Elaine and Bill Phillips already own seven cars, but they may be in the market for another. The Millersville couple came to the 2011 Motor Trend International Auto Show at the Baltimore Convention Center on Saturday to get a look at the Chevrolet Volt, the plug-in electric vehicle recently introduced by General Motors. "We're car people," said Elaine Phillips, adding that she and her husband visit the show every winter and liked what they saw this time. "It's more exciting this year because of all the hybrids and the electric car," she said.

They came to the Motor Trend International Auto Show in Baltimore with five cars on their list and a plan to narrow it down to three. "We're moving out of the minivan category because we're now 50-somethings with no kids to haul," said Mindy Doring, who was checking out the inside of a Hyundai Elantra with a sticker price of $16,445 and 40 miles per gallon on the highway. "It's now about comfort and the ability to throw down the seats and move a piece of furniture. " Doring and her husband, Mark, came from their home in Catonsville to shop and were part of the all-business category among attendees of the show, which runs through Sunday at the Baltimore Convention Center.

Howard County unveiled its first electric vehicle charging station last week, a free public plug-in site in Columbia, and officials are considering sites for more. The five-plug charging station, near the county's Thomas Dorset Building, adds Howard County to the growing list of areas across the state where charging stations are popping up. "We chose our location because that's where our building inspectors are. People will be able to use them," said County Executive Ken Ulman.

America's newest "green" cars made a stop Monday at the Johns Hopkins University, where students used to being examined turned the tables, crowding around to see, sit in and drive a Chevrolet Volt. The students also peppered the carmakers' engineers with questions about how the cars work — and how much they cost. General Motors brought a few of its sleek, quiet Volts — a cross between an electric car and a hybrid — to Hopkins' Homewood campus so the private university's students could check them out. The event was part of a national tour to generate buzz for the rollout of the first vehicles for sale to the public.

The U.S. auto industry needs a 21st-century makeover. Its future depends on automakers finding the money and resources to quickly deliver a new generation of fuel-efficient and alternative energy cars such as the planned Chevrolet Volt that can commute up to 40 miles a day without using gas and can net 100 miles per gallon on some hybrid trips. But facing a deep recession and credit freeze that have hobbled their industry, they can't raise capital fast enough to overhaul their operations.

General Motors Co. said Tuesday that its long-awaited Chevrolet Volt plug-in hybrid is expected to achieve fuel economy of 230 miles per gallon in city driving. That would give the Volt, which is expected to arrive in showrooms late next year, by far the highest fuel efficiency rating of any car rated by the Environmental Protection Agency. The current EPA mileage leader is the Toyota Prius hybrid, which is rated at 50 mpg in combined city-highway driving. The Volt is designed to run on electric power only for about 40 miles, after which a small gasoline engine kicks in to recharge the battery, giving it a range of more than 300 miles.

Glen Burnie's Dana Zadia Hardy certainly has a way with a buck. The 37-year-old project manager, whose penny-pinching ways earned her a spot recently on "Extreme Couponing," appeared Wednesday on another money show, "The Price Is Right. "  A longtime fan of the game show, Hardy and some blogging friends who work with her at MsCouponista.com, made a point to drive from Las Vegas to California earlier this year see if they could get on. Hardy did -- and she didn't have to wait ... at all. She was called to "come on down" right as the show opened, bouncing happily into the first contestant spot in front.

General Motors Corp. has chosen its White Marsh plant for a new effort to build electric motors, and on Tuesday it laid out plans for an expansion that will generate 180 much-needed jobs and provide a boost for the hard-hit manufacturing sector. The automaker, which would become the first car company to produce its own electric motors, announced that it plans to start making the devices in 2013. The company is investing $246 million, including state funds and federal stimulus money, to construct a new 40,000-square-foot facility next to the site where workers now build transmissions, including some that go into hybrid vehicles.

DETROIT -- With Chrysler LLC's announcement last week of an additional 12,000 job cuts, the number of jobs to be eliminated from U.S. and Canadian automakers and their former parts divisions in the second half of this decade has grown to 150,000 - and counting. With buyouts or early retirement offers expected at all three Detroit automakers after the new United Auto Workers union contracts that allow new hires to get less in pay or benefits, the number is sure to grow. And in the future, as the American automakers face competition from more and more rivals from low-cost countries, analysts say, more painful cuts will almost certainly follow.
