This year's New York International Auto Show featured a mix of cars ranging from electric vehicles designed for urban environments to supercars with price tags over half a million dollars. From March 29 through April 7, more than a million people visited the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center in New York City to explore 846,000 square feet of vehicles.
