Consumers Invited to Select the Top Zero-Emission Vehicles
LOS ANGELES, Oct. 12, 2021 — The Los Angeles Auto Show® (LA Auto Show®), the leading automotive and lifestyle in-person event, today announced that public voting for its inaugural zero-emission awards—THE ZEVAS™—is now open. The signature awards program sets to spotlight more than 90 of the latest zero-emission vehicles (ZEVs) available for sale or pre-order that meet California’s standards.
Enthusiasts, influencers, and shoppers from Los Angeles and beyond are invited to vote for their favorite zero-emission vehicles across nine categories including, Compact, Coupe, Crossover (above/below $50k), Hatchback/Van/Wagon, Sedan (above/below $60k), Sport Utility Vehicle, and Truck. Voting will be open from Tuesday, Oct. 12 through Wednesday, Oct. 20; to vote, visit https://www.laautoshow.com/thezevas.
“Along with being an annual family tradition, our show is where consumers come to discover and decide on what their next vehicle will be,” said Lisa Kaz, CEO and owner of the LA Auto Show. “The only awards program of its kind, THE ZEVAS offer LA Auto Show’s influential attendees and fan base a chance to choose the vehicles they’re most excited for. This November, we look forward to announcing which zero-emission models fascinate our audience the most.”
THE ZEVAS were born out of growing consumer interest in electrification. Earlier this year, the LA Auto Show polled its attendees and an overwhelming majority expressed interest in learning about and experiencing zero-emission vehicles in person. As California and the U.S. drive towards a zero-emission future, the first auto show awards program of its kind measures consumer sentiment in the top car-buying and EV market in the nation (according to JD Power 2021). THE ZEVAS amplify the shoppers’ voice on what the top models are in each product category.
Many of the world’s top zero-emission vehicles will be on display at this November’s much-anticipated LA Auto Show. Voters can vote one time per category. THE ZEVAS Award finalists will be revealed at the beginning of November; the winners will be announced on Nov. 16. Nominees, finalists, and winners will be invited to an exclusive event celebrating THE ZEVAS on Nov. 17 at AutoMobility LA—LA Auto Show’s media and industry days.
