by Green Jobs Ready on November 19, 2010

As part of the internationally renowned San Francisco International Auto Show, AAA of Northern California will present a special selection of fuel-efficient and alternative energy vehicles as part of an ongoing effort to highlight “green” shifts within the automotive industry.

According to the San Francisco International Auto Show’s official website, the AAA Greenlight Showcase will exhibit a hybrid automobile specially engineered by the firm to manage a fuel consumption rate of over 100 miles per gallon and which obtains its electrical energy from an innovative ChargePoint Networked Charging Station, manufactured by Coulomb Technologies. As well, a dissected Nissan Xtrail fuel cell vehicle will be on display for the general public to peruse, as will be a “sneak preview” of another fuel cell hybrid vehicle produced by Toyota, with a model similar to that of the popular Highlander sport utility vehicle, made available courtesy of the California Fuel Cell Partnership.

“The auto show exhibit is part of AAA’s long term commitment to help promote and build awareness of the variety of alternative fuel vehicles that are entering the consumer market,” states the auto show’s website.

The San Francisco International Auto Show, sponsored by the San Francisco Chronicle and, will see its 53rd annual production this Saturday, November 20 through Sunday, November 28, with times of 10 o’clock A.M. to 10 o’clock P.M. daily. The auto show will showcase some of the most prominent manufacturers of automobiles worldwide, including advanced previews of 2011 models of many cars, trucks, vans, and sport utility vehicles.

Besides AAA’s unique, environmentally-focused ‘Greenlight Showcase,’ many other exhibits of interest will be presented at the San Francisco International Auto Show. These include a variety of foreign sports cars, including the Aston Martin DBS, the Audi R8, the Bentley Continental, and classic American hot rods including the Chevrolet Camaro, Corvette Grand Sport, and the Ford Mustang GT Coupe and V6 Convertible. A race car exhibit sponsored by Infineon Raceway will also be included, as will a classic car collection assembled and maintained by the local Academy of Art University.
