With marques like Ferrari, Lotus, Lamborghini, Porsche and Jaguar making headlines of the 2010 Paris Motor Show, it would not be hard to assume that unadulterated performance was the top priority of the show’s new product launches.

However, each and every one of these automakers, along with most every other manufacturer at the show, had a emphasis on efficiency and applications of lightweight materials – a significant sign of the auto industry’s sustainable evolution.

This week we will cover some of the most exciting and efficient cars featured at the 2010 Paris Motor Show.

First up is the Fisker Karma.

True to form, the Henrik Fisker-designed Karma (Fisker made a name for himself designing eye-candy like the Aston Martin DB9 and the BMW Z8) is hard to tell apart from the original concept.  And just as important, the production version of the 400+ horsepower plug-in hybrid is still capable of the originally projected 100+ mpg.

Stayed tuned on Tuesday for a look at the new Jaguar C-X75
