GM's Sequel will not appear at Houston auto show

Moving on from Washington Post columnists who criticize Houston, how about major automakers disrespecting Houston by declining to show some of their more innovative offerings at the Houston auto show?

John C. Roper reports that GM’s hydrogen-powered Sequel will appear at several “major” auto shows, but not Houston’s:

The 2005 concept car generating the most buzz in the auto industry, the hydrogen-powered Sequel from General Motors, is not appearing at the Houston Auto Show.

But in the not-too-distant future, it could have a dramatic effect on the energy capital of the world.

The car, which emits clean water vapor from its exhaust pipe, first appeared at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit in January and will make several stops at major shows in coming months.

GM won’t say where it will appear, but the Houston show didn’t make the cut.

I haven’t been to the Houston auto show in years, but past experience has been that companies rarely rolled out their most innovative offerings for it — which is why I haven’t been in years. That seems unlikely to change this time.

Thanks to Laurence Simon for alerting me to this news.
