It’s hard to believe but it’s that time of year again: new car show season! As one of the largest and most established US automotive shows the LA Auto Show will kick off the 2013 season. And they are doing it big.
More than 50 new cars, from both international and American manufactures, will be debuted during the press days, November 20th-21st. The worldwide new car lineup includes: 7-8 new BMWs; the new Porsche Macan; and a new MINI, Chevrolet, Honda, Mercedes Benz, Subaru, and Volkswagen. This invite-only time allows the media as well as brand executives and celebrities the opportunity to look over the new models and get a feel for what will be available in 2014 and what they would like to incorporate for the 2015 models.
Not to be left out, the show will be open to the public from November 22nd- December 1st so perspective buys can get a sneak peak at what will be available for sale in the coming months, and there is a lot to look forward to.
Automobiles have come a long way since their inception over a hundred years ago. They are no longer used to simply get from one place to another. GPS, internet radio, and a variety of safety features have taken car technology to whole new levels. In response to that change the LA Auto Show has partnered with the Connected Car Expo (CCE) which specializes in innovative car technology. This will be the first merger of auto show and expo but it should prove to be a good pairing as cars continue to increase in technology and become more efficient.
With so many new debuts and the attendance of many top executives and celebrities, this show is poised to set the tone for 2014 in the US and abroad. Cars of all types—electric and hybrid, SUV and crossover, luxury and economy—will surely give everyone in attendance something to love.
