Auto show revs up in Minneapolis

March 11, 2014 by  

On Saturday, March 8, the Twin Cities Auto Show opened at the Minneapolis Convention Center and will be continuing until this weekend.

No doubt the Minnesota Auto Dealers Association, which boasts a membership of 400, turned to a variety of printing services to announce this show to those who want to see the latest in what the industry has to offer as part of the annual show.

The event features a wide range of automobiles, but attendees are expected to be most interested in big trucks with good gas mileage, according to executive vice president of the Minnesota Auto Dealers Association Scott Lambert. Trucks are especially popular in Minnesota given the rough winters.

Many of the participants at the show come from the local area. According to Bob Dunn, a Chrysler area sales manager, the vehicles that Chrysler will be displaying come from Fury Motors in South St. Paul, which will be displaying a 2105 model of the redesigned Chrysler 200.

Luther Fiat of Minneapolis will showcase the auto of the year as selected by the Auto Dealers Association—a new four door Fiat 500L.

There will also be many fuel-efficient cars, such as the Chevy Volt, the all-electric BMW-i3, the Mitsubishi MIEV Evolution II, and a solar car designed by a group of students at the University of Minnesota.
