Major automotive manufacturers recognize influence of California market, making 2023 LA Auto Show® the leading automotive event on this year’s calendar
LOS ANGELES (September 6, 2023) – The Los Angeles Auto Show® is thrilled to confirm that 2023 will be the strongest event since the automotive industry’s resurgence from the COVID pandemic. With more manufacturers occupying larger booth spaces and a broader selection of vehicles available for ride & drive experiences than ever before, show visitors can expect an elevated and dynamic day out when the show opens from November 17-26 at the Los Angeles Convention Center. And the media will have exclusive access to a full schedule of model debuts, press conferences and discussion panels on November 16 during AutoMobility LA®; the annual media and industry preview day.
“We were exhilarated to receive confirmation of attendance from most of the auto makers very early this year,” said LA Auto Show President, Terri Toennies. “This enthusiastic involvement reaffirms the pivotal role of the California market in the automotive world, as well as the manufacturers’ confidence in our ability to serve as a crucial touchpoint for connecting with both existing and prospective customers.”
Appealing to fans of American iron and international design alike, the show boasts a diverse range of brands eager to engage and connect with active vehicle shoppers, automotive enthusiasts and families throughout Southern California. Participating across the exhibits, activations, and ride & drive opportunities with the latest electric, hybrid, and gas-powered vehicles, this year’s lineup features a stellar roster of brands including: Acura, Aston Martin, Cadillac, Chevrolet, Chrysler, Dodge, Fiat, Ford, Genesis, Honda, Hyundai, Jaguar, Jeep, Kia, Land Rover, Lexus, Lincoln, Lucid, Mazda, Nissan, Polestar, Porsche, Ram, Subaru, Toyota, Volkswagen and Volvo.
As a result of this overwhelming industry support for the 2023 show, a number of driving tracks have been moved outside to the new Electric Avenue Test Track. While several indoor tracks and driving experiences will remain, this combination will allow an unprecedented number of visitors to partake in the ride & drive programs throughout the 10-day event.
The popularity of the show, coupled with the extensive lineup of participating brands and driving tracks solidifies California’s status as not only the largest US automotive market but also a global leader in electric vehicle adoption. As pioneers in the EV ownership process, Californians are helping to establish vehicle and charging technology, procedures and habits that will be adopted by drivers around the world as electric vehicles continue to permeate the global market.
During AutoMobility LA, media, industry, and show attendees will be able to select from an extraordinary variety of ride & drives and witness a number of global and national vehicle debuts, allowing guests to see the newest models. Notably, this extends beyond major manufacturers to include emerging brands and startups, such as Verge’s new two-wheeler and the all-electric, hassle-free Pebble RV among the many exciting reveals. Further details of the planned debuts will be shared in due course.
“We will announce more details about automaker debuts, individual activations and test drives soon, as well as some very special new exhibits,” added Toennies. “Time and again, LA Auto Show has consistently offered an unmatched opportunity to experience and compare a wide variety of brands in a single location, which is what active shoppers love most about our show.
