They will be joining a pretty distinguished list of other car companies to jump from the Detroit ship. Ferrari, Rolls-Royce, Land Rover and Porsche won't be there. Neither will their compatriots from Suzuki Motor Corp.. Perhaps with all this freed-up floor space the powers-that-be will have to have to let some Chinese companies, like BYD with its electric cars and Volt-competitor plug-in hybrids, out of the basement. Maybe they should make a deal with a few of America's green up-and-comers like Aptera or Tesla to display some excitement-generating product. GM's new pal Fisker Automotive would probably love to bring a bit of good Karma to Detroit Auto Show again. However it all goes down, we'll be there to cover all the green angles.
