A car that fights evil

Nice slide show, Lauren. My favorite is the Green Lantern Kia. I'm a sucker for gimmicks -- and I'm also a sucker for cars that fight evil. Go Batmobile!

Thanks Rob! The Green Lantern Kia was definitely a cool car. Green is my favorite color so all the green pulled me in. I was especially loving the green tint. And it fights evil? Double win!

Well, after the first slide, the McLaren 12C, I found the rest of it sort of slow.

Nice job, Lauren, of giving us a broad sampling of what was on display. Going fast is the most fun, but I am also fascinated by the use of materials and other cool gadgets that are increasingly being put into the cars that us "normal" folks might actually be able to afford.

I understand that in the movie about the Green Lantern, they used a '71 Dodge Challenger. I didn't see the movie. For the next movie, it will be interesting to see if they use the Kia.

Agreed, Naperlou. But at $569,000, it's a tad pricey.

The Subaru Crosstrek Hybrid is also green Lauren. Green is making a comeback.

I like the electric taxi, although I do wonder how an all-electric taxi will do, given the range and recharge limitations. The Prius is one of the all-time great taxis, largely because it lasts 300,000 miles and gets more than 40 mpg, so the hybrid technology more than pays for itself.

Looks like you have a lot of company among people who like gimmicks, Rob. We've got Superman and Green Lantern here, and the Batmobile's always good at drawing a crowd.

It is interesting to see the shift in emphasis by the car manufacturers.

From your pictures I counted 13 hybrids, 8 gas and 5 electric vehicles. Hybrid seems the way to go until and if batteries get better.
