The Consumer Electronics Show (CES) isn’t exactly known for delivering a plethora of automotive goodies for our undivided attention. In fact, this major technology-related trade show has presented some of the greatest tech products such as this year’s immense number of tablets and 4G smartphones. Not exactly our cup of tea, right?
Wrong. This year’s CES was chock full of auto gizmos and gadgets. So much so, that we had to go back and try to cover them all. In researching the products presented at CES, we came across many automakers who chose this tech show, as opposed to actual auto shows, to showcase their technological advancements in car-to-driver communication. Yes, we said communication. Turns out, a computer or a smartphone can provide access to an array of features and notifications for your vehicle, making it that much easier for drivers to check on the charge levels of their electric ride. Other automakers are finding better ways to charge up their electric cars; without a plug.
Sound cool? We thought so too, so hit the jump to check out some of these ahead-of-the-game technological advancements.
.. kind of.. we found the perfect fit for Mr.T twenty first century ride, and it is a GMC like in the good old times. Roll cage up to the windshield, massive all terrain tires and drug dealer wheels as well. Two quick red stripes on the side and they are good to go save the world.
The Ecojet car , presented in early 2007 was present at CES 2008. The 650hp turbine engine supercar isn’t even one year old but it is already forgotten and doing some dirty promotional job on a audio booth, next to Joe Shmol tuned car.
