There is hope that younger buyers could help push demand for green cars to the point where it would have a significant impact on fuel consumption.

“While they’re not necessarily going to gravitate to and make a buying decision because of ‘green,’ they have a preference towards new technologies,” Deloitte auto analyst Joe Vitale said.

“We think this generation may be the generation that creates a tipping point to an electrified world,” he added.

More than 50 new models were scheduled to be revealed yesterday and today as automakers vie for the attention of about 6,000 journalists from around the world.
