The buzz from the major automotive press has focused a lot on the new electric vehicles like the Chevy Volt. I took a spin (a very slow spin, anyway) in the new Volt. It's as quiet as a mouse and it has a cool animated status screen mounted on the dashboard. The status screen monitors the car's battery usage; it also lets you know when you need to recharge. Most of the major car makers, including Ford and Toyota, have electric vehicles, but only the Chevy Volt was available for a test ride.

At the Ford booth, besides all the cool Mustangs on display, there were some pretty awesome police cars at the entrance to the exhibit. I wonder if we'll see any of these vehicles on Chicago Code this season? Check out the video below for a look at the new cop cars and the other offerings from Ford Motor Company.
The 2011 Chicago Auto Show opens to the general public Friday and runs through February 20. Check the Auto Show Web site for additional information.
