I think we can confirm that the Volvo Hybrid is a XC60 Plug-in Hybrid Concept.

I know it is, I'm going to watch the Dart reveal before I have to go to school.

A3 concept maybe? It's probably a typo.

the NSX Concept will be one of those concepts that I know will disappoint me but i'm still so very stoked about. I'll see it in person and probably scratch the back of my ear while reading the specs. LeSigh Honda.

sounds like we'll be seeing a Q3 concept and the production A3 (unless by "followed by" they mean at a future show)

What pisses me off about NAIAS is that now they show Lambo, Ferrari, RR, etc. only at the "Gallery" event. Beats the whole definition of Auto Show on International scale, you don't see that anywhere else (Geneva, Paris, Moscow, etc). People who buy these cars don't go to auto shows anyway, they go to dealerships. But these cars do bring a different excitement level to public car shows.

Oh and tickets to "Gallery" event are $500...

First time i realize that the upper luxury brands are not displayed on the regular show. Lambos/Ferraris/RR/AM and others have a one-day show in a seperate place "The Gallery".

Price? $500

What a shame..seems the regular show is not allowed to even look at these cars..

I go there every year..but with this I guess I am going to reconsider...Not gonna make the trip to watch toyotas/datsuns/mazdaz and co
