New vehicle debuts

CES saw the debut of the long-awaited, long-range version of Nissan's Leaf EV. The 2019 Leaf E+ tweaks the world's best-selling electric car formula with a larger battery pack that bumps its range to about 226 miles, a significant boost over the current model.

Meanwhile, Mercedes-Benz debuted its coupe-y, swoopy 2020 CLA-Class in Las Vegas this week. The compact sedan is packed with style, but bursting at the seams with tech, including Benz's MBUX connected infotainment system and a healthy dose of driver aid technologies. (A bit of a power bump over the A-Class doesn't hurt, either.)

IndyCar revving up tons of momentum for 2019 season

IndyCar revving up tons of momentum for 2019 season IndyCar heads into 2019 with everything going in the right direction. The series has a new long-term sponsor in Japanese communications giant NTT. Firestone has extended its tire supplier deal for five more years. A new broadcast deal with NBC is set to launch. The driver pool keeps building talent and the series is adding a long-awaited stop in Texas and bringing back an old one in California. Veteran driver Tony Kanaan says the momentum building for the year is the best he has seen ''by a long shot.'' The 17-race IndyCar season opens on March 10 in St.

Electric car startup Byton only debuted part of the production version of its M-Byte electric SUV, but it's arguably the most exciting and contentious part. The M-Byte production cockpit features a massive 48-inch screen -- that's as large as seven iPads -- and a touchscreen in the center of the steering wheel. We expect to see the rest of the car later this year.

The concepts of tomorrow

Forward-looking CES had no shortage of interesting concept cars, a few of which we've already seen before. Mercedes-Benz's Vision Urbanetic concept made its North American debut on the Las Vegas Strip. Roadshow was there to take it for a spin -- or rather, be taken for a spin in this autonomous car.

Uber talked quite a bit about its plans for flying taxis at its Elevate conference series in 2018. CES 2019 gave many their first in-person look at what to expect from that with the Bell Nexus flying taxi concept. It looks a bit like a big ol' drone with seating for four passengers and a pilot and it could be taking to the air for test flights in early 2020.

NASCAR to launch a multi-market ad campaign in addition to developing a media partnership with Barstool Sports

NASCAR to launch a multi-market ad campaign in addition to developing a media partnership with Barstool Sports It’s no secret that NASCAR is at a crossroads. Fewer fans have been watching the sport and those who have remained are getting older. Changes have been made but most of them haven’t really resulted in a consistent uptick in ratings. While most moves have taken place on the track, NASCAR has made moves off Read more The post NASCAR to launch a multi-market ad campaign in addition to developing a media partnership with Barstool Sports appeared first on Awful Announcing.

CES is the world's gathering place for all those who thrive on the business of consumer technologies. It has served as the proving ground for innovators and Owned and produced by the Consumer Technology Association (CTA), it attracts the world's business leaders and pioneering thinkers.

I've saved the "Where we're going, we don't need roads" reference for perhaps the weirdest concept at the show. Hyundai's Elevate concept is an electric emergency response vehicle with legs between its body and wheels. Able to transition between driving and walking modes, it's a crazy future ambulance that can scramble over rocky terrain like some kind of lizard car.

Reimagining the cockpit

Ten years ago, CES' automotive hall was all about speakers and stereos, but 2019 sees automakers and media providers completely reimagining what entertainment in car looks like.

Audi collaborated with Disney on a project called Holoride, a VR experience for passengers that brings games and movies along for the ride. Meanwhile, Intel and WB's AR cockpit is an augmented reality autonomous car experience that takes riders on a virtual tour of Batman's Gotham City.

Speaking of augmented reality, suppliers like WayRay and Valeo are busy working on ways to bring AR tech to the cars of today. Valeo's XtraVue invisible towing system uses cameras to make a towed trailer appear transparent when viewed through an in-car display. Meanwhile, WayRay's massive head-up display tech enables AR data to be overlaid on to a vehicle's windshield.

Williams reveals images of 2019 F1 car

Williams reveals images of 2019 F1 car The Williams Formula 1 team has revealed the first images of its 2019 car ahead of its physical reveal in testing next week. Williams unveiled its new livery earlier this week at a launch event for its new ROKiT title sponsorship, but used a show car with 2019-spec front wing. It has now published a video render of its 2019 car before it appears in public next Monday ahead of testing at Barcelona. Williams has cancelled a planned shakedown of the FW42 because it is running behind schedule.

A different side of autonomous tech

The lion's share of CES 2019's car-related news fell to autonomous and semiautonomous technologies that aim to make tomorrow's vehicles safer. The flashiest was BMW's self-riding motorbike, which was able to steer itself around the convention center's lot without falling over.

We also saw how autonomy will affect the trucking and logistics industries. Freightliner showed off a Level 2 semiautonomous trailer cab that brings many of the modern advanced driver aid features from passenger cars to semi trucks.

At a smaller scale, startup Udelv debuted its second-generation autonomous delivery truck. The Udelv Newton has a longer range and is more flexible than the Udelv's previous truck and will be hitting the road this year as part of pilot delivery programs with Walmart in Arizona and XL Parts in Texas.

And that's just scratching the surface. There's so much more to discover in our coverage of CES 2019 and more to come as we wrap up our coverage of the big show and roll straight into the Detroit Auto Show next week.
