LA Auto Show :: Update
Thursday, January 08, 2004
The Kiwami is now not going to be here according to Honda.
The Lexus is really named the RX 400h and should be the best debut vehicle
of the show.
Tango is the most interesting EV.
Prius is the most loved and popular.
Honda FCX is the best EV of the show according to me for emmisions and real
world usage. Honda has the best green presence with four wonderful vehicles,
FCX, GX, Civic Hybrid and insight.
Second in number of green cars is Intergalactic Hydrogen with three hydrogen
powered vehicles, the H2TOY, the hydrogen capable GreenHummer and the
concept vehicle HydrogenHummer.
GM has the most pathetic hybrid with the truck that is basically only good
for plugging in a blow dryer in the back seat and maybe a microwave in the
bed. Who needs the Hy-wire? Could have put hundredes of H2 ICE vehicles on
the road for the cost of this lame duck.
(Please edit this response or I will get my self in trouble)
[[ Too late... Remy C. ET webed :) ]]
Ford is a no show on the green vehicle front, the Escape Hybrid is now
being billed as a 2005 concept vehicle, quite different from what used to
be the 2003 production vehicle. Why don't they start with something small
and reasonable that the 95% can not overload and over tow with. A small
sedan would seem to make sense. No?
Mazda was the biggest let down for not bringing their hydrogen/gasoline
Porsche has the overall best vehicle of the show with their Carrera GT, as
compared to the Ford GT which sounds like it is going to blow the engine
when revved hard.
Lotus has the most desired car that you can not have quite yet with the
Braubus has the most impressive video presentation showing their work shop
that any car guy would love to have their car built in.
You'll see lots of photos on the Electrifying Times website by afternoon's
