The Los Angeles Auto Show, set for Nov. 17-19, will feature 30 world vehicle debuts, totaling 50 vehicle unveilings overall.
Almost every manufacturer will be making news, and while most have yet to announce details, a few manufacturers have begun to share their debut plans, according to show organizers. For instance, Infiniti will have a global reveal of its all-new QX30 crossover and Hyundai will host the world premiere of its all-new Elantra. Other debuts include Jaguar’s first luxury SUV, the F-PACE, and Kia’s next generation Sportage.
Other automakers officially confirming premieres include Alfa Romeo, BMW, Bentley, Fiat, Ford Motor Co., General Motors, Honda, Jaguar Land Rover, Mazda, Mercedes-Benz, MINI, Mitsubishi, Nissan, Porsche, Subaru and Volkswagen.
This year’s global and North American debuts will deliver production and concept vehicles representing the ever-growing performance, mid-size cross over, electric and high-technology categories. Debut categories range from luxury SUVs and flagship sedans to new compact sedans, according to LA Auto Show organizers.
For the third consecutive year, the LA Auto Show’s Connected Car Expo (CCE) will kick-off press and trade days on Nov. 17. This opening day will be dedicated to the convergence of technology and the automobile and will now occupy virtually the entire JW Marriott at the adjacent L.A. Live entertainment complex. The Connected Car Expo features over 30 exhibitors and sponsors, an entire day of presentations, news announcements and networking opportunities.
The rest of Press and Trade days will continue at the Los Angeles Convention Center and will focus on the vehicle debuts. More than 25,000 auto industry executives, including 4,500 media from around the world, are expected to attend.
Registration for the show is now open.
