Los Angeles Auto Show will host a dozen world premieres
Opening in less than 90 days, the 2007 Los Angeles Auto Show will feature at least a dozen world premieres of production and/or concept vehicles from nine top automakers during the show’s media days Nov. 14 and 15. Audi, Chrysler, Ford, General Motors, Honda, Hyundai, Nissan, Toyota and Volkswagen are all confirmed to unveil one or more production and/or concept vehicles at this year’s show.
Last year, for the first time in more than 30 years, the LA Auto Show ran in the fall rather than early January, attracting more exhibitors and more worldwide and North American vehicle debuts. This year, with nine leading automakers already confirmed for world premieres, the emphasis on the LA Auto Show continues.
"Putting more distance between our show and Detroit has allowed manufacturers more time and resources to focus on both and gives the LA Auto Show its own place on the international auto show calendar," said Andy Fuzesi, general manager of the LA Auto Show.
While often recognized for its auto design innovation and a strong luxury market, Southern California has also become a key region for alternative fuel vehicles. This year’s show will continue its focus on the latest "green" auto technology and anticipates significant alternative fuel vehicle news as well as the announcement of the 2008 Green Car of the Year.
