It’s electric inside Seattle’s auto show: Ford F-150 Lightning, BMW iX and driving Bill Gates’ Porsche

You know progress is being made in the move toward increased production and adoption of electric vehicles when you visit an auto show and have to ask which cars and trucks are gas powered.
The Seattle International Auto Show has returned to the Lumen Field Event Center with more than 350 new cars, trucks, SUVs and crossovers. A big part of the mix is the electrification of so much of it — and the fact that the stuff just looks good and is ready to perform at a level that is sure to turn heads.
“The overall theme that’s happening at this show is that the mainstream manufacturers have started to introduce seriously competitive electric vehicles,” said Tom Voelk, spokesperson for the show, a New York Times auto journalist and host of the YouTube channel Driven.
