2020 LA Auto Show

The Los Angeles Auto Show was once a footnote in comparison to the North American Auto Show in Detroit. Since the demise of Detroit’s dominance, however, LA has garnered a great deal of significance. With Automobility, the show has pivoted to reflect the increasing importance of car tech; 2020, which runs Nov. 20 to 29 at the Los Angeles Convention Center, promises more of the same, with electric cars, show debuts, muscle cars and more. Digital Trends will be on the show floor bringing you all the latest news.
