While some of the automakers that skipped the 2009 Detroit Auto Show are apparently returning for 2010, there still won't be enough to fill up the basement. As a result, the EcoXperience exhibit will be back again for a second year. The landscaped track on the lower level of Cobo Hall will provide attendees the opportunity to try out a variety of electric drive vehicles.The last show featured the likes of the Mitsubishi iMiEv, Ford Escape PHEV, and GM's fuel cell Chevy Equinox.

Perhaps this year, Ford and Nissan will add the Focus and Leaf BEVs. In addition to the driving track downstairs, the main floor will have a 37,000-square-foot static exhibit featuring electric cars. The Electric Avenue display will have 20 different EVs from a variety of manufacturers.

      I think I drooled a little bit.

      I would SO love to go to this. It sounds like a fantastice display of EV's plus the opportunity to actually drive some.
