The 2022 Los Angeles Auto Show is almost upon us. The annual event opens to the public on November 18, but before that, automakers will unveil several new vehicles and concepts that car-loving attendees can see in person. With auto show activity generally down in recent years, the LA Auto Show seems particularly active.
Here’s a preview of the big debut, including new and updated models as well as concept cars that will grace the floor of the Los Angeles Convention Center.
2023 Toyota Prius
An all-new Prius hybrid is on the way. Toyota recently confirmed that its shadowy teaser images are indeed previewing the next-generation hybrid. Based on these teasers, the popular model looks sleeker than the current model.
Toyota will make an official reveal for the 2023 Prius on November 16. You can watch the live stream reveal here. Motor1.com.
2023 Porsche 911 Dakar
Off-roading is nothing new in the Porsche 911, although a dedicated version offered directly by Porsche is a neat addition to the 911 family. Spy shots and teaser images leave little to the imagination, showing the current-gen 911 with runny tires and more ground clearance to get off the pavement.

Design details and powertrain details are still a mystery, but all will be revealed on November 16.
2024 Subaru Impreza
Subaru separated the Impreza and WRX into separate models in 2014. The current WRX debuted for the 2022 model year, but it’s safe to say the new Impreza will feature similar styling cues. Subaru’s teaser images show a new hexagonal grille and an overall hatchback look, but that’s all we have to go by for now.
Look for the 2024 Impreza to debut on November 17.
2023 Lucid Air Pure/Touring
Lucid has garnered a lot of attention with its high-performance electric air sedan, though it comes at a hefty price. That changes at this year’s LA Auto Show with Lucid Air Pur and Touring trim levels, with prices starting at $87,400. That’s still a healthy chunk of change, but it puts the Lucid in a more competitive market to compete with other luxury EVs like the Porsche Tycoon.
Full details will be revealed on November 15, along with a dual-motor powertrain and distinctive styling.
2023 Fiat 500
We’ve seen spy photos and teasers for a hot Abarth 500 electric model, but it’s about to debut. after the The LA Auto Show has begun. Whether or not this distracts from other Fiat news in LA remains to be seen, but we do know the automaker has some announcements for the 500 coming during the show’s media days, either on November 16 or 17. .
2023 Hyundai Ioniq 6
The sleek Ioniq 6 was revealed globally in July, but Los Angeles will mark the EV’s North American debut. Don’t expect any design changes, but powertrain stats and range figures may differ from the version our InsideEVs colleagues drove in October. This revelation is happening on November 17.
2024 Kia Seltos
Like the Ioniq 6, the latest 2024 Kia Seltos was revealed to a global audience in June 2022 but now, it’s time to shine in North America. The subcompact SUV gets some pretty significant changes considering it’s only a few years old, and these changes will improve the model sold in the States.
That said, Kia will announce power ratings and other stats for the North American version on November 17.
2023 One Fast
Based in Vietnam, VinFast also operates in other parts of the world but the brand will have new EVs for the US on display in Los Angeles. Previously spotted with show cars in the States, production versions of the VF 6, VF 7, VF 8, and VF 9 EVs will be on hand for the first time. The debut will be on November 17.
New model of Toyota BZ series
In late October, Toyota dropped a teaser for a new bZ model that is “in development.” The teaser included an image of a four-door car with a hatchback at the back. To be fair, it looks a lot like the teasers for the new Prius, but Toyota specifically says it’s a bZ model.
That means an all-electric thing, and with Toyota already lighting up LA with the new Prius, it would be a great time to debut something extra. If so, expect some additional Toyota news on November 16.
2023 Genesis Electrified GV70/New Concept
The Genesis electrified GV70 was first shown in China nearly a year ago, but it’s finally landing on American shores for the 2022 LA Auto Show. And it won’t be the only one in the Genesis booth – the South Korean luxury brand also plans to reveal a new global concept vehicle, the details of which are still a mystery. Answers should be sent by November 17.
The 2022 LA Auto Show is open to the public from November 18-27 at the Los Angeles Convention Center.
