RENO — This year’s Auto Show, set for Jan. 27 through 29 at the Reno-Sparks Convention Center, will spotlight fuel-efficient, electric and hybrid vehicles.

“For more than 30 years, the Auto Show has offered northern Nevada shoppers the best deals available with the convenience of shopping all 16 auto dealers under one roof,” said event producer Jim Minor. “By putting all the automotive groups into one arena it not only results in a more competitive market price-wise for the consumer, it also allows the buyer to make a more informed choice in less time. And with all of the new technological advances being made with electric and hybrid vehicles, that information is more important than ever.”
