The New York Auto Show is always a huge event for the auto industry and the car-buying public, but this year in particular a whole host of significant new products, ranging from bread-and-butter midsize sedans to flamboyant hypercars to high-tech hybrids, will make their debut at the Javits Center.
Nissan is set to unveil the newest version of the hugely popular Altima, while on the other end of the practicality and price spectrum, the Chrysler Group will be debuting the successor to the berserk Viper supercar, now badged an SRT and not a Dodge.
The tiny American startup Fisker will reveal the Atlantic, a luxury plug-in hybrid costing half as much as the company’s last model (the Fisker Karma) while retaining most of its eccentric good looks. (The auto site Edmunds.com has a sneak peek here.)
The New York Auto Show is open to the public from April 6th through April 15th at the Jacob Javits Convention Center in Manhattan from 10 AM to 10 PM (it closes at 7 PM on April 15th). Filip F. Bablievsky, a Verona High School senior and auto enthusiast, will have a full report on the show on Friday. Last year, Babalievsky came in first in the written examination for Automotive Services Marketing at the International DECA Competition. He has received a college scholarshipfrom the National Automotive Parts Association.
