Fuel Efficiency a Focus for Ford, Nissan at Auto Show
Focusing on the auto sector more broadly, Fiat & Chrysler CEO Sergio Marchionne is optimistic.
"It's a different world. It's like a throwback to the '90s," Marchionne told CNBC's Phil LeBeau in Detroit. "This is the kind of atmosphere we used to have at the Detroit Auto Show when things were going well."
The upbeat mood is in sharp contrast to Detroit shows after the 2008 global financial crisis. "We're all pushing. It's a great environment to be in," Marchionne says.
