After 2 years of COVID-19 related cancellations, the New York International Auto Show is back.
From April 15-24, consumers will finally be able to experience first-hand their favorite and futuristic vehicles that manufacturers have to offer. In a true “price bloat” year, it’s clear that prices are at the heart of consumer conversations as manufacturers continue to pull back. With more than 150 vehicles on the registry from more than 25 manufacturers, consumers have the opportunity to ask questions of public relations staff, engineers and even influential design personnel. Enjoy sitting in vehicles, experiencing hands-on operation, while enjoying what the 122nd New York International Auto Show has to offer.
Did we mention the 250,000 square feet of indoor EV fun? Enjoy the first floor, EV Test Fest from Chevrolet, Kia, Nissan and Volvo and sign up to drive them on the indoor track. Ford and Hyundai will incorporate EV test tracks into their own screens on the ground floor while others have a dedicated EV-only floor. “Today we see a future that is electric, and the New York Auto Show is once again at the forefront of the process by which potential car buyers come to understand, desire and ultimately buy the products. incredible things the auto industry has to offer,” said Mark Schienberg, president of the New York Auto Show.
While enjoying three floors of fan-fare, Toyota’s driving experience at Hyundai’s on-site exhibition and track as well as Jeep’s outdoor obstacles. If exotics are your cup of tea, NYIAS features supercars and hypercars as well as one-of-a-kind vehicles from Koenigsegg, Lamborghini, Rolls-Royce and many more.
In our exclusive interview with Lamborghini CEO Stephen Winklemann, it was a great discussion about power and design. “For Lamborghini, our future goal is to rethink current models, develop electric vehicles and roll out hybrid models for our consumers. The importance of design remaining a priority, the exclusivity of our models and personalization for our customers are equally important. Recognition of our brand has been and always will be what separates Lamborghini from the rest,” said Winklemann.
With all the vehicle craze and continued demand for new vehicles, check out the auto show and enjoy some of the vehicles we’ve already reviewed this year, like Jeep’s redesigned Grand Cherokee or even the Genesis GV70. What about the new Jeep Grand Wagoneer L or the Ford Bronco Raptor? Did we mention the Chrysler Airflow? Yes, they will be there as well as a slew of other novelties.
