DETROIT -- Entering the North American International Auto Show’s main floor at Cobo Hall can’t be done without seeing the latest models based on alternative power.

Chief among these was the battery-powered Electric Drive from Smart car, whose engine resources were located in the trunk area. Coming equipped with charging options of 240 or 110 voltage (which take a respective 4-5 or 7-8 hours to fully charge), its role seems destined for domestic road travel with a varied mph of +30 on town roads and 40 on highways.

Even natural gas-based vehicles, however, seek to provide breakthrough in compatibility, especially in the 2012 Veloster by Hyundai. With mileage of 40 to the gallon, the Veloster seems to suggest a promised drift in its cruising capabilities the same way older coupes had. For its summer release, it is expected to start out at a price of $17,000.
