Auto shows were in decline even before the pandemic, but a solid slate of introductions at the Los Angeles auto show bodes well for their continued relevance.

The Los Angeles Auto Show dates to 1907 and is one of the world's leading auto shows, but as with the former Frankfurt Motor Show, the L.A. show has pivoted from showcasing shiny new totems of internal combustion to a mobility-oriented show under the brand Automobility LA.

Today the show draws 5,000 journalists from more than 50 countries to the media preview day where carmakers still unveil upcoming models in extravagant introductions.

The show expects to host tens of thousands of industry decision-makers and influencers as well as hundreds of thousands of potential car buyers who will visit during the public days.

This year's introductions include new cars from Toyota, Hyundai, Genesis, Porsche, Kia, Fiat, and Subaru.
