Automakers Unveil Significant World and North American Debuts at the Los Angeles Auto


LOS ANGELES, Sept. 29 /PRNewswire-AsiaNet/ --

    A cautiously optimistic automotive industry will kick off the North

American auto show season by launching all-new vehicles and featuring

ground-breaking technology at the Los Angeles Auto Show's press days Dec.

2-3. The show will open to the public Dec. 4-13.


    Approximately 30 vehicles will make their World and North American debuts

in Los Angeles. World debuts will be unveiled from manufacturers including

Audi, Ford, General Motors, Honda, Hyundai, Mazda, Porsche, Toyota and others

yet to be announced. As the first major North American auto show of the

season, it will deliver a preview of how the recent changes in the industry,

the environment and the economy will ultimately affect what consumers drive.

    "This is a critical time for the auto industry and we are already seeing

the manufacturers respond to the new challenges with some truly innovative

products," said Andy Fuzesi, general manager, LA Auto Show. "It's exciting

that the LA Auto Show will play host to manufacturers showcasing the future

of the automobile."

    This year's show will feature advances in green technology in nearly

every car category from compact to luxury vehicles. Electric vehicles are a

significant trend at this year's show with several manufacturers featuring

dramatic, all-electric or plug-in concepts. Virtually every manufacturer will

showcase its upcoming, fuel-efficient vehicle lineup including the latest

advances in clean diesel, hybrid and other alternative fueled vehicles. There

will also be new small-car offerings with more fuel-efficient yet powerful

traditional gas engines.

    As a traditional feature of the show, sports cars and luxury vehicles

will continue to have a strong presence in Los Angeles with debuts from Audi,

Jaguar, Lexus, Mercedes-Benz, Porsche, Rolls Royce and others.

    It is expected that nearly all major manufacturers will be communicating

positive company momentum and unveiling their road maps for growth in North

America. Many automakers, including Ford, Chrysler and General Motors, will

have a stronger presence in Los Angeles than the previous year. Both Ford and

General Motors will be unveiling world debuts and GM President and CEO Fritz

Henderson will be delivering a special keynote presentation on opening press

day. Ford is increasing its exhibit presence and says auto shows are gaining

in importance due to the increase in new product introductions.

    The LA Auto Show has continued to grow in stature as an international

auto show since it changed its dates to the fall three years ago. Since then,

media attendance has more than tripled and the show has seen an increase in

the significance of vehicle debuts unveiled. Also, with Los Angeles as the

nation's largest car market, the show continues to be a leading harbinger of

the nation's consumer trends.
