With just a few months left until the 2011 Los Angeles Auto Show opens its doors, the organizers thought to give us a glimpse into the event to be held this November. According to the LA Auto Show, the floor of European and Asian carmakers will mean that the show will see no less than 30 world debuts.
Hyundai has already publically announced two world premieres including the Elantra Coupe, which expands its product lineup into the competitive compact coupe segment and the Azera which rounds out its near-luxury segment.
Numerous world premieres by luxury marques are also highly anticipated this year, including the Infiniti JX Crossover (2013) which is an all-new, seven-seat, mid-sized crossover that is more fuel-efficient than its current seven-seat option. Other global debuts are confirmed by Porsche, Mercedes-Benz and Lincoln.
Also included will be several North American vehicle debuts from Audi. Also, BMW will make the first stateside showing of its new BMW i concept vehicles. These two all-new vehicles – the BMW i3 and i8 – will feature electric and range-extender IC/electric propulsion and will be the first two vehicles from the company’s innovative new brand of sustainable vehicles.
Mazda will show its CX-5 compact crossover, which is an all-new SUV featuring the company’s SKYACTIV powertrain and chassis technologies, while Volvo will debut a ground-breaking concept vehicle.
“The message this year is very clear,” said Andy Fuzesi, general manager, LA Auto Show. “The automotive industry is gaining momentum and the LA Show is an important venue for manufacturers to launch the innovations that are leading the way.”
