This year’s New York International Auto Show (NYIAS) is going to be held Fri, March 30th – Sun, April 8th, 2018 ( Mon – Sat: 10am – 10pm Sun: 10am – 7pm ) at Jacob Javits Convention Center 11th Ave. (between 34th & 40th St.) (click here for location map).

According to NYIAS website 1 million car enthusiasts visit the show every year which makes it one of the largest and most popular auto shows globally.

The 2017 New York International Auto Show was inaugurated by the New York state Governor Andrew Cuomo — as part of his government’s green initiative, he said;

I encourage New Yorkers to consider electric vehicles and help take us a step closer to achieving our goal of reducing emissions 40% by 2030.

All 30 car models were present at NYIAS 2017 for which the  New York government offered up to $2,000 rebate as part of their $70 million commitment to eco-friendly cars.

Last year’s Earth Day also fell between the show dates which continued from April 14 – 23, 2017 — to celebrate Earth Day the show featured 60 Hybrid, Plug-in Hybrid and Electric cars from different manufacturers.

Tesla has a history of not joining the auto-shows, therefore they were missing from the fleet besides being the leaders in green vehicle movement.

Among the most highlighted green vehicles were GM’s Chevrolet Bolt, Rimac Concept One, BMW i3, Jaguar i-Pace, Lucid Air, Honda Clarity, Nissan Leaf, Hyundai Ioniq, Toyota Mirai and Prius among others (full list below).
