It’s a record year for the 2017 Montréal International Auto Show with manufacturers unveiling five North American premieres, in addition to having nine new electric vehicles that visitors can not only “kick the tires” on, but can actually drive.
Hyundai will unveil the Sport Concept, Kia will present the new Rio and Mitsubishi will have the GT-PHEV concept. Subaru and Toyota have embargoed their premieres.
Among the 40 Canadian premieres, Chevrolet is by far the busiest manufacturer with the 2018 Equinox, 2017 Cruze Hatch and diesel, 2017 Silverado HD Duramax, 2017 Camaro ZL1 and 1LE and the 2017 Corvette GS.
All in all, more than 500 vehicles will be on display at le Plais des Congrès, Jan. 20-29. The show is open to the media first on Thursday.
