Detroit Auto Show Shows Off an Electric Future

The North American International Auto Show in Detroit opens next week with "press days" slated for Monday and Tuesday and it promises to be a major "electric" event.

Fuel efficiency finally takes center stage, although the industry economic woes have obviously reduced the size of the stage.

Ford will show off a redesigned Focus and Honda, Toyota and VW will all show off hybrid concept cars. Audi, BMW and Fiat will put their newest electric cars on display.

China's BYD Auto is slated to take space on the show's "Electric Avenue" floor space too.

Cadillac and Buick will roll out new and concept models but Chyrsler and its partner Fiat will reportedly have a thin appearance except for an electric concept version of the Fiat 500 minicar that is planned to be displayed.

Maybe electric is finally here? We'll see.
