SAN FRANCISCO, CA – November 20, 2017 — The Bay Area’s largest and most prestigious auto exposition, the San Francisco 60th Annual International Auto Show opened to large crowds over the weekend and will run through Sunday, Nov. 26th including Thanksgiving Day, at the Moscone Center.

Auto Show enthusiasts have been eager to explore the newly remodeled Moscone Center which is filled with the 2018 new model cars, trucks, SUV’s, crossovers and alternative fuel vehicles on display from the world’s major manufacturers.

Front and center at this year’s show are vehicles and interactive exhibits featuring the latest in design and technology. Also prominent, are the newest innovations in driver assist, safety, infotainment and connectivity technology. “We are at the epicenter of technology and design here in San Francisco,” stated Kevin Diamond, Director of the San Francisco Auto Show. “It is a natural fit for car manufacturers to display and showcase their latest innovations in current production vehicles to our huge audience”.

Also of note, are the vast array of electric, hybrid and alternative fuel vehicles including several fuel cell cars.

Attendees who want to test drive an electric car can do so on Monday, Nov. 20 and Tuesday, Nov. 21 at the Plug-In Electric Vehicle Test Drive presented by PG&E. Vehicles scheduled to participate include: Audi, BMW, Chevrolet, Ford, Nissan and Volkswagen. Participants must have a valid driver’s license and be 18 years old.

New introductions are also prominent at this year’s auto show including some 2019 model year products. Several manufactures have also launched complete redesigns of their previous year vehicles.

“The buying cycle of cars is hitting another peak and manufacturers have responded with several redesigns in their factory line-up, says Diamond, — “more than I’ve seen in years past.” That’s the beauty of the San Francisco Auto Show, you can see all these new models, some that haven’t even hit showroom floors, get inside, take in the new car smell, get your questions answered by qualified product specialists all in a non-selling environment”.
