[DML] Consumer Reports Future of the Car day

This article says they will have an Electric DeLorean there!


Just wondering if it is the Long Island owner's car (sorry I forget your name at the moment) or the Tilley car purchased by the Brandys?

Ether way be sure to take plenty of pictures and share your experience with us all!

Countdown to the future – Consumer Reports Future of the Car day

This Friday, September 26th, Consumer Reports with host the first-ever Future of the Car day at our 327-acre Auto Test Center in Connecticut. This invitation-only event will bring together automotive industry innovators, leading-edge vehicles, and media to experience the cars of tomorrow and discuss the technology that will pave the road to a greener future.

Given the "future" theme, we will employ one of today’s increasingly popular technologies for communicating: Twitter.  By following our Twitter feed, you can read the latest developments from our track day event. We will share news, views, and goings on through postings that stretch no more than 140 characters. You can monitor the Twitter channel, sign up as a Follower, or subscribe to the feed.

Consumerreportstwitter In addition, our staff reporters will be covering the event in the blog. Expect coverage through the day Friday and well into next week. Our team and guests will have a lot of ground to cover, with the day packed with test track demonstrations, panel discussions, and ride/drive opportunities.

Numerous green machines are expected, including the Audi Q7 diesel, BMW 123D diesel, BMW Hydrogen 7, Chevrolet Equinox fuel-cell, Ford Escape plug-in hybrid, Honda FCX Clarity, Lincoln MKS EcoBoost, Mercedes-Benz ML320 diesel, Nissan X-Trail fuel-cell SUV, and even an electric-powered DeLorean. Consumer Reports will also have a variety of hybrids on hand, and a surprise…

In addition, representatives from Auto X Prize will be in attendance, along with several competing teams. The X Prize foundation is offering a $10 million prize for creating a car that gets 100 mpg; can be mass produced; and could be sold for a reasonable price. Meeting the people and machines involved in this event should prove quite interesting.

Follow along in the blog and on Twitter as we chronicle the insights, developments, and adventures from the Future of the Car day.
