Inside, visitors can sit in the car, open the hood, and get a feel for what the car feels like away from the dealership pressure. Even, will be onsite just to see.
Cardenas said that as technology advances and people spend more time in their cars, buying a new vehicle is like choosing a new personal assistant. She pointed to voice-activated features and automatic amenities.
Electrification shines the spotlight indoors at the show, where the entire “ecosystem” is on display.
“We actually have an indoor EV test track, with Kia, BMW, Hyundai and possibly Mini coming up so people can get a feel for it and experience it,” Cardenas said. . “We want to introduce electric vehicles, charging companies, solar companies, self-driving cars, Arcimotos, all-electric Lynx city buses and automated shuttles.”
