These are the dates the show will be running. Friday, November 18th through Sunday, November 27th—exactly 10 days. The show opens at 9:00am and closes at 7:00pm every day.
22. The Price of Tickets
$22 is the adult ticket price for entry into the show. However, there’s more than one way to get into the show. Senior citizens (65+) can get in for $12. It’s $6 for children (6-12). And then on the other end of the spectrum, $100 will get you a VIP guided tour. There’s also special rates for veterans and first responders. (More ticket information).
3 World Debuts
Three is the number of world debuts at the show. The biggest one is an all-new Toyota Prius—and it’s shockingly attractive. You won’t recognize it as a Prius. The second is the all-new Impreza, and it’ll be at the Subaru exhibit and looking very much like a Subaru. The third is from Charge Cars. The show organizers say it’s the first-ever public showing of the ’67—an electric car with styling inspired by the 1967 Ford Mustang Fastback, but goes into technological tangents that no ’67 Mustang ever did previously.
5 North American Debuts
The number of confirmed North American debuts at the show. You can see them at the Hyundai, Fiat, Kia, Genesis and VinFast exhibits.
8, as in Cylinders
Six debuts at the LA Auto Show are a far cry from the golden years when debuts numbered in the double digits. But as Chuck Dapoz says in “The LA Auto Show has Changed. You Won’t Notice,” there’s more to an auto show than debuts. And at this show, you’ll likely be seeing a lot more hardware for the first time that aren’t debuts—like the all new, seventh generation Mustang, and the new Corvette Z06. While you’re at the show, don’t forget the new Nissan Z, the Cadillac Lyriq, and the new electrics at the Hyundai, Genesis and Kia exhibits. There will be lots to see.
30+ Automotive Manufacturers
The organizers promise over 30 of the top automotive manufacturers in world will be at the show: Alfa Romeo, Aston Martin (Galpin), Charge Cars, Chevrolet, Chrysler, Dodge, Electra Meccanica, Fiat, Ford, Genesis, GMC, Honda, Hummer, Hyperion, Hyundai, Indi EV, Jeep, Kia, Lexus, Lincoln, Mazda, Nissan, Polestar – Los Angeles, Ram, Subaru, Toyota, VinFast, Volkswagen, and Volvo (Galpin).
50+ Aftermarket Exhibitors
The number of aftermarket exhibitors in “The Garage”, located in Kentia Hall, below the South Hall of the LA Convention Center. You can read about it in LA Car’s story by Doug Stokes.
60+ Ride and Drives
The show organizers promise more ride and drive opportunities than ever in its history. “Over 60,” according to them. For more on this, see LA Car’s “Driving the LA Auto Show.”
20th of November – The Teslas Are Coming!
As it turns out, the LA Auto Show is not the only show in town at this time. On Sunday, November 20th, the largest ever collection of past, present and future Teslas will be exhibited at the Petersen Automotive Museum’s Mullin Family Grand Salon and Phillip Sarofim Porte Cochere on the museum’s first floor. Tesla has never had a major exhibit at an auto show. This is as good as it gets. Look for LA Car’s report on the exhibit.
The Los Angeles Auto Show dates back to 1907, making this year its 115th anniversary. It’s come a long way since the humble beginnings of the 99-car show at Morley’s Skating Rink.
1201 South Figueroa Street in Los Angeles
The address you’ll want to dial in on your GPS to take you to the Los Angeles Convention Center, site of the LA Auto Show. See you at the show!
