People heading to the North American International Auto Show will be able to see some ready- or nearly -ready-to-buy cars, as well as concepts.
Some of the concepts are electrics. Car companies say electrification is likely to significantly change how cars look both inside and outside.
Karim Habib is executive design director for Infiniti, which is showing a concept electric car, the QX Inspiration, at the show.
He says electric cars don't have big engines in the front. That's because batteries, typically underneath, power the car.
