TOP 5 cars at the upcoming Los Angeles Auto ShowNovember 10, 2019
Already on November 18, the next Los Angeles Auto Show will open its doors. It will last until December 1, 2019. Within its framework, about 1,000 different cars will be presented, including an exhibition of tuning copies.
More than 65 new cars will debut at the upcoming auto show in sunny California. AutoMobility LA International Auto Show will open on December 18th. During the first three days, press days will be held, and from November 22, the doors will open to all comers. In total, more than 1,000 cars will be presented at the stands.
This year, the presentation of new cars will affect all segments of the automotive market – from cheap to exclusive, from compact to incredibly powerful, and of course electric cars and drones will be presented. A car dealership will not do without several interesting concepts. Therefore, the editors of AutoTimesNews decided to compose their own rating from the most interesting presentations that have already been officially confirmed.
In the first place was the newest Volkswagen ID Space Vizzion electric station wagon. His debut was announced recently, and it has already become one of the most anticipated this year. This is the seventh model in the ID electric range, and is described by company representatives as the “crossover of tomorrow.” The car combines the “aerodynamic characteristics of the Gran Turismo with the capacity of an SUV,” which is quite unusual for a sports station wagon.
The electric station wagon is based on the new MEB modular platform, designed specifically for electric cars. There are no details of the power plant yet, but the cruising range should be at least 500 km. The production version may appear in 2021. Judging by the renders presented, the model will receive a massive front part and a swift image of the body with a hint of a compartment-like body.
The second place went to the long-awaited novelty of Volkswagen fans, and the eighth generation Golf hatchback, the most popular model in the European market. The model is already fully declassified in official photos, and was supposed to debut in the fall. But software problems forced the public presentation to be postponed.
The best-selling design is more evolutionary than revolutionary. Although the changes are very noticeable, the full recognition of the model remains. However, the interior design has been completely redesigned. The main elements are two displays: dashboards and multimedia systems. The engine range for the European market will be very extensive – from a three-cylinder 1.0-liter engine to a hybrid with a 2.0-liter engine, as well as a line of turbodiesels.
The three leaders closes the most interesting and long-awaited novelty from the company Ford. The first electric crossover of the brand, created in the style of the legendary Ford Mustang, will be presented at the Los Angeles Auto Show. While the appearance is kept in the strictest confidence, and only a few official teasers are available on the Web that do not disclose details.
So far, little is known about technical specifications. Cruising range should be about 600 km. The model will be the first in the history of the brand, created initially as an electric car. Sales of new items will begin next year, and his name will be Mach-E. Another feature will be free charging for two years.
We gave the fourth place in our rating to another interesting Karma SC2 concept from an American startup. The company is preparing to present the classic coupe in a modern way. The model will receive a large hood, a cabin shifted to the stern, a small trunk and doors in the style of “gull wings”. According to preliminary information, this sports coupe will be able to accelerate to “hundreds” in 3.5 seconds, and maybe faster.
As a power unit will be used twin-engine layout with a total capacity of up to 536 horsepower and 1,490 Nm of torque. A battery with a capacity of up to 28 kW * hours will be used as a power source. Cruising range on electricity will be only 130 km. But as a generator, a 1.5-liter three-cylinder engine from BMW will also be installed, which will significantly increase the power reserve.
And closes today’s rating is another electric startup with modular trucks Bollinger B1 and B2 with a price tag of $ 125,000. Cruising range will be about 500 km. The models have a classic rough design with numerous sharp corners. Moreover, the ascetic body design is fully consistent with the interior. Inside, you can see the complete lack of applications for luxury and comfort.
As the power unit will be used two electric motors with a total capacity of up to 614 horsepower and 668 Nm of torque. The battery capacity is 120 kW*hours. A feature of the model will be a modular body, which allows you to quickly remove all the windows, including the windshield, roof and doors. Also, the SUV has a special tunnel in the bottom that can accommodate oversized long cargo.
