postheadericon BYD Motors sneaks on to American market, could make US debut official by year’s end

We’ve heard rumblings of BYD coming to America before, but it seems it won’t be making a big deal of its Stateside entrée — at least not yet. According to the Los Angeles Times, China’s sixth-largest car maker is quietly making its presence known in the US, occupying the offices of Cars 911 — a dealership in Glendale, CA — and solidifying plans to open 10 American dealerships by the end of 2011. BYD is also in the process of building its US headquarters in downtown LA, and has been servicing a fleet of its F3DM hybrids, leased to the city’s housing authority, from the Cars 911 lot. BYD’s e6, which is slated as a Leaf competitor, is suspected to appear on the American market, alongside the F3DM, by year’s end. Considering the Leaf’s recent woes, this might be just the right time for BYD to strike.

postheadericon Audiovox shows off the industry’s first in-car Blu-ray player, the AVDBR1

We’ve been seeing demo units of in-car Blu-ray players at CES for years, but Audiovox is apparently finally ready to offer one for sale with its AVDBR1, seen here skulking about the halls of CES. Due in the spring with an MSRP of $349.99, it can be installed under the seat or in a storage compartment and is even BD-Live compatible with optional WiFi upgrade, available after a firmware update arrives later this year. Of course, even if you like video in the car — usually for the kids in the backseat — there’s plenty of other ways to get it including digital copies that can be activated on your phone, tablet or laptop, or DVDs included in the combo packs most major releases have. Add to this the fact that mobile screens are generally too small to make a big difference with HD and there’s plenty of reasons to be skeptical, but if you are on a long road trip with only the Blu-ray copy of Black Dynamite to keep you company, you’ll be glad you opted for the AVDBR1. Want more details? Check the press release after the break.

postheadericon Pioneer teams with Microvision on laser heads-up display, next-gen pico projector tech

Remember when Pioneer’s Android minions shot laser beams from their eyes and created an awesome prototype heads-up display? It turns out those lasers came from a Microbision PicoP projector, and that prototype is inching towards reality. You see, Pioneer’s partnered with Microvision to build a brand-new laser module for the commercial version — which is set to debut in 2012 — using a brand-new display engine and the actual green laser that’s been missing from the formula up until now. We can’t wait to burn driving directions into our collective retina, so we’ll be watching this one closely from now on. PR and video after the break.
