We’re three weeks into 2019, and we’ve already seen two of the biggest auto events in the U.S. come and go — bringing a lot of electric vehicle news along with them.
The Consumer Electronics Show, held each year in Las Vegas, has quickly become one of the biggest auto shows in the world. As the auto industry navigates its way through a period of radical change, CES has become a critical venue for showcasing the mobility technologies of tomorrow, including 5G-connected autonomous cars, flying taxis and the latest and craziest in electric vehicle concepts.
Unveilings at the Detroit Auto Show were more down-to-earth by comparison. Familiar car brands rolled out production-style EVs, as well as a few futuristic prototypes. Other automakers talked a big game about their EV strategy, while putting their gas-powered trucks and SUVs front and center in their display.
In this week's column, we take a look at how some of the world's largest automakers used the two events to reveal their New Year's electric vehicle resolutions.
