A state of the art report from the forefront of the car industry

With the motor industry in turmoil and environmental concerns more pressing than ever, this book highlights the latest cars that promise to challenge our dependency on fossil fuels. Tesla's S offers an alternative to the traditional luxury sports sedan, Chevrolet's Volt could leap-frog Toyota and Honda's trailblazing hybrids, Smart goes zero-emission, while electric cars from Renault and Nissan are bringing up the rear.

     The book's scope is global, examining Indian company Tata's affordable Nano, supercars developed in Morocco, home-grown people's cars in Iran, Saab's reinvention at the hands of Swedish supercar maker Koenigsegg, Hummer's new Chinese future, and the demise of legendary brands like Pontiac. Can Jaguar roar back under new ownership? Will Rolls-Royce overtake Bentley with its new entry-level model? How is Europe reacting to newly-introduced Infiniti and Cadillac models? What is Fiat planning at Chrysler?

     Written to satisfy autophiles without confusing learner drivers, this unparalleled guide to today's most stylish, innovative and intriguing automobiles also looks at the companies pushing the frontiers of design, value, and technology. Featuring a chapter on every manufacturer of note and their most desirable models, with hundreds of original photographs and illustrations, as well as interviews with designers and entrepreneurs at the forefront of change, and special features exploring street culture, it demystifies the rapidly evolving world of motoring for discerning drivers.

     Whether you're looking for an off-road workhorse or a limousine, an electric urban runabout or an exotic supercar, if it's on the road and worth a spin it's in this book.
