Gearing Up For The Detroit Auto Show

Tomorrow I’ll be traveling to Detroit, MI to cover the North American International Auto Show (NAIAS). Judging by the itinerary and the documented experiences of Jeff McIntire-Strasburg from last year, it should be a busy trip.

I’ll be reporting on the latest developments in greener personal transportation with a particular focus on new gas-electric hybrid models, as well as concept vehicles powered by hydrogen fuel cells and other electric technologies. I’ll also report on advances in fuel efficiency represented by new production and concept vehicles, and, hopefully, get responses from auto industry executives and other insiders about their plans to meet the requirements set forth in the recently-passed US Energy bill.

Be sure to check back on Sunday for a potentially groundbreaking announcement from the show (that’s all I can say at this point). But I should also add a disclaimer: GM will be covering my expenses for the trip (as they do for a handful of bloggers) with the understanding that I may report freely.

So stay tuned…it should be an exciting week.
