BUFFALO, NY (WKBW-TV) — The Auto Show presents the 'Energy Zone' which promises to be an electrifying highlight of this year's event. Besides lots of information about the future of electric cars there is plenty of opportunity to get up close and personal with a number of electric vehicles.

Steve Hotz of LED Energy Solutions is on hand in the Energy Zone and says "We are all going to be moving into the new frontier of electric cars." adding "It may have seemed outlandish in the past but with technologies that are available it's in reach."

The New York Power Authority is here with a display that explains charging stations. Spokeswoman Rebecca Hughes says "our ultimate goal is to make the easy choice for consumers. We are starting to dispel some of the range anxiety and build consumer confidence." The NY Power Authority plans to have two-hundred charging stations in place through out the state by the end of 2020.

The Auto Show runs through February 9th at the Buffalo Convention Center. You can get more info at their website.
