Now that the 2011 Geneva Motor Show has come and gone, it goes without saying that the event was arguably the biggest and most successful auto show since the 2009 IAAs in Frankfurt, Germany.

Some might contend that, but as far as we’re concerned, its been a while since we had an auto show that has been as widely attended by almost all automakers in the world quite like what we saw in Geneva.

And while we may have been introduced to a lot of the cars that were launched in Geneva beforehand, there were still some models, mostly of the concept variety, that took us by surprise.

Most of these models weren’t previewed before the event so when the Geneva Motor Show opened its doors, just about everybody in attendance and those keeping tabs over the Web didn’t see these cars coming.

But now that they’re here, we can take a look at the models that made the 2011 Geneva Motor Show that much more interesting.

The Geneva Show was definitely a great spectacle. I really like the fact that a lot of the manufacturers have introduced a wide variety of hybrid cars here.

The thing that I sought the most here is the number of hybrids that they will bring to the show. And I was really impressed that they have actually brought in quite a lot.

They really had a impressive lineup for this year. I also really like that they have included a lot of concept cars here, which adds more
to the excitement of the show..

It is only now that I realized how many cars were brought in for the Geneva Car show. And all of these vehicles truly are worth of the spot that they were given in the show.
