The 2010 New York International Auto Show is in town started yesterday (and will be open till April 11) at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center. Unlike earlier years with flashy trends and concept cars, the economy and a new focus on fuel efficiency has led to a lot of small electrics and hybrids being featured.

The convention features nearly 1,000 cars from carmakers all around the world, including the troubled Japanese maker Toyota. Luxury brands like Porsche, BMW and Bentley are also present. Asian brands such as KIA and Hyundai make a strong showing. Nissan, for example, is introducing its electric car, the Leaf, priced at $32,780, which will likely be the first mass-market electric car.
