Porsche caused shock and awe in London traffic on Tuesday morning as a racing driver Mark Webber drove the 919 Hybrid Le Mans-winning car with the new Panamera 4-E Hybrid in tow. The saloon will make its debut at the 2016 Paris motor show.

Paris - Global automakers are showing off new electric vehicles at the 2016 Paris motor show as they look ahead to a world of tighter environmental standards on emissions.

Volkswagen on Thursday (Sept 29) displayed the I.D, a battery-powered compact it says will sell for about what a fully equipped Golf diesel does when a production version eventually goes on the market in 2020.

Mercedes was unveiling a new battery-powered SUV, in part a response to the buzz over electric upstart Tesla.

Porsche show off new Panamera hybrid

The first thing one saw on entering the pavilion housing Volkswagen's wares was a big, sleek, sky blue Porsche Panamera, a high-performance sedan — that's diesel powered. Porsche is one of Volkswagen's brands and was also showing off a hybrid version of the Panamera. 

Automakers are coming up with new electrics to help them meet tougher requirements for fleet average emissions and mileage. Low- or zero-emissions vehicles are especially in focus after Volkswagen was caught rigging cars to cheat on diesel emissions tests. 

The guys at TopCar sent us awesome images of the some of the latest model reveals at the show.
