New York Auto Show has Concept Hybrid Cars

The New York International Auto Show will feature over 17 concept cars with various approaches to new and developing technologies. The Press will get in on April 4 and 5, while the public is invited in from April 6 through the 15th.

There are several hybrids being featured, but none of them are new.

The Ford Airstream comes with a plug-in hydrogen hybrid fuel cell drivetrain that operates under electric power at all times. It was influenced by Airstream's design and the cult film 2001: A Space Odyssey.

The Chevy Volt, which caused quite a stir when it was introduced for GM will also be there. The Volt is designed to use the E-Flex Propulsion System, making it capable of running on electriciy, gas, E85 or biodiesel. By plugging in, the Volt is capable of running on battery power for 40 miles. Once the charge wears down, the secondary power source, whether it be gas, E85 or biodiesel can help propel the vehicle down the road. Unlike the other concepts featured here, GM is looking to actually produce a version of the Volt as soon as the battery technology catches up.

The Toyota FT-HS will also be at the NY Auto Show. The FT-HS is Toyotas hybrid sports concept. Small but powerful, it is a front-engine, rear drive sports car that can go 0-60 in about four seconds. It gets 400 hp from a V-6, 3.5L engine coupled with Toyotas Synergy Drive.

Saabs BioPower 100 will also be there. The BioPower runs on E100 (bioethanol).
