Mercedes BlueZero, Tesla's Roadster, and the Chevy Volt at NAIAS

Well, as most of you have read, I went to the North American International Auto Show last weekend with a camera in hand and took pictures for you guys of the Mercedes BlueZero concept and the Tesla Roadster...



http://ecomodder.com/forum/showthrea...play-6808.html

This weekend I went back, but this time I had a VIDEO camera! I took an (almost) 360 movie of the BlueZero, and a video of the Chevy Volt also!

Hi Sean, and thanks!

It sure is loud there...any dates, or specs on the BlueZero? I see it says "Lithium Ion Battery" on the floor beside it.

Nope, they didn't even have any brochures or anything. Just a little business card that said to go to MBUSA.com/Models and on the back is has the access code: A709154

But, there is no info on the BlueZero there

Interesting, the BlueZero isn't even a Kamm-Back design.

I just read quite amazing things regarding Toyota and Nissan slowing down in the US, but also news about a "Blue Benz hybrid going to China" is a similarity; a very very surprising turn of events indeed! I don't know for sure what is going on!

Sean T. -

Thanks for posting this. It's nice to see the Blue-Zero in 360. When I look at it, I keep thinking of the Ford Fiesta/Mazda 2 that's on the horizon.
