There were numerous electric vehicles on display this year at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit, highlighting how many miles per gallon were achievable with an electric vehicle.

Mercedes-Benz highlighted its "Electric Drive" with an interactive display that shows how far one can go from place to place on battery power.

Beginning at your house, you can choose where to go next on the virtual map. This could be going on a picnic, to a gym, eating at a restaurant, or viewing a show.

As the car travels along the map to your destination, the display shows off how much battery power is still left in your electric vehicle. At some locations, you are able to recharge your batteries, like a supermarket or house.

After you travel to all the destinations on the map and back home, you should still have some battery power left in your vehicle.

Mercedes-Benz had a few other interactive displays that worth trying out, as they show off their vehicles' latest features.
