Autoline After Hours in NYC

The 2016 New York International Auto Show is open to the public right now, but last week it was opened just to the press, where several vehicles were introduced, like the 2017 Prius Prime, a plug-in variant of the non-plug-in Prius hybrid.

The 2016 New York International Auto Show is open to the public right now, but last week it was opened just to the press, where several vehicles were introduced, like the 2017 Prius Prime, a plug-in variant of the non-plug-in Prius hybrid. This vehicle will have an all-electric range of 22 miles, and can go up to 84 mph in EV mode (though one would imagine that the range would be truncated). While the final EPA fuel-efficiency numbers aren’t fully determined, Toyota anticipates 120 MPGe (which is miles per gallon equivalent, which in this case is a combination of the pure-electric range along with the conventional hybrid system), which they anticipate is the highest range for any plug in. In addition to the modifications to the powertrain, they’ve modified the vehicle fascias.

And there was much more, from the Lincoln Navigator Concept to the U.S. reveal of the Hyundai Ioniq (say “i-on-ic”), a car that comes in three distinct flavors: hybrid, plug-in-hybrid and full EV, to the global introduction of the Audi R8 Spyder, which features a naturally aspirated 5.2-liter V10 under its stylish hood.

These vehicles and more are discussed during this special edition of “Autoline After Hours,” captured at the Toyota stand in the Javits Center.

Joining John McElroy and me are Lauren Fix, The Car Coach, Tim Stevens, editor-at-large for CNET’s Roadshow, Dan Gray of Autobytel, and Mike Spinelli of The Drive.

It’s almost as good as being there.  Maybe. . .better?
