GM brings performance, style to NY Auto Show
Pontiac introductions include three world premiere vehicles

NEW YORK -- General Motors’ global design talents come together as GM showcases several award-winning concept vehicles at the 2008 New York International Auto Show. Headlining the event will be Pontiac with three world premiere vehicle introductions. Saab will also unveil an environmentally friendly compact sports luxury concept vehicle to North America.
Concept vehicles from China, Europe, the United States and Australia emphasize design, performance and fuel-saving technologies across GM’s eight vehicle brands – Chevrolet, Buick, Pontiac, GMC, Hummer, Saturn, Saab and Cadillac.
Some of the notable concepts you will see at the show include:
  • The Buick Riviera concept, unveiled to acclaim at the 2007 Shanghai Auto Show, marks the return of a renowned Buick nameplate and communicates a new global design vocabulary for the Buick brand.
  • Inspired by Scandinavian design values and a respect for the environment, the crossover Saab 9-4X BioPower Concept combines the benefits of turbocharging, direct injection and variable valve timing for the first time with high octane E85 fuel (85 percent ethanol and 15 percent gasoline).
  • The HUMMER HX concept, a compact, E85-capable vehicle, features a design based on the ideas of a trio of young designers who are new to the HUMMER studio.
  • The Cadillac Provoq Fuel Cell Concept, a petroleum-free, hydrogen-powered vision of the future of luxury transportation.
  • Unveiled at the 2008 Chicago Auto Show, the GMC Denali XT concept offers a 50-percent increase in combined fuel economy over comparable small pickup trucks when running on gasoline, and incorporates a new, muscular form in a performance-styled, hybrid sport-utility truck (SUT).
