This year, SEMA’s many new features included teases of the Bronco, the latest Mustang model, innovations in battery-powered technology, and other new exciting products and innovations.
Electric drive technology continues to develop and become more robust, and SEMA didn’t shy away from acknowledging and featuring these changes. As automotive developers dive into the capabilities of battery technology, it’s certain that it will take awhile to see these types of inventive products retailed—but the possibilities are endless.
With new products like batteries with built-in capacity for jump-starting and Bluetooth enabled, being stranded waiting for a tow truck will be a thing of the past. For decking out your vehicle, audio manufacturers are turning to older vintage models for an even classier interface with more advanced technology.
While SEMA is just giving a taste of what’s to come, a slew of other featured products caught our eye at this year’s SEMA. Check out the accessories, electronics, hitch accessories, and more.
For especially pungent odors, like cigarette smells, mold, and pet odors, the Auto Shocker Odor Eliminator uses powerful chlorine dioxide to eliminate intense smells. If you’re not happy with this product, Auto Shocker guarantees your money back.
