The Paris Motor Show - Is the Electric Car Take The Cake?

This year's edition of Paris Motor Show is probably more "green" so far. But since we're talking about a car show-fledged gas guzzling supercars are still the main attractions. Dozens of press conferences, inaugurations of both concepts and new models are already being manufactured, triumphant speeches and talks on the crisis in the industry - all mix under the roof of the Universal Exhibition in Paris.

And if it is environmentally friendly is what you're looking for, then walk no farther than Renault exhibit. The French manufacturer seems to have the cake when it comes to green cars that actually work in the real world: the ZOE, Fluence ZE and Kangoo ZE electric cars are filled with zero emissions. And if you talk about electric cars can not go forward without mentioning ION small Peugeot and Mitsubishi MIEV.

But not all manufacturers was completely zero emission electric cars. BMW, Mercedes, Citroen and Volkswagen are waging a battle against pollution, trying to make their current engines cleaner and more fuel efficient.

However, one has to admit: the supercar with hundreds of horsepower under the hood still the dream of every driver. Everyone was looking at electric cars, but only take pictures of the brilliant style road rockets like the Audi R8 GT, Mercedes CL63 AMG and the Maserati GranTurismo GT. I mean, honestly, who dreams of a cruise on winding mountain roads in the electric Smart ForTwo?
