2022 New York International Auto Show highlights electric vehicles
The annual New York International Auto Show returned to the Javits Center in Midtown for the first time in two years, with a showcase featuring close to one thousand different vehicles and exhibitors on display.
For the first time ever the auto show also included a section dedicated exclusively to micro-mobility, featuring a range of different electric bikes and scooters from companies such as Jetson, Jupiter Bike, Radio Flyer, Spark Cycleworks, and Veo Ride.
Electric cars were a major focal point of this year’s exhibition, shedding light on the many different ways car companies are breaking from the dependency on fossil fuels. One exhibit even included an indoor test track, giving people a chance to take a ride in one of several new EV model cars.
The auto show also served as a platform for major car manufacturers to debut several soon-to-be-released 2023 models of vehicles including the Hyundai Palisade, Jeep Wagoneer, Kia Telluride, Kia Niro, Nissan Leaf, Nissan Pathfinder, Subaru Outback, VinFast, and Volkswagen ID.

The two-week-long auto show also featured a variety of vintage cars dating as far back as 1909. Included among them were Mario Andretti’s formula-one racecar, and Elvis Presley’s 1956 Lincoln Continental Mark II.
Another interesting highlight was variety of different concept models vehicles, such as the Toyota Rhombus, Chrysler Airflow Graphite, Deus Vayanne, and Genesis X Spedium.
