The UAE Green Festival opened with the Green Auto Show in Dubai.
The Green Auto Show is where automakers showcase their latest eco-friendly vehicles.
On display were two rather expensive plug-in vehicles: Porsche Panamera S E-Hybrid and BMW i8.
The Porsche Panamera S E-Hybrid packs 416 hp and zipss from 0-60 mph in 5.2 seconds. Top speed is 167 mph.
The BMW i8 is powered by a 1.5-liter turbocharged three-cylinder engine and an electric motor. It scoots from 0 to 62 mph in 4.4 seconds and boasts a top speed of 155 mph.
Both vehicles will be sold in Dubai and are expected to be popular there. The Panamera S E-Hybrid is readily available in several countries around the globe. The BMW i8 launches in select countries this summer.
