The Walter E. Washington Convention Center opened its doors to the annual Washington Auto Show today.

This year’s show features 700 new vehicles from over 42 domestic and import automakers including the newest sports cars, green cars and high-tech rides. NBC Washington’s got a nice slide show preview up of the spread, just in case you want to check out the goods before dropping a few dollars for the real thing.

The show runs every day through Sunday and is open during the following hours:

Wed. January 27, 2010 – 10:00 am – 9:00 pm
Thur. January 28, 2010 – 10:00 am – 9:00 pm
Fri. January 29, 2010 – 10:00 am - 10:00 pm
Sat. January 30, 2010 – 10:00 am – 10:00 pm
Sun. January 31, 2010 – 10:00 am – 7:00 pm

Tickets are still available.

  1. Showgoers would be wise to stop by the Chevrolet display because the Chevrolet Volt electric vehicle with extended-range capability is on display this week. We just announced on Monday that Washington D.C. will join California and Michigan as lead retail markets when the Volt launches later this year.

    We’ll also be showcasing our upcoming family of fuel-efficient small cars – including the Spark five-door mini car, Aveo RS show car and Cruze compact sedan. Revealed earlier this month in Detroit, the Aveo RS show car features a European-inspired hot hatch design that strongly hints at the upcoming Aveo production car.

    Enjoy the show everyone.

  2. I’d actively avoid the GM booth at the Auto Show, personally, especially after their shabby treatment of several area bloggers who had their test drives of the Volt summarily rearranged without much advanced notice.
