EVs and hybrids will be the stars of the show.
Many automakers will host various events around town.
Car companies like Hyundai, Toyota, and Porsche will all have new vehicles on display at the LA Convention Center. Although the current auto show format is slowly but surely dying, the Los Angeles event remains one the most complete and pertinent in North America.
Los Angeles is also an incredibly important market for all automakers, both legacy and start-ups. The proof is found in the fact that Porsche, which has effectively backed out of nearly all other auto shows, will be on hand to show off its latest creation.
The following is a breakdown of some of the reveals that are expected to take place later this week:
Genesis Electrified GV70: This is the all-electric version of the popular compact SUV. The premium automaker will also reveal a new Global Concept.
Hyundai will introduce the final production version of the all-new Ioniq 6. The sleek-looking sedan is expected to launch early in 2023.
Kia is expected to launch an updated 2024 Seltos SUV. A hybrid version is a possibility as is a plug-in hybrid.
Lucid, a native Californian start-up automaker will introduce a lower-priced version of its highly-acclaimed Air luxury sedan.
Porsche will present their long-rumoured 911 Dakar. The German sports car maker has been teasing the car for a while already.
Subaru will launch a new generation of its compact Impreza hatchback. Based on the limited information, the sedan is not expected to return.
Toyota is rumoured to introduce the next generation of the Prius. The hybrid’s 5th generation should introduce a more efficient and possibly powerful hybrid system.
VinFast will be on hand with four of its electric SUVs. The VF 8 and VF 9 will be joined by the new VF 6 and VF 7.
