Ford confirmed October 7 that it has quardrupled its space at CES this year, with CEO Alan Mulally returning to give a keynote address for the third straight year on January 7 - last year Mulally's introduction of the new MyFord Touch operating system won him a "Best of CES" award from CNET magazine.
Audi Chairman Rupert Stadler is also slated to speak at the show on January 6.
Other automotive highlights at the show are expected to include energy storage devices and charging solutions, safe driving technology such as collision avoidance, lane drift assistance and parking assistance and location-based services showcasing the latest navigational devices.
