford was quick on the crossover trend in the U.S. with its Edge. For Europe, Ford decided a slightly different model was in order, and came up with the Kugo. Hmmm, Kugo, Cujo. Doesn't Ford realize that Europeans read Stephen King, too?

Mitsubishi considers the cX a crossover SUV, according to its press release. The rest of the world calls this type of car a hatchback. It runs off a 1.8-liter clean diesel engine mated to Mitsubishi's new twin-clutch SST transmission. Cool.

BMW is using the 2007 Frankfurt auto show to brag about its low carbon emissions. That's fine, but we just want to see the BMW 135i coupe, launching at the show and due in the U.S. next year.

We know, it's an engine, not a car. But this is Mercedes-Benz's DiesOtto, an engine that combusts through compression, like a diesel, but burns gasoline. Mercedes-Benz has a lot of dramatic claims about its efficiency, claiming that a 1.8-liter DiesOtto does fine under the hood of an S-Class. At the show, this engine will come wrapped in a new research car dubbed the F700.
