Los Angeles, California – The Los Angeles Auto Show expects nearly 60 world and North American vehicle debuts to be unveiled in front of media, analysts, automotive industry executives, and lifestyle influencers from around the globe during its press and trade days, Nov. 18-20, 2014.

World vehicle debuts from Acura, Audi, BMW, Chrysler, General Motors, Hyundai, Lexus, Mazda, Mercedes-Benz, Scion, Toyota, Volvo, and Volkswagen confirmed for Nov. 19-20, 2014. Several other manufacturers have global debut plans but have yet to officially announce publicly. Vehicle unveilings will be accompanied by important business announcements about alternative fuel strategies, technology partnerships and new product strategies.

This year's debuts will deliver production and concept vehicles representing the ever-growing luxury, performance, low and zero emission categories. The debuts range from flagship SUVs and ultra luxury sedans to new compact entries and zero-emission production and prototype debuts.

For the second consecutive year, the LA Auto Show's Connected Car Expo will take place in conjunction with press and trade days. The three-day expo and one-day conference (Tuesday, Nov. 18) will focus on announcing and exhibiting the latest trends and advancements in mobility and connectivity. Continental, Garmin, Ford, and Volvo are among several newcomers on the expo floor, joining OnStar, Hertz NeverLost, and Verizon Telematics. Also new to CCE this year is the Connected City Summit on Nov. 20, a gathering of magistrates and luminaries to address how technology is transforming everything within a modern city – ranging from transportation to infrastructure to safety.

"The LA Auto Show sets the stage for the coming auto show season, where media and executives can gather to see the auto industry's newest offerings," says Lisa Kaz, president of the LA Auto Show. "Los Angeles is where 'what's next always comes first,' and we want this year's attendees to walk away with the feeling that they've experienced the future of transportation technology and performance."
