3 Major Takeaways From the Geneva Auto Show

Korean auto giant Hyundai chose Geneva to unveil its new long line of alternative energy-powered vehicles.

The International Geneva Motor Show, held every March in Switzerland, is the biggest and most important auto show in Europe. Traditionally, all of the European automakers have looked to make a big splash in Geneva every year. But increasingly, as the market for new cars has become a global one, major automakers based elsewhere have also chosen to unveil important models before the global media in Geneva.

This year's show offered up a slew of important new-vehicle debuts. We asked three of the Fool's auto-minded contributors to tell us about the new models that caught their eyes from the floor of the Geneva Palexpo convention center.

Rich Smith Opens a New Window. : It's Hyundai's "three-fer" of green automobiles that really caught my eye in Geneva.

With offerings that include a hybrid gas-electric vehicle, a plug-in hybrid, and even a totally electric EV, Hyundai is offering something for everyone in its Ioniq line -- so long as what you're looking for is green cars to save the planet, and your wallet.

On the other hand, this is probably not what Toyota was hoping to see. Currently, Toyota's Prius is the best-selling hybrid Opens a New Window. on the planet, and arguably Toyota's best reply to Hyundai, which has for years boasted that its car fleet gets the best mileage of any automaker.

As more and more automakers venture into hybrid waters, however, Hyundai's claim to fame could be at risk. Its decision to go all in on alt-en looks to me like an effort to ensure that Hyundai stays at the head of the pack, mpg-wise. And the fact that the new Ioniq hybrid boasts better horsepower than the 121-hp Prius tells me Hyundai has put Toyota front and center in its crosshairs.
