Toyotas first "Highway to the Future: Mobile Hybrid Event" in San Jose

Toyota has pegged the San Jose auto show for the first " Highway to the Future: Mobile Hybrid Experience" event. There will be driving simulators, a chance to evaluate your carbon footprint and information on hybrids and other alternative-fuels. Other hybrids are expected to be at the show as well, including the new Ford Escape and Mariner Hybrids.

Small cars are expected to be a major attraction at the San Jose show, as small cars are big sellers in California. In fact, this article even says that small cars such as the Toyota Yaris and Honda Fit were the fastest growing segment in California through the first nine months of the year.

The San Jose show is put on by Motor Trend magazine. It will run from next Thursday through the following Monday. The show is in its thirteenth year. I know most are looking forward to the Detroit show, but if you live on the other side of the country, you could check this one out.

The next Highway to the Future event is in Washington D.C. and will run from January 24-28.
