Alongside a wide range of updated, new, or new-to-Europe cars and concepts at the 2011 Geneva Motor Show, Ford is planning to reveal an all-new vehicle it calls "groundbreaking." The debut happens at 2:30 p.m. local time March 1 in Geneva.

Ford of Europe Chairman and CEO Stephen T. Odell will host the unveiling. So far, there's very little known about the promised groundbreaker, however. Rumors around a hybrid, Fiesta-based microvan/MPV have some credibility, but Ford may have something yet more exciting up its sleeve.

Also on display at the Ford booth in Geneva will be: the Vertrek concept; the Focus Electric; the C-MAX Energi plug-in hybrid; the Fiesta RS WRC; a new global Ranger Wildtrak; and a range of Ford's in-car technologies.

We'll keep you posted on Ford's "groundbreaking" plans for Geneva as the show draws closer.
