After a brief hiatus due to the pandemic, the Los Angeles Auto Show is returned, and it is one of the most important automotive events now taking place. AutoMobility LA, the largest car-buying and electric-vehicle market in the United States will take place from November 19 to November 28, 2021. Each year, more than 50 vehicles make their debut at AutoMobility LA. At the event, the major automakers are expected to display their all-electric vehicles.
While not as big as it was before the pandemic, the L.A. event nevertheless had plenty of big debuts, both on the first official press day (November 17) and at off-site venues in the days leading up to and during the show. Because automakers have decided to save money by unveiling vehicles at their own events, such displays have lost their appeal. However, customers in urban areas who want to see what’s new in one spot still flock to the events.

Various electric vehicles, such as the Subaru Solterra compact SUV, the Kia EV9 SUV, the Nissan Ariya, and the Hyundai Seven, will be showcased during the event.
EdisonFuture (light-duty electric vehicles), Electra Meccanica (SOLO EV), Molnar (Molnar flying race car), Sondors (electric bikes), and others are among the first-time exhibitors at the LA Auto Show.
The winners of the inaugural zero-emission vehicle awards program—THE ZEVA powered by Electrify America, the nation’s largest open ultra-fast DC charging network—were also revealed at the Los Angeles Auto Show. The public decided the winners in two voting rounds that took place this fall.
Nine winners were selected from a pool of more than 90 qualifying zero-emission vehicles (ZEVs) that fulfill California standards and are available for sale or pre-order. Thousands of automotive enthusiasts, influencers, buyers, and fans from all around Los Angeles voted for this year’s winners, which included both established companies and intriguing start-ups.
