Los Angeles, America’s motoring capital, has been hosting an annual automobile show for 115 years now. Running at the Los Angeles Convention Center from November 18th through 24, the Los Angeles Auto Show approaches the start of its run with an industry-leading number of manufacturers as exhibitors and notably, a record-setting number of test tracks at the show where attendees can sample conventional ICE-powered vehicles, hybrids and the coming generation of BEVs.
The organizers of the L.A. show says it gathers more manufacturers into one hall than any similar U.S. automotive salon. Off-roader types can experience obstacle-course drives presented by Camp Jeep, Ford Bronco Built Wild and Ram Truck Territory. Outside the convention center, street test drives will be available from Alfa Romeo, Dodge, Fiat, Ford, Jeep, Ram, Subaru, Toyota and Volkswagen. Additionally, closed-course indoor EV tracks – no emissions, remember – will be set up and operated by Ford, Hyundai and Nissan, while a separate outdoor EV track will offer rides from Kia, Porsche, VinFast and Volkswagen, with additional brands to be announced soon. The show site offers the opportunity to buy cashless event tickets.
