There's an interesting realization that occurs when you drive an electric car like the 2010 Mitsubishi i-MiEV. You pass by gas station after gas station and it finally sets in – your car has rendered the fuel pump obsolete.
Perhaps the most important new car launch for Ford, however, is the 2012 Focus, which makes its world premiere at the 2010 Paris Motor Show. This is the first product designed from the ground up with the Blue Oval's "One Ford" product strategy, and the Focus you see here will be sold in both North America and Europe with only very minor tweaks being made for the individual markets. It certainly looks good, and with a raft of new engineering, safety and infotainment technologies on hand, the 2012 Focus is ready to set the C-segment on fire.
Jaguar's C-X75 concept features two 96-horsepower micro gas turbines that pump juice into a plug-in li-ion battery pack, allowing 780 horsepower and 1,187 pound-feet to push you to 62 in 3.4 seconds.
