Further Reading This little electric car is the coolest thing at the NY Auto Show For those seeking something a little more current, there was the increasingly misnamed “concept lawn.” It’s supposed to be a place for automakers to show off their newest flights of fancy, and a few got into the spirit.

Genesis brought along the Mint, which wouldn’t have looked out of place on the 18th green , and Volkswagen showed off the ID. Buggy.
