The lower level of Cobo Center, also known as Michigan Hall, will once again feature the MEDC EcoXperience ride and drive.

 

TROY, Mich. -- The incredible popularity of the Michigan Economic Development Corporation's (MEDC) EcoXperience ride and drive showcased at the North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) 2010 has led to an announcement of another innovative exhibit to be featured at the 2011 show.

"Smarter Living In Michigan" will be presented by long-time partner, the MEDC, and will be a key feature at the 2011 NAIAS. The exhibit will be comprised of two different areas, the MEDC Town Square and the adjacent Smarter Living Showcase, sponsored by DTE Energy.
Michigan Hall will be transformed into an interactive display showcase, highlighting the many ways that Michigan companies are building and creating eco-friendly communities and sustainable lifestyles.

"As the automotive industry continues to make incredible strides in environmentally-friendly production and technology, the features we offer to showcase at the NAIAS continue to evolve," said Barron Meade, Chairman, 2011 NAIAS. "Our partners at the MEDC have made it possible to help us transform Michigan Hall into an area that offers media, industry members and guests an experience unlike anything they'll see elsewhere."

Partnered with the MEDC, the NAIAS has been an enthusiastic supporter of alternative energy technology, allocating major portions of the show floor to "green" exhibits for the past few years, highlighting current and future environmentally-friendly developments in the automotive global community.

The MEDC Town Square and Smarter Living display area will again bring the ride and drive element indoors with a test track featuring electric-drive and hybrid vehicles from leading domestic and import manufacturers. Such technologies to be featured include solar cars, charging stations, batteries, transit connect, rolling chassis, and alternative energies.

  • A123 Systems - battery technology
