Gallery: City Cars Reign Supreme at the 2011 Frankfurt Motor Show

 
Finally a Smart car from Smart that does something remarkable. Hexagonal transparent solar cells on the Smart Forvision's roof let in light and also help power the tiny car's lighting and climate control systems. The Forvision also makes use of superlight carbon fiber body parts and insulated body panels to maximize efficiency.

With even suppliers focusing on plug-in electric vehicle technology and other green propulsion systems, this has truly been the year of the city car so far at Frankfurt. But the show isn’t over yet. We’ll be sure to bring you more future tech photos as more visions of our sustainable transportation future are unveiled in Germany this week.
