TOKYO -- Asian companies highlighted their efforts to create cost-efficient and eco-friendly electric vehicle parts at CES, as the auto sector drew more notice at the world's biggest consumer electronics and technology expo this week.

"Our aim is to be one of the industry's leading suppliers of automotive components and solutions," said Brian Kwon, CEO of LG Electronics, at a Tuesday media event held by Canadian auto parts maker Magna International. Magna is setting up a joint venture with the South Korean company in July.
