Portland International Auto Show to feature latest in electric car technology

The people of Portland aren’t into cars, the story goes – they’ll take their bikes and buses and trains over gas-guzzling metal death traps any day. We’ll soon have a new car-less commuting bridge, for crying out loud!

But even if you ignore the statistics (more than 71 percent of regional commuters travel solo by car), there are glaring examples of Portland’s love of cars. Like, for example, the massive Portland International Auto Show.

While the vast majority of the cars at the show will be of the gas-guzzling variety, there is an increasing presence of eco-friendly vehicles. Between the “Clean Tech Center” and indoor test drives of the BMW i3 electric car, there is a small but growing interest in fuel alternatives.
