NEW YORK—The New York International Automobile Show will launch this Saturday, April 7, at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center and will continue through April 15.

The show will feature several concept cars from various companies including Cadillac, Volkswagen, and Acura.

Concept cars are generally created to showcase technology and design but may not be put into mass production. For example, the Land Rover’s DC100 concept to be presented at the show will feature a Terrain-i system that creates an intelligent map of the topography in front of the car and displays it as a 3D visualization, according to a press release issued by PR Newswire.

The new Lincoln MKZ Concept will feature a transparent glass roof, essentially creating an open view from the windshield to the rear window, providing sunlight and a clear view from all directions.

The New York International Automobile Show debuted in 1900 and was the first automotive exhibition in North America.
