Smaller, electric cars reign at Detroit auto show

Baltimore Sun

Electric, hybrid and small cars will grab center stage at the Detroit auto show this week, as the industry adapts to a world reshaped by recession and environmental worries. Ford wants to build on success in midsize sedans and reignite small-car sales, while Hyundai aims to extend last year's triumph in budget-conscious models. GM and Chrysler will start fresh with electric vehicles but also try to boost their small-car credibility. Toyota hopes to solidify its dominance in hybrids. The new models must be successful if automakers are to reverse last year's 21 percent sales plunge.
