The Detroit auto show began on the 19th of this month. It's open to the public and will end on the 27th. Approximately sixty vehicles made their debut, with more than 500 cars being put on display. It is expected that more than half of the visiting public will be shopping for a new car, according to informally gathered polls.
Detroit is one of 65 shows that will be held in the U.S. this year, from a tiny one in Toledo to New York and Chicago gatherings that attract more than 1 million visitors each year. Detroit has been holding an auto show almost continuously since the early 1900s, when local dealers lined up a handful of cars alongside fishing and hunting gear.
The show is touted as being four complete shows in one package as it provides a preview for the media, industry, charity and nine days for the public.
