DETROIT (AP) — The North American International Auto Show is opening to the public following a week of previews for the press, industry officials and others.

The latest cars and trucks are displayed at Cobo Center in Detroit along with concept cars that offer a glimpse at what the future of driving might look like.

Public days start Saturday. The show ends Jan. 24.

With stricter fuel economy standards looming, automakers continue to develop alternatives to gas-powered cars. Audi and Lexus both showed zero-emission hydrogen fuel cell prototypes. Volkswagen showed a plug-in hybrid Tiguan SUV concept.

Fiat Chrysler's plug-in hybrid version of the Pacifica is a first for the minivan segment. Chevrolet showed the all-electric Bolt. And Ford showed updated versions of its Fusion hybrid and plug-in hybrid cars.
