‘It All Starts Here’ at the NAIAS in Detroit

Between January 9th to the 25th, Detroit, Michigan welcomes the North American International Auto Show. With more than 25 OEMs exposing their newest models for the first time this year to the North American public, the show attracts several hundred thousand visitors.

“It All Starts Here”, says a big sign at the entrance of the COBO Center, home of the annual North American International Auto Show or most commonly known as the ‘Detroit Auto Show’. As the automotive industry continues to move forward, international car shows like the NAIAS, the IAA and Auto Shanghai continue to showcase the newest vehicle models as well as next generation products and technology. This year, NAIAS features 55 new vehicle introductions in North America; the majority are also worldwide debuts.

A few highlights from the show include the debut of the 2016 Camaro Coupe and Convertible which KIRCHHOFF Van-Rob in Lansing and North York currently produce parts for. The Camaro was the centerpiece of the Chevrolet booth, showcased on a turning platform with periodical light shows and a live presentation on the new features of the vehicle. Also on display was the ‘Vehicle of The Year’, the new 2016 Honda Civic which is completely redesigned from the inside out. Parts for the Civic are currently being produced at KIRCHHOFF Van-Rob plants in Aurora, Waverly and North York. Another great highlight was the new Acura NSX, which KIRCHHOFF Van-Rob Aurora will produce parts for in the near future. The NSX, considered a Supercar, was the crown jewel of the Acura booth at the NAIAS. Sharing the centre of the booth with Acura’s concept car, the NSX sat on a rotating platform lit up with LED lights underneath and multiple light beams highlighting its main features.

With hundreds of vehicles displayed, new models and technologies from over 25 OEMs - the 2016 North American International Auto Show continues to showcase the Automotive Industry at its best!
