Future cars: Highlights from the Detroit Auto Show
There was plenty of in-car technology on display at CES 2013 in Las Vegas at the beginning of this month, but if you prefer your trade shows to be "all cars, all the time," there's no better fit than the annual North American International Auto Show (NAIAS).
Some of the highlights from this year's show included in-car safety technology from Mercedes and Volvo, a workhorse electric powertrain from VIA, concept cars boasting everything from front-mounted projectors to touchscreen-controlled paint jobs, and futuristic in-car entertainment systems that may spell doom for your trusty Auto Bingo cards.
The tireless team of Sarah Jacobsson Purewal and Melissa Riofrio have been running around Cobo Hall in Detroit this week, and they've sent the following dispatches from the show floor.
