DTROIT, Jan. 12 (Xinhua) -- The 2010 North America International Auto Show (NAIAS) at the U.S. auto city of Detroit is a lot smaller and greener as the industry adapts to a world reshaped by recession and environmental worries.

In the 39,000-square-foot showroom of the COBO Center at deep heart of Detroit, the global automotive community comes together to catch up on the latest with 60 new vehicle premieres.

Electric, hybrid and small cars have grabbed center stage at the auto show this week. Some global automotive companies unveiled new electric and hybrid cars at the auto show as car companies battle for green leadership and strive to meet stringent new fuel economy and emission requirements later this decade.

The Japanese company unveiled a concept car called the FT-CH, a vehicle about 500 millimeters shorter than the Prius that is to become a model on the road within three years.
German carmaker Volkswagen AG unveiled a concept car code-named the New Compact Coupe that combines a hybrid motor with a turbocharged, 1.4-liter engine. The company believed this hybrid model will be on the road this spring.
