Peugeot EX1

If the BMW 6 Series Concept was basically an early look at an upcoming production model, the Peugeot EX1 ($TBA) is the polar opposite: a wild creation that lets the car's designers stretch their imaginations with out worrying about pesky topics like actual production cost or real-world feasibility. Still, the EX1 is every bit as intriguing, with its open-cockpit mix of car and motorcycle, it's world-class acceleration, dual electric motors cranking out the equivalent of 340 hp, and its all-time four wheel drive. Just don't expect it in dealerships any time soon.

  • Porsche 918 Spyder

    The result of a mad scientist's experiment involving a 911, a Prius, and the front end of a Ferrari F430, the Porsche 918 Spyder ($TBA) is a new plug-in hybrid concept borrowing bits of all three. A 500hp V8 mid-mounted motor is paired with two electric motors — one for each axle — giving the open two-seat 918 a total of 718hp, good for a 0-62 time of 3.2 seconds, a top-end speed of 198 mph, and yet, amazingly, the possibility for 78 mpg fuel economy. A seven-speed PDK transmission, a carbon-fiber-reinforced plastic body, powerful brakes, a bevy of driving modes, and that prancing horse-inspired front end round out this eco-enthusiast's dream ride.

  • Peugeot 5

    It's just a concept at this point, but the Peugeot 5 ($TBA) is likely to share more than a few features with the company's next 508 sedan — and that's a good thing. It's powered by Peugeot's Hybrid4 technology, which combines a 2.0L HDi FAP diesel engine, mounted at the front of the vehicle and good for 163hp, with a 37 bhp electric motor at the rear for a total of 200hp. Other features include automatic four-wheel drive, 19-inch wheels, LED lighting, and a concept-worthy windshield that seems to disappear into the roof.
