It was an interesting time at the Los Angeles Auto Show which opened to the public from November 20-29, 2015 at the Los Angeles Convention Center. An interesting feature of this year’s LAAS was the unveiling of finalists of the Green Car journal 2016 Green Car of the year. The 2016 models include the Audi A3 e-tron, Chevrolet Volt, Honda Civic, Hyundai Sonata, and Toyota Prius. Also at the LA show was Lyft Car co-founder and president John Zimmer who gave the keynote address at the LA Show’s connected car expo.
The global economy remains pretty unstable, how far we can be driven by oil prices and a possible escalation of a 3rd world war will determine how many of these cars will eventually be driven off the showrooms.
