A month before the event, the Los Angeles Auto Show announced a strong showing for green vehicles.
The show’s organizers confirmed that LA will host 22 world debuts, making for a total of 56 vehicle debuts overall, to be unveiled in front of a global audience, November 19, 20 and 21, 2013.
Fuel and emission saving vehicles will have a special importance. More than two-dozen green vehicles will be featured, including models from Acura, BMW, Honda, Hyundai, Mercedes-Benz, Porsche and Volkswagen, ranging from alternative fuel models to brand new plug-ins.
Nov. 19 will focus specifically on technology announcements held in the Connected Car Expo area of the Los Angeles Convention Center.
In addition to the roster of global premieres, a variety of North American debuts will be unveiled in Los Angeles, including the 4 Series Hybrid, i8 and i3 from BMW.
U.S. auto show introductions will also include the Jaguar C-X17 and three vehicles from Volkswagen, including the e-Golf.
“As one of the world’s largest media hubs and car buying markets, Los Angeles offers a unique combination of press exposure and valuable consumer contact,” said LA Auto Show President, Lisa Kaz. “The LA Auto Show’s consistent growth and commitment to remaining on the forefront of automotive technology, green innovation and automotive design will certainly be noticed with 2013’s roster of major debuts.”
