LOS ANGELES — The Los Angeles Auto Show recently announced that more than 40 vehicles are anticipated to debut at the show during press days, held Nov. 28-29; general public dates are Nov. 30 through Dec. 9. At least 20 world debuts already have been confirmed by automakers.
The debut lineup this year also promises a compelling mix of the hottest trends and cutting-edge innovations driving today’s resurgent automotive industry, including world firsts from Chevrolet as well as European automakers such as BMW, Fiat and Volkswagen. Showgoers also will see global unveilings of new designs from Asian brands, including models from Acura, Hyundai, Kia, Nissan and Toyota.
Green and alternative fuel technologies, such as hybrids and all-electric vehicles, will be featured in several world debuts. There also will be an increasing number of high-mileage internal combustion vehicles, including clean diesel, on display. Additionally, several automakers will preview emerging technologies that are dramatically changing the modern driving experience and making it safer.
These technology-laden vehicles will share the spotlight with a lineup of luxury and performance models underscoring the LA region’s status as the largest market for these segments in the country. Of the 40 debuts slated, at least a dozen will come from these two categories, including unveilings from the likes of Acura, Bentley, BMW, Jaguar, Land Rover and Porsche.
“As the first major North American show of the season, LA sets the tone for 2013 and we expect that automakers will pull out all the stops to excite new-car buyers. In virtually every category from the greenest electric vehicle to high-horsepower performance models, the technological advancements we are seeing today eclipse all previous automotive eras,” said Andy Fuzesi, general manager, LA Auto Show.
