OR, we could just not have lengthy political discussions in unrelated topics. Just a quick snipe or two, then back to the car show, eh?

CES used to stand for Consumer Electronics Show but now they (CTA, formerly aka CEA) IIRC claims it "doesn't" stand for anything. More info at https://ces.tech/ and yes... I noticed Ivanka Trump is a keynote speaker currently on the front of that page...

There has been a larger presence by automakers over the years. Previously, North Hall was mostly just aftermarket stuff (e.g. car stereo equipment, radar and laser detector, laser jammers).

On a somewhat related topic to this thread --- The Ford Mustang Mach-E will be coming to the San Diego Int'l Auto Show Jan. 1-5.

I don’t know how to list html links on this forum, so suggest searching:

Let's not sell Ivanka short. I've never seen a First Lady who can look more murderous so much of the time, and I've seen Pat Nixon.
You don't think she's the first lady, do you?

Lady? Possibly, if any.

According to the press release on the Ariya the 2020 Eplus will be there as well. Could I ask any of those going to the show to put up half a dozen pictures if possible?

Thanks in advance.

Not going and would probably boycott anyway, on account of Ivanka Trump being paid to be a keynote. Like she knows the fuck about anything other than being vapid.
I found the press release and what she'll be talking about: https://ces.tech/News/Press-Releases/CE ... 05be2e4383. I'm sure she's an "expert" on that subject. ;)

Not boycotting the show myself though.

I don't think "vapid" when I look at Ivanka. I think "murderous android who doesn't care if everyone knows it."

As I posted in another forum:

-- begin --
There were quite a few EVs/PHEVs on display at CES 2020.

I saw the Ford Mach-E, Byton (M-Byte?), Fisker Ocean, Paccar electric trucks (https://www.paccar.com/news/current-new ... -ces-2020/) and some plug-ins (PHEVs?) at FCA.

This is besides a Harley Livewire e-motorcycle, Audi eTron, Mercedes EQC (which I confirmed is delayed for the US until 2021), gen 2 Leaf, Nissan Ariya Concept and a eNV-200 (still not coming to the US, it seems) used to serve ice cream.

While I was at the Fisker booth, I saw Henrik Fisker talking to some folks. I asked a worker in the booth to confirm it was him.
-- end --

Also, there was Rivian's truck inside Amazon's booth and Sony's (!) concept EV.
