Green Vehicles and Technology Electrify 2010 North American International Auto Show

Detroit, MI - December 18, 2009 - Media, government officials, the global auto industry and the public will see fresh exhibits highlighting "green" technology at the 2010 NAIAS. The show marks the debut of
Electric Avenue presented by The Dow Chemical Company on the main show floor, a 37,000 square-foot area dedicated to showcasing the latest in electronic vehicles and technology.

"NAIAS is proud of the history we have in bringing innovative ideas to a world-wide audience, and the all-new Electric Avenue is going to show visitors from around the globe where the future of automotive technology is headed," said Doug Fox, chairman, 2010 NAIAS. "This effort allows for more than doing what is trendy by addressing a necessary think-tank of discussion that will dictate where the global auto industry will go in 2010 and beyond. The NAIAS is proud to have a sponsor such as The Dow Chemical Company that understands the value of these efforts. Its endorsements of this activity allow the show to continue to be a thought-provoking leader to an industry with significant worldwide and economic impact."

This new feature is set to dovetail perfectly with the returning Michigan Economic Development Corporation (MEDC) EcoXperience in Michigan Hall that will once again feature a quarter-mile track winding through a landscape designed after Michigan's natural beauty.

  1. That is really disappointing. Most of those designs are totally impractical. Except for the Nissan Leaf, the iMiev, and BYD, none of those vehicles will ever be widely used.
    What happened to the Ford Focus BEV, the Volvo Recharge, Opel Ampera, and other REAL concepts?
    The Michelin Active Wheel is awesome! I believe it is the future of many passenger cars.

    Bad stuff?

  2. yup i agree..... another thing is that there is always a catch, if electric cars are cheap to use then they cost us initiallly so much that if u divide it by the milege u will get from it in your routine use then, after using it for 2-3 years you will actually start saving money;-((( isnt it ironic
