2019 LA Auto Show

THERE ARE CERTAIN EVENTS THAT MARK THE PASSING OF THE SEASONS.

IF IT IS LATE FALL IN SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA, THEN IT IS TIME FOR THE CAR SHOW NOW REBRANDED AS AUTOMOBILITY LA.

ONCE A BASTION OF MUSCLE CARS, NOW THE OVERIDING THEME IS BATTERY ELECTRIC OR ALTERNATIVE FUEL VEHICLES AS THE INDUSTRY ADAPTS TO THE REALITY OF CLIMATE CHANGE.

MERCEDES BENZ, KEEPING A FOOT IN BOTH WORLDS DEBUTED THE AMG GLS 63 AND ITS COMPANION SUV, THE AMG GLE 63.

The combination of an advanced, combustion engine, matched with an integrated starter generator providing incredible performance when you need it.

But always in a most efficient way.

THE TRUCKING INDUSTRY IS ALSO GETTING IN ON THE SWITCH TO VOLTAGE FROM HORSEPOWER.

AN EXAMPLE IS XOS, A SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA STARTUP PLAYING IN THE HEAV- DUTY SEGMENT.

IN THE PROCESS THE COMPANY IS ALSO SETTING A NEW STANDARD..

So, we have a battery lab where we experiment design and make these batteries according to commercial applications.

So that is something that makes us other manufacturers, because other manufacturers take the batteries that are used in commercial cars and they put it in trucks.

WITH THESE CHANGES THERE IS ALSO A LOT OF DISCUSSION ABOUT NEW TECHNOLOGY AND HOW ARITIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE PLAYS INTO THE PROCESS.

IN THIS SEGMENT, SPECIALY MANUFACTURERS LIKE KARMA, ARE OFFERING THE LATEST IN THEIR BRAND OF PLUG IN HYBRID VEHICLES WITH A NOD TOWARD PERFORMANCE.

WHEN THE BMW GOT THIER TURN AT THE CENTER STAGE THE BRAND SHOWED OFF A FLEET OF VEHICLES, STARTING WITH THE MINI BRAND THAT INCLUDES AN AMPED UP VERSION OF THE JOHN COOPER MODEL ALONG WITH A FULLY ELECTRIC MODE.

(NAT SOT THE BMW SIDE OF THE FAMILY PREMIERED GRAND COUPE MODELS IN THE 8 SERIES, AND 2 SERIES COMPACT SEDAN.

THEY ALSO HAD NORTH AMERICAN UNVEILINGS OF PLUG HYBRID VEHICLES AS THE COMPANY CONTINUES TO EMBRACE ELECTRICFICATION.

KIA WHICH HAS BEEN SUCESSFUL WITH SUV’S AND CROSSOVERS IS ADDING SOMETHING EXTRA TO THE MIX WITH THE SELTOS A VEHICLE THAT WILL FIT IN BETWEEN THE SOUL AND THE SPORTAGE.

MIDSIZE VOLKSWAGEN DID NOT PRESENT A NEW PLATFORM INSTEAD CHOOSING TO TOUT THE CAPABILITY OF ITS SUV’S THE ATLAS AND THE TITAN.

THE AUTOMAKER INTENDS TO RACE A HEAVULY MODFIEID VERSION OF IT IN THE BAJA COMPETITION IN 2020.

While there were a lot of cars to see at the LA Auto show this year.

The real star was one that didn’t do a reveal.

In fact, there it is the Mach E from Mustang.

It may change the way we think of Fords and Mustangs in particular.

WITH THE FAMOUS GALLOPING PONY ON THE FRONT BADGE THIS IS THE FIRST FULLY ELECTRIC CROSSOVER FROM THE BLUE OVAL BRAND.

IT IS BUILT ON A MUSTANG CHASSIS WITH A BATTERY ELECTRIC DRIVE SYSTEM.

FORD WILL LIMIT PRODUCTION TO 50 THOUSAND UNITS THE FIRST YEAR AND BUYERS WILL HAVE SOME OPTIONS IN TERMS OF BATTERY RANGE.

The long range one gets up to 300 miles range, so we are really excited about that.

And we got a small one for those that really want to get in but don’t want all the range, all wheel drive and rear wheel drive and of course with the GT behind us we got two big motors.

NOW TRUE PONY CAR FANS MIGHT MISS THE RUMBLE OF A TRADITIONAL POWER PLANT BUT THE TIMES CONTINUE TO CHANGE AT FORD.

ONE OF THE LEADERS IN ADOPTING HYBRID TECHNOLOGY, TOYOTA IS EXPANDING THAT SIDE OF THEIR PORTFOLIO WITH THE RAV4 PRIME A PLUG IN HYBRID.

(VISUAL TRANSITION EFFECT) (NAT SOT) AND THE COMPANY APPEARS TO BE COMMITTED TO ALTERNATIVE FUEL SYSTEMS WITH THE UNVEILING OF THE 2021 MIRAI AS A PRODUCTION VEHICLE.

CURRENTLY SALES ARE LIMITED TO CALIFORNIA WHERE HYDROGEN FUEL STATIONS ARE AVAILABLE MAZDA IS TAKING ANOTHER SHOT AT THE SUBCOMPACT CROSSOVER SEGMENT WITH THE CX30.

IT FILLS A SPACE ONCE OCCUPIED BY THE CX3 AND NOW THE COMPANY HAS SOMETHING TO BRAG ABOUT IN THIS PLATFORM.

In Europe the CX30 recently received the highest score ever measured by Euro-NCAP among all car brands.

So, we are anxiously waiting for U.S testing and look forward to an outstanding result here in the United States as well.

GENESIS, WHICH IS THE LUXURY SIDE OF HYUNDAI DECIDED THE TAKE THE APPEARANCE OF ITS FLAGSHIP SEDAN THE G90 UPSCALE.

WITH REWORKED FRONT END, BODY ACCENTS AND LIGHTING PACKAGES THIS KOREAN BRAND IS OFFERING A SEDAN THAT COMPETES UNASHAMEDLY WITH THE REST OF THE WORLD.

SO, WHO HAS THE BEST OF EVERYTHING IN THIS CROWDED LANDSCAPE?

THE JUDGES OF THE NORTH AMERICAN CAR OF THE YEAR AWARDS HAS A PRETTY GOOD IDEA.

The top three car vehicles are, the Chevy corvette, the Hyundai Sonata and the Toyota Supra.

THE WINNER OF THAT HONOR WILL BE ANNOUNCED IN JUNE AT THE DETROIT AUTO SHOW.

SO, STAY TUNED.I’M GREG MORRISON
