The editor at Jalopnik already enjoyed a test drive of the BYD F6DM inside the Detroit Auto Show halls with the chairman of BYD, fun story to read.

New technologies like plug-in hybrids allow new players to enter the market. Since the whole green movement took over the car industry several new ventures sprung up to compete with the established car makers; e.g.: Tesla Motors or Fisker Motors.
