The 2016 Geneva Motor Show is right around the corner, and a number of electric cars, hybrids, and other green models are set to debut there.

As with any auto show, there will be a mix of concept cars and more down-to-earth production models.

This being a European show, there will also be a few green-car debuts that fall under the category of "forbidden fruit."

We've rounded up all of the significant green cars we're aware of so far, but more may be announced in the coming weeks.

For the latest updates in the days counting down to the show--media days start on Tuesday, March 1--head over to our show news hub.

Honda Civic Hatchback "Prototype"

A five-door hatchback was announced as part of the 10th-generation Civic lineup for the U.S. almost a year ago, and we'll get our first glimpse of that body style at the Geneva show.

Aside from a shadowy teaser image, Honda has not released any information on the hatchback, which it says will appear in "prototype" form at the show.

In the U.S., the hatchback will likely use the same powertrains as the Civic sedan and coupe, meaning buyers will choose between a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine, and a 1.5-liter turbocharged four.

The Civic hatchback is expected to go on sale in Europe in early 2017, with U.S. sales likely to start sometime after that.

2017 Hyundai Ioniq

Already shown in its home market of South Korea, the 2017 Hyundai Ioniq could be a rival for several different green cars.

That's because it will be offered with hybrid, plug-in hybrid and battery-electric powertrains. The car itself shares a platform with the 2017 Elantra compact sedan.

Hyundai has only shown the Ioniq Hybrid so far. It uses a model-specific 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine, working with a six-speed dual-clutch transmission and electric motor.

Perhaps we'll learn more about the plug-in hybrid and battery-electric versions in Geneva.

Or perhaps Hyundai will save that information for another appearance at the 2016 New York Auto Show, which takes place shortly after Geneva.

2018 Lexus LC 500h

The LC 500h is a hybrid version of the LC 500 luxury coupe Lexus unveiled at the 2016 Detroit Auto Show.

In place of that car's 5.0-liter V-8 engine, the LC 500h employs a 3.5-liter V-6 and a pair of electric motors that operate in a similar arrangement to the Hybrid Synergy Drive System used in previous Lexus and Toyota hybrids.

But the LC 500h's "Lexus Multi-Stage Hybrid System" also includes a four-speed automatic transmission to augment the "e-CVT" arrangement of electric motors. This creates a more involving driving experience, Lexus says.

Total system output is 354 horsepower, allowing the LC 500h to do 0 to 60 mph in under five seconds, according to the carmaker.

Morgan EV3 Three Wheeler

Morgan Electric 3 Wheeler

Anachronistic British carmaker Morgan is expected to unveil a production electric version of its 3 Wheeler at the Geneva show.

This will likely be a refined version of the EV3 that debuted at the 2015 Goodwood Festival of Speed.

While it's known for designs that predate World War II, Morgan is making a serious commitment to electrified powertrains.

In addition to the anticipated electric 3 Wheeler, Morgan plans to offer hybrid versions of all of its models by the end of the decade.

NanoFlowcell Quantino

Germany's NanoFlowcell AG will unveil an updated version of its Quantino flow-cell car that it claims is "production ready."

The company has unveiled multiple concepts over the years built around flow-cell batteries--which use the circulation of fluid to generate electricity.

Like the previous iteration of the Quantino, this version will use a 48-volt electrical system, with four electric motors providing propulsion.

Alongside the Quantino, NanoFlowcell will also show an updated version of its audacious Quant F sports car, which debuted at Geneva last year with a claimed 1,075 hp, 186-mph top speed, and 500-mile range.

Opel Ampera-e

Opel Ampera-E

The Opel Ampera-E is a re-badged version of the 2017 Chevrolet Bolt EV electric car.

It should be virtually identical to the Chevy, apart from some styling changes.

While it will wear Opel badging on the European continent, the Ampera-E will also be sold in the U.K. as a Vauxhall.

This all-electric model shares its name with a similarly badge-engineered version of the first-generation Chevy Volt.

There have been reports that GM will launch a new Ampera (minus the "E") based on the second-generation Volt, but nothing has been confirmed yet.

Ssangyong SIV-2 Concept for Geneva Motor Show

Ssangyong SIV-2 Concept for Geneva Motor Show

Ssangyong SIV-2

The SIV-2 (Smart Interface Vehicle) previews an upcoming hybrid crossover from Korean firm Ssangyong--a brand likely unfamiliar to most U.S. drivers.

It has a 1.5-liter turbocharged turbocharged four-cylinder engine, along with a 48-volt mild-hybrid setup that includes a single electric motor and 500-watt-hour battery pack.

Ssangyong also plans to offer plug-in hybrid and battery-electric versions of the eventual production model.

That model is still expected to be about two years away, and even when it does arrive, it's unlikely to be offered in the U.S.

Techrules TREV teaser image

Techrules TREV concept

Although it has nothing but a teaser image to show so far, Chinese startup Techrules says it will unveil an extended-range electric supercar concept in Geneva.

Like the Jaguar C-X75 concept from a few years ago, it will use turbines as range extenders.

That explains its name--Turbine-Recharging Electric Vehicle, or TREV.

Techrules claims the TREV will have 1,030 hp, and a total operating range of 1,242 miles on both battery and turbine power.

As with all automotive startups, though, the production prospects for this radical design are unclear.

Toyota C-HR

After previewing the model with multiple concepts, Toyota is finally ready to unveil the production version of its C-HR subcompact crossover.

When it reaches the U.S., the C-HR will be Toyota's second hybrid crossover, joining the recently-introduced RAV4 Hybrid.

It was originally supposed to be sold here as a Scion--the "youth brand" even showed a C-HR concept at the 2015 Los Angeles Auto Show last fall.

But Toyota's subsequent decision to kill Scion means the C-HR will receive Toyota badging here--just like everywhere else.

2016 Volkswagen Up!

2016 Volkswagen Up!

Volkswagen Up!

The Volkswagen Up! minicar is set to get some revisions, although it still won't be offered in the U.S.

The most significant change is a new turbocharged 1.0-liter three-cylinder engine, which joins a naturally-aspirated three-cylinder, plus battery-electric and natural-gas variants.

There are also some minor styling changes, a new 300-watt BeatsAudio sound system, and new infotainment systems.

The updated Up! goes on sale in Europe toward the middle of this year, but VW still has no plans to offer the tiny city car in the U.S.

Volkswagen crossover concept

One Volkswagen that may make it to the U.S. is a small crossover based on a concept the company will unveil in Geneva.

This concept is expected to be a refined version of the T-Roc crossover that debuted at the 2014 Geneva show.

It's also expected to ride on the same MQB platform as the Golf and other VW Group models.

There may also be a plug-in hybrid powertrain under the hood, something that could conceivably transition to a production version of this unnamed concept.

2017 Volvo V90

Volvo V90 T8 "Twin Engine"

The Volvo V90 station wagon set to debut in Geneva will likely include a T8 "Twin Engine" plug-in hybrid variant--just like the S90 sedan it's based on.

This powertrain includes a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that's both turbocharged and supercharged, plus an electric motor and 9.2-kilowatt-hour lithium-ion battery pack.

It debuted on the XC90 SUV, which shares the Volvo Scalable Product Architecture (SPA) platform with the S90 and V90.

Volvo hasn't confirmed when U.S. V90 sales will commence, but they likely won't start until after the launch of the S90.
