Manufacturers love to bring their electric concepts to California, and this year was no different. Most manufacturers had at least one plug-in model of some sort, either for sale or as a concept. There were a lot of impressive displays…and some a little less so.
Impressive: Chevy, Tesla, Hyundai, Jaguar, Zelectric, the Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid and the Cadillac CT6.
Conflicted: MINI’s Countryman Plug-In Hybrid.
Disappointing: Ford, VW/Audi, and of course every manufacturer with no plug-in models on display (Land Rover, GMC, Dodge, SRT, Jeep, Ram, Mazda, Lexus, Infiniti, Acura, Maserati, Alfa Romeo and Buick).
Check under the break for the gallery and some short impressions.
(Missing from the gallery – “Porsche Panamera 4 E-Hybrid Executive” Plug-In Hybrid, and any others they may have been showing (the 918 perhaps?), because Porsche’s booth was in a separate area which I missed, and a full-body photo of the Prius Prime Plug-In Hybrid because the photo I took of it was unfortunately out-of-focus)
