Auto shows might be in search of a new raison d’etre post-pandemic, with fewer new reveals, pared down exhibits, and overall lack of foot traffic apparent in shows across the country.
The Los Angeles Auto Show is a case in point — the 25 world debuts in 2018 have dwindled to only five in 2022. But LA is still the largest EV market in the U.S., and the show seems to be finding its niche as a showcase for the latest electrified models, particularly from Asian manufacturers.
This November’s big reveal in LA was the 2023 Toyota Prius, marking an important transformation of the hybrid model that started it all.
The Prius’s latest iteration is part of a trend in the design of sedans and crossovers, the model types at the center of the electric action from hybrids to plug-in hybrids and pure electrics. Check out the Prius and other new models pushing the design envelope in the gallery.
