Our Recap Of The 2024 New York Int'l Auto Show

Hyundai, Polestar, and Porsche all had North American debuts.

The New York International Auto Show is one of the biggest auto shows in North America, and so it's no surprise that automakers use it to debut North American vehicles and show off their latest concepts. Here's a recap of the top news-making EVs we found on the show floor in New York.


Genesis Neolun Concept

Genesis had two big headlines to make; the first was the debut of their Neolun concept, a flagship SUV with exceptionally minimalist styling, carriage-style doors, and a lounge-y interior drenched in cashmere and silk. Most interestingly, Genesis has unveiled a heating system called Ondol, which is a low-power film that radiates heat from under the floor, giving the interior a luxurious lounge feel while also heating the cabin more efficiently than a standard heater. For now, it seems like the Neolun is just a design statement and technology showcase. There were no details around production plans or performance specifications.

Genesis Magma

Genesis also announced Magma, their new performance division, and displayed their wild X Gran Berlinetta Concept alongside their GV60 in Magma's signature orange color. Details are currently thin on these Magma variants, but we'll keep you posted as we learn more.


Hyundai Ioniq 5 N

Hyundai showed off the Ioniq 5 N, announcing the car has won the World Performance Car of the Year Award while also giving demo rides around a hilariously short indoor test track.

Hyundai also unveiled a refreshed Tucson, which will come in a Plug-In Hybrid version. The new PHEV will see a 6hp increase from the outgoing model, and introduce driver-adjustable regenerative braking.


Polestar 4

Polestar debuted the Polestar 4 in North America, and while the car had previously been revealed, we now learned the stateside price: $54,900. That's almost $20k cheaper than the Polestar 3, and a very compelling price point for this car, which looks and feels premium and offers strong EV specs (up to 300 miles of range, 200 kw charge speed, 3.7s. 0-60).


Porsche Taycan Turbo GT

Porsche brought their new "King of the Taycans" the Turbo GT in the gorgeous Shade Green Metallic. They also debuted the Macan EV for the first time in North America.

GMC brought their Sierra EV pickup, though they hid it in a far corner of the room. The truck was showing off its large pass-through aperture that connects the bed to the passenger cabin for a lot of extra utility.

Chevy gave us a couple of Silverado EVs, the Blazer EV (including one for law enforcement), and a stealthy-looking Equinox EV RS.

Kia didn't unveil any new EV products, but they did announce the EV9 had won World Car of the Year Award, and World Electric Vehicle.

It wasn't just vehicles on display, EVolve NY was also onsite highlighting their efforts to build 800 fast charging stations across New York state by 2025. These locations include major highways (within minutes of exits), in New York's largest cities, and in partnership with the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey will include a new 10-plug location at John F. Kennedy International Airport. If you're a New York resident or just passing through, you can learn more about specific locations here.
