EVs, Asian debuts, and celebs

Los Angeles — As automakers in the new media age have staged exclusive vehicle premieres and remote media launches, auto shows have taken a back seat. From New York to Detroit to Los Angeles, shows are focusing on their core, regional audiences and ramping up the non-automaker entertainment.

For this year’s Los Angeles Auto Show, that means a focus on electric cars and celebrities.

Set in America’s biggest auto market with California regulators mandating EV sales over the next decade (with federal mandates not far behind), the state’s biggest show is also the most significant on the U.S. automotive calendar. This year’s auto-palooza kicks off with Thursday’s Media Day before opening to the public Nov. 17-26. Attendees will have the chance to test over a dozen EVs, and the show will — for the first time — feature an EV on the stand of every automaker.

Comedian Kevin Hart will display nine of his custom mods at the 2023 Los Angeles Auto Show.

To plug consumers in to the growing list of EVs on offer, both April’s New York International Auto Show and Detroit’s event in September dedicated significant floor space to EV rides. LA’s Electric Avenue boasts the show circuit’s biggest EV track — and, unlike its peers, will allow consumers to get behind the wheel.
