    A Chevrolet Volt was driven onto the display platform yesterday at the Hawai'i Convention Center for this weekend's First Hawaiian International Auto Show.

The 2011 First Hawaiian International Auto Show opens tomorrow at noon at the Hawai’i Convention Center with a focus not just on future vehicle sales, but sales that will move the isles away from dependence upon fossil fuels and toward the goal of using 70 percent clean energy by the year 2030. A "Hawaii’s Cars & Energy" display will provide a visual representation as to how alternative energy sources feeding into the grid can power increasing numbers of electric vehicles in Hawaii garages and carports.

Electric and alternative-fuel vehicles will take center stage this year, though high-end and high-horsepower exotics by Bentley, Ferrari, Lamborghini, Lotus and Maserati will also have a special display area.
