For the past few years, the big story in the auto industry has been about self-driving cars.
But at the 2019 LA auto show, electric vehicles are back in the driver's seat. On the Sunday before show week started, Ford rocked the house with the reveal of its much anticipated Mustang Mach-E electric crossover. Numerous other carmakers are expected to follow Ford's lead.
Here's a rundown of all the vehicles and concepts we're looking forward to seeing in LA:
James Bond's favorite brand, Aston Martin, is bringing its DBX SUV to Hollywood.
Audi is showcasing its RS 6 Avant, a dashing Euro-wagon.
Audi will also bring its e-tron Sportback to LA. It's an all-electric wagon! Audi is on a wagon jag!
The new BMW M2 CS “is set to cut an extremely powerful, highly exclusive figure and exude a fascinating sense of racing authenticity at its world premiere in Los Angeles,” the automaker said in a statement.
BMW is also pulling the cover off the more burly M8 Gran Coupe.
Auto show attendees should be thrilled to see the all-new, mid-engine Chevy Corvette, in both coupé and …
