AFS Trinity Power Corporation announced that it has pulled its 150 MPG XH 150 electric hybrid SUV from the LA Auto Show. The company says that it will display its vehicle at an alternate location during the show. According to AFS, the decision to leave the show was due to the show trying to muzzle it on claims of the 150 MPG economy offered by its XH150 prototype.

The vehicle was displayed at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit using graphics touting its claimed 150 MPG capabilities. According to AFS, the LA Auto Show refused to allow it to use the same graphics for advertising and only offered basement exhibition space for the car. The LA Auto Show says that manufacturers are only allowed to claim EPA verified fuel economy numbers.

"The suppression by the automakers of information about technologies such as this raises serious questions about the judgment, vision, intentions and capabilities of the leadership of these companies," said Edward W. Furia, Chairman and CEO of AFS Trinity. "Such conduct by the automakers, who are currently seeking tens of billions of taxpayer dollars, ostensibly to develop fuel efficient vehicle technologies, is evidence they are reluctant to embrace solutions they didn't invent."
