CES 2008: Cadillac Provoq concept debuts during Wagoner keynote!
On Tuesday at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, General Motors Chairman Rick Wagoner became the first auto executive to deliver a keynote address in the 41-year history of the show. After coming onto the stage in last year's Volt concept he began by running down some of the many innovations the auto industry has produced over the last century from the electric self-starter to the catalytic converter to electronic stability control. With all the electronic wizardry in modern cars, the automobile has essentially become the largest consumer electronics device in history. As such, Wagoner used this forum to publicly debut the Cadillac Provoq concept. We live-blogged the speech over on Autoblog and we got a chance to shoot a few pics of the vehicle although the CES security guards wouldn't let us on stage for our usual barrage.
