NAIAS always showcases the latest and greatest in the auto industry. This year’s event boasted over 102,000 attendees who witnessed vehicle reveals, exclusive previews, and key industry events. At Gage we love to attend to show each year to see trends and new concept cars. However, there is another very important section that can get looked over. Hall E of the event was a select area of the NAIAS which features work done by universities, nonprofits, and the Army.
College and high school students from all across the Americas were able to attend the show to compete in creating hybrid vehicles, which they then get to race. This portion of the show is very important to our company as we place a strong focus on STEM education and sustainability. This competition allows students to get real world experience with building and racing their vehicles and get to meet and interact with racing and automotive professionals. We were able to see some innovative hybrid vehicles, including the Solar Car from the University of Michigan.
