It's now less than 24 hours until the first press conferences begin at the 2009 North American International Auto Show in Detroit and we'll be there in full force with Sebastian and myself joining a contingent of the Autoblog team at Cobo Hall. However, just like kids waiting to open their Christmas presents, we can't wait and we're always snooping around for hints. The latest comes to us courtesy of Kicking Tires and the photo above. Apparently an electric vehicle is being unloaded for the auto show and its based on an existing vehicle already on sale here. Given the type of truck this is clearly not a full size vehicle and a close look at the photo reveals its probable origins. The visible part of the vehicle looks like a GEM NEV. Whether this is an updated GEM or a modified version produced by some other company is unknown. Either way we'll be searching it out in the darkest corners of Cobo Hall.
