In a fitting salute to the new millennium, the Greater Los Angeles Auto Show was held Jan 8-16 at the Los Angeles Coliseum.  

The show featured the "THE ELECTRIC VEHICLE SPECTRUM", a dramatic 5,100 square foot display of transportation for the 21st century. 

This special exhibit was sponsored by the South Coast Air Quality Management District (SCAQMD) and co-sponsored by the California Air Resources Board (CARB), and included 20 different battery powered vehicles.

These zero emission vehicles help provide a solution to the challenge of air and noise pollution. Representing the future now, each of the vehicles are on the market and currently available for use. In keeping with the global smog challenge, the showcase included vehicles from Japan, Netherlands, Canada, and America.

In addition to electric passenger cars, the EV Spectrum display included a wide array of "no tailpipe" EVs. It included sport utility vehicles, neighbor electric vehicles (NEVs), airport shuttle van, pickup truck, postal delivery van, airport tram, transit bus, tractor, ATV commercial lift, utility and flatbed trucks, commercial lawnmower, bicycles, scooters, motorbikes and motorcycles. 

Exhibiting companies included APS, Electrifying Times, Columbia Car Par, Daimler-Chrysler, Denali Bike, Electric Tractor, Ford Motor Co., Electric Transportation Company, EV global Motors, Global Electric Motorcars, Gorilla Vehicles, Legend EV, Nissan, Quality Motors, Toyota Industrial and ZAP. 

The EV Spectrum managed by Synergy EV, also featured a briefing center which presented talks for both the public and industry. 

Experts on electric vehicle performance and technology from the AQMD, CARB, Synergy EV and others were on the floor to provide in-depth information.

The EV Spectrum exhibit was Synergy EV Inc's eight such auto show display. Synergy EV is a Silicon Valley California based company dedicated to working with the utilities to expand the use of all types of electric transportation technology. The goal of the exhibits was to educate a million fleet managers and "vehicle enthusiastic" members of the public about the realities of this "no tailpipe" production orientated technology.
