Electric 'hypercars' target eco-conscious billionaires

Electric cars again take the spotlight at this year's Geneva Motor Show.

Not least, electric hypercars.

Mere supercars no longer cut it apparently.

Pininfarina made the biggest splash.

It usually designs vehicles for brands like Ferrari.

The Battista is the first car under its own name.

Yours for around 2 million dollars.

No word if Ferrari is upset about a supplier becoming a rival.

Aston Martin is showing its Lagonda SUV concept.

It previews a production car that is under development.

Jaguar's electric I-Pace already took the Car of the Year crown.

Such vehicles offer high performance, without global warming guilt.

A few familiar issues still to resolve though: (SOUNDBITE) (English) BMW SALES AND BRAND MANAGEMENT BOARD MEMBER, PIETER NOTA, SAYING: "Well, I think that charging facilities and the infrastructure are some of those elements." The Polestar 2 comes from Volvo's new luxury electric unit.

It's intended as a Tesla rival.

The boss says don't worry about charging: (SOUNDBITE) (English) POLESTAR CEO, THOMAS INGENLATH, SAYING: "I think you will experience that having a fully charged car in the morning is very enjoyable, not having to go to the petrol station." Regular new cars like the Renault Clio all getting electric versions.

But the Ami One is Citroen's vision of future urban mobility.

The box on wheels is designed for car sharing.

Cheap and cheerful... no one's likely to call it a hypercar.
