"coming hard" with some of the most ungainly looking cars ever made.

btw, the sticker on the nissan hybrid is likely to keep out journalists, not corporate spys. preproduction cars usually don't have all the fit and finish kinks worked out, things that journalists would likely skewer nissan for if they could get inside assuming that would be representitive of cars to come off the line en masse

The Chinese cars were ugly. Better than a Trabant...but still ugly.

Besides, I have high hopes for the Volt. If GM comes out with that before anyone else has anything close to it, it will sell unbelievably and totally change the car market. I doubt the chinese are anywhere close to duplicating that technology.

A few of those Changfen cars were remakes of other cars, like that truck has the same rear 2/3's of the Honda Ridgeline. I forgot the others, I knew it when I saw them at the show.

the sticker is an attempt to keep the general public from grabbing the handle and trying to wrench the door open. the cars that are open get quite a bit of wear and tear over 10 days of manhandling. the car is locked because the interior is probably not finalized yet, and they don't want to be held to certain design elements, etc.

[btw. aiw, it's "maserati" (no z) and "hyundai" (add a y).]
