Tesla to Take Center Stage at N.Y. Auto Show
April 26, 2019—Tesla's competition made a debut at the New York International Auto Show this week, as noted by CNBC.
All told, more than 40 vehicles using some form of battery power were on display.
That includes not only conventional hybrids such as the Toyota Prius, but a long list of more advanced technologies, including plug-in hybrids and pure battery-electric vehicles. And automakers as diverse as Ford, Hyundai and Daimler AG announced plans to roll out dozens more of those plug-based models over the next several years.
Two of the three finalists for World Car of the Year at the 2019 New York show are fully electric.
The Jaguar I-Pace, a long-range SUV, not only took Car of the Year honors but also was named World Car Design of the Year and World Green Car of the Year.
