The automaton indicates that the slope line resolves in the EVs

The car shows are back after a two-year pandemic break, but these days they are focusing on flashing new models and more to educate consumers about the future of electricity.

Why it is important: When it comes to electric cars, consumers face severe training curves, and so far car manufacturers and their dealers have done a bad job of explaining important issues such as battery efficiency, driving distance, and charging.

Offer news: The New York International Motor Show, which has been postponed four times since April 2020, will finally open to the public this week.

  • Demonstration shows are fewer than in previous years, and many brands are missing out on the show altogether.
  • But more attention will also be paid to the charging and refueling of vehicles, as there are several options for consumers to ride the EV on the internal test tracks.
  • For many people, this is likely to be their first experience with an electric car.

What they say: “If you haven’t paid attention to cars in the last five years, there’s a lot to learn,” IHS Markit analyst Stephanie Brinley told Axios.

  • In addition to the new electric trains, the cars are also loaded with new auxiliary driving technologies that require getting used to, he said.
  • A lot of people are interested in EVs, but in order to accelerate the adoption of cars, companies need to alleviate their concerns about switching to full electric, said Steve Saint, Kia America’s chief operating officer. “Here people get their questions answered.”

Details: Almost the entire lower level of the Jacob K. Convention Center. Javits is dedicated to electric cars and chargers.

  • Visitors to the indoor testing ground can ride with professional drivers in the new EVs Chevrolet, Kia, Nissan, Volvo and EV startups INDI and VinFast. (Guests are not allowed to drive.)
  • Ford and Hyundai have included short EV test tracks in their displays.
  • There is even a microbike lane dedicated to testing e-bikes and e-scooters.
  • A number of charging companies also have information displays on charging.
  • Among them is Gravity Mobility, the developer of a powerful fast-moving urban garage for cramped public garages. Its first 24-watt charging center will open in downtown Manhattan this spring.

Large image: Automakers still derive most of their profits from petrol cars, but most of their investment is in electric battery cars.

  • This makes car shows particularly challenging as companies try to keep the excitement for their regular cars and try to attract buyers into the future.

What to see: “There’s no doubt that 2035 or 2040 will definitely be completely electric,” says Bob Carter, vice president of sales at Toyota Motor North America. “The question is, how long does the transition period take? Is it a three-year transition or a 15-year transition?”

  • Toyota cares about the long-distance transition, so it still offers a full range of hybrids and hybrids for people who aren’t ready to deal with all the electricity.

Bottom line: Automotive shows are always focused on the future, no more than now, on the eve of the electric revolution.
