2009 Seen as Breakout Year for Hybrids
With Toyota Motor Corp. set to debut a concept version of a battery-powered electric vehicle and a slew of new hybrids slated to be unveiled, it's becoming clearer this year's show will be less about sexy designs and powerful 16-cylinder engines.
"I think every manufacturer is embracing the need for fuel efficiency," said Joe Serra, senior cochairman of the auto show. "I think the theme is going to be efficiency this year."
Serra said auto show organizers are close to announcing the addition of a central place where all manufacturers can display vehicles and information about their hybrid and electric vehicle programs.
