Re: The 2011 Frankfurt Forecaster
Back on topic, I've been trying to figure what French manufacturers were going to present to the public in Frankfurt. In the comments that followed Geneva one reader bemoaned the absence of big releases from the French trio but I think traditionally they keep their big announcements for Paris (obviously) and Frankfurt.
So what can we expect, other than the usual mad (or not so mad) concepts? Based on info published and a few guesses:
Renault: apart from the next installment in their EV range (Zoe and whatever the van is called), a new Clio and a new Espace are well overdue, a facelifted Megane and maybe a convertible.
Peugeot: new 208 and108 (together with new C1 and Aygo) are expected, plus some electric offering (obligatory). What else? Maybe a new large MPV (808) and smaller vehicles (1008, 2008) to broaden the range.
Citroen: new C1 as mentioned above, and maybe some new DS models (DS5 most likely?). Can't think of anything else right now.
