Each car has ballistic door panels and window inserts on both front doors.



New York Governor Kathy Hochul made the announcement on Wednesday and encouraged New Yorkers to visit the indoor electric vehicle test track at the auto show.

She also announced that 10 fast chargers, able to power compatible EVs in less than 30 minutes, will be installed at LaGuardia Airport as part of NYPA's EVolve NY fast-charging network.

The network will soon have more than 100 high-speed charging ports across the state.
