The New York Auto Show is kicking off with some slick vehicle rollouts that might help it rival Detroit’s big annual event.
A more cushy interior and more quiet ride, GM hopes the new Impala will wow purchasing customers, even though a large portion of recent versions of the classic model have gone to rental agencies. And Nissan’s new taxi, the NV200, got a glowing intro from New York City’s Mayor Mike Bloomberg.
But the biggest splash at the event may be made by the Transition—a flying car from a Massachusetts company that costs a mere $279,000. Better keep stuffing that car-shaped piggy bank!
