Once, it was dominated by the global technology majors, but gradually, the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas has become a favourite event for the automakers to showcase new vehicles and futuristic concepts alongside exciting automotive technologies. With the increasing penetration of technology and digitalisation in the automotive space, carmakers are finding CES as an apt platform to display their products. Also, this comes at a time when modern cars are not just hardware but more about software and connected digital technologies.
The CES 2023 is expected to surprise us in a big way, with several manufacturers from around the world, including both legacy players and startups, bound to unveil their technology-laden electric vehicles, concept cars and advanced automotive systems at the event.
