- One of the biggest developments at the Frankfurt Auto Show is the showcasing of new electric vehicles models from luxury automakers such as Mercedes-Benz, Audi, Volkswagen, and BMW.

- Industry insider think it will as they point to the ability of automakers to lower their average fleet mileage ratings to appease regulators and a long-term trend toward alternative-fuel vehicles that nobody wants to miss out on.
