New York Int'l Auto Show kicks off

Posted: Updated:
NEW YORK -

This year's New York International Auto Show kicked off Friday at the Jacob Javits Convention Center in Manhattan.

Aside from high-tech, expensive prototypes, the show also features more utilitarian vehicles, like Ford's newest police cruiser.

Ford says its new police responder is the first ever hybrid-powered pursuit vehicle.

Ford spokesman Stephen Tyler says it can save about $3,900 over a conventional police car used for two eight-hour shifts a day.

It includes customizations for police officers, like seats that allow room for the bulky duty belts and knife-proof seat backs in case a suspect smuggles in a weapon.

"The interior is purpose built for police use," Tyler says.
