The week-long 2016 Chicago Auto Show, which culminated this past weekend at McCormick Place, featured an extensive array of vehicles. Some of the vehicles on display included hybrids, electric, convertibles, crossover, diesel, economy and sports cars, to name a mere few.
Examples of the electric car technology at the auto show could be seen in two of the more prominent of the bunch, the Nissan Leaf and the Chevrolet Volt. However, many more such cars were present as well. For the record, electric cars come in a few different forms, such as battery-powered only and extended range electric. The latter will operate until the charge of its battery runs out, then it switches to gasoline.
There were also numerous hybrid cars on display at the auto show. In no particular order, a few of them were the 2017 Chrysler Pacifica, 2017 Kia Optima Hybrid, the 2017 Lincoln MKZ, the Mercedes-Benz S and the Porsche Panamera E-Hybrid. The main allure of the hybrid vehicle is that it utilizes two different energy sources for its power. Hybrids are highly efficient in improving fuel economy.
