Read a book while driving? Sure, Cadillac’s hands-free driving system “Super Cruise” is already in cars on our highways. Just look up often while using it, because the system is watching you, and it will warn you if you don’t. Your steering wheel will flash.

Where are we going? Just around our block. In our time neighborhood. Talk about cars today. Right, what’s going on? We’ve been to LA. Seen the show. Shot the video. See it below. (The video’s just 4:40 in length, not 9:12. New editing program error.)

Gems from the auto industry? Here’s a handful, the sustainable options from Hyundai, including hydrogen and plug-in hybrid versions of their Ioniq and Santa Fe models.

New choices in family cars abound — with the newest kids on the block Nissan Kicks and Hyundai Kona — targeting young buyers.

Tons of PHEV, right? Right, the plug-in hybrid electric vehicles abounded. And just over the holidays we test drove a fun one, the PHEV Mini Countryman that drives up to 28 miles in electric-only mode.

The Mini full electric version is also available, and the word from corporate is that all the BMW and Mini vehicles will be electric within seven years.

The Renault Mitsubishi Infiniti alliance will have 12 all electric vehicles within five years.

Volvo has committed to all electric vehicle power trains within a similar time frame.

What, we’re done with the LA show already? Yep, time flies in autonomous vehicles. It’ll be cold when you get out. We’ve arrived in Detroit for the North American International Auto Show.

Cool. So cool its freezing. There’s that. And there’s the fantastic cars to come.
