The number of hybrid vehicles on offer in the UK is set to double over the course of the next 18 months after manufacturers launched a host of new versions at the Frankfurt show, which opened today (Tuesday).

There are currently six hybrids on sale in the UK (two from Honda and four from Toyota/Lexus), but fleet managers will benefit from a wider choice once versions from Lexus, Peugeot, Toyota and Honda hit the market from early next year.

Toyota and Lexus both revealed new hybrid versions at the show – Toyota the Auris hybrid with claimed sub-100g/km CO2 emissions, and Lexus the LF-Ch concept car which will bring the brand into the premium lower-medium sector.

While Toyota/Lexus has pioneered petrol/electric hybrids, Peugeot will usher in a new dimension when its first diesel-electric hybrid goes on sale in early 2011. The 3008 Hybrid4 will offer CO2 emissions of 99g/km, 200bhp and four-wheel drive.

Honda didn’t attend the show, but will reveal further details of its sporty CR-Z hybrid coupe at next month’s Tokyo show.

Hybrid launch timeline:

•2010 (early): Toyota Prius plug-in hybrid trial to begin with selected fleet customers.
•2010 (early): Honda CR-Z on sale.
•2010 (second-half): Toyota Auris HSD on sale.
•2011 (spring): Peugeot 3008 Hybrid4 on sale.
•2011 (early): Honda Jazz hybrid on sale.
•2011: Lexus LF-Ch

Why wouldn't they show up to show off the CRZ? Not good publicity?
The Tokyo Auto Show seems to be the pinnacle event for Honda to announce and show off alot more details about the CRZ.

Showing up at the Frankfurt show may have just spoiled some of the anticipation and excitement for the Tokyo show.
