Last Thursday I attended my first event of the year, thanks to the She Buys Cars team! It felt great to be back in action, as a blogger and influencer that is. I thoroughly enjoyed my day serving as a She Buys Cars Ambassador at the Washington Auto Show. I spent hours swooning over hundreds of shiny vehicles during Industry and Media Day, courtesy of Hyundai and Genesis, at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center. It’s no secret that I love cars, hence the numerous #WNJDrives car reviews on the blog, so I was in my world that day!
As I walked through the show, I spotted this huge monster looking truck on the 2nd floor. Intrigued by it’s color and size, I headed over and started investigating. What kind of truck was this? Who would drive such a big car? Is this truck even allowed on the road? After a few minutes of exploring it’s interior, my questions were answered. The “huge monster looking truck” is called the ZH2 Fuel Cell Electric Army Vehicle and was developed and built by General Motors. The vehicle was built to test and evaluate the readiness of Fuel Cell propulsion – the action of driving or pushing forward – in military like environments.
I eventually made my way to the lower level where I was able to sit in on the Hyundai Ioniq presentation. I’m a huge fan of Hyundai vehicles, but I must say that I’m was even more impressed to find out about their life-time battery warranty for electric cars. Already known for having one of the best warranty programs in America, they’ve raised the stakes even higher! Their latest electric model, the Ioniq, will actually be one of the first to have this warranty feature.
From luxury to American made to minivans and sports cars, I viewed several vehicles at the Washington Auto Show. I was in awe quite a few times during the day when I had the chance to come face to face with some of my “Dream Cars”, including the Mercedes G-Class SUV. I mean who wouldn’t be a little excited to get a thorough look at his or her Dream Car?! Take a look at one of the the newest luxury cars on the market, the Genesis G90, as well as a few of the beauties I couldn’t help swoon over.
So tell me, have you ever been to an Auto Show? Also, what’s your Dream Car? Let me know!
