The following video is from Wednesday's "Investor Beat" show, which features the day's top business and investing stories. In this segment, we look at more from the world's largest consumer electronics show.

Believe it or not, automakers made a big splash at last week's International CES in Las Vegas. Internet-connected vehicles and self-driving cars were making headlines – along with electric and hybrid technology. Nissan's LEAF and General Motors' (NYSE:GM) Chevy Volt have delivered more electric vehicles than anyone else, despite somewhat disappointing sales figures. Other major automakers are hoping to catch up.

Rex Moore was at the show, hoping to find out if investors should be electrified by these vehicles.
