The 2013 North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) will be held from 14th to 27th January, and will be held in Detroit, US.
Last year’s NAIAS show was a huge success, attracting 771,000 people and 5,000 journalists from 58 countries in the presence of 42 brand new vehicle debuts. This year’s show is predicted to be even more impressive.
The 9 day public show will be preceded by a few days of press and industry events, where automotive professionals and journalists from around the world will meet. The public show, starting on the 19th January, will be the chance for the general public to experience America’s largest and most prestigious automotive showcase.
All major car manufacturers will be present at the event, most with a new model to be unveiled. Many manufacturers will be showing off their latest low emission, green technologies – an element of the show that is becomingly increasingly important year on year.
Volvo will be introducing their new plug-in hybrid electric vehicle, the XC60 Concept. Based on a similar idea to their V60 Plug-in Hybrid model, the XC60 will offer both pure electric drive and the power of a combustion engine. Volvo will also be showing other low emission vehicle at the event.
BMW will be presenting their new efficient sub-brand – the BMW i series. The i3 all-electric car will launch later this year and the plug-in hybrid sports car, the i8, is expected to reach markets in 2014. Both these cars will be on show at BMW’s stand this year in Detroit.
Nissan have announced that they will be showing a new and radical concept and a supermini hatchback. The spotlight at the Nissan stand is most likely to be the upgraded 2013 Nissan LEAF model, which has just started production in the US.
The show promises to be a busy and bustling mix of new vehicles from a wide range of manufacturers – visitors will be able to view both production and concept vehicles that are likely to populate the global vehicle market in the near future, with green issues and fuel efficiency now being a major factor across the range.
Next Green Car will be keeping an eye on the latest news from the show when it begins, and reporting on any exciting fuel efficient model announcements and other green issues.
