#169 Ice Sculptures at NAIAS

14 Jan , 2016   Video

This week we dedicate the entire show to a discussion about the Detroit Auto Show, more formally known as the North American International Auto Show or NAIAS. Detroit is the big one and that’s why we were very happy when one of our own, Mark Coughlan, could attend and give us a view from inside the first press day.

 

We talk about the Chevy Bolt, Tesla, the Chrysler Pacifica hybrid minivan, and much more. Join us for a solid hour of new cars, concept cars, things that make sense and things that don’t.
