The Los Angeles Auto Show was held this week for the first time since the pandemic began.This is a show full of news and revelations, which is not the case with other shows we have seen this year, and Automatic blog Every minute is on the floor. Well, in any case, both Riswick and Stokesdale are like this. The rest of us are sitting at home in sweatpants, but hey, we will be praised anyway. let’s start.
This is the Hyundai Seven Concept Car, which is intended as a preview of the upcoming electric SUV under the Ioniq brand. It is more inclined to the concept than the production car, but it is expected that the final SUV will draw design cues from the seven concept cars.
The Hyundai Seven’s rival is not the only large and bold electric SUV in Los Angeles this year. Kia has its own style. It is a modernized version of the traditional boxy utility vehicle concept EV9. It also previewed the brand’s next production electric car, which should look like something like telluride.
As promised, the 2023 Kia Sportage HEV has been unveiled. The hybrid power system makes the compact SUV the most powerful version available and will go on sale next year. The engine is a turbocharged 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine with a 44 kilowatt electric motor. The total output power is 226 horsepower. The company did not give a torque figure, but it should be basically the same as the Sorento HEV with the same basic power system: 258 lb-ft. These figures are a healthy improvement over the 187 horsepower of the basic 2.5-liter engine.
If you notice that the new Range Rover has been exceptionally smooth and polite in recent presentations, Automatic blog James Riswick participated in a design tour and revealed some of the technical secrets of its success. “Less is more” is harder to achieve than it seems.
Fisker brought the new Ocean EV to the Los Angeles Auto Show, and made a public preview in Manhattan Beach, and it was unveiled at the auto show. You can watch the public display above and see more shots of the exhibition hall below. According to Fisker, Ocean’s starting price is $37,499 (not including bonuses). The entry model will be a sporty interior with a single 275-horsepower electric motor driving the front wheels and an estimated 250-mile range. It also has a 0-60 time of 6.9 seconds.
This is the 2023 Toyota bZ4X, which will enter the US showroom next year as Toyota’s first all-electric 50-state SUV. No, you are not imagining things. This is the third time Toyota has demonstrated its new electric car. The first one is the prototype. Recently we saw the model of the Japanese market and its stupid yoke. In addition, we have seen the Subaru Solterra several times and it is basically the same.Today, we are studying the Toyota variant that will actually become Sell Here, the traditional steering wheel and so on.
Porsche has launched the long-awaited (and long-rumored) 718 Cayman GT4 RS. It is powered by the 911 GT3 engine and is an ode to driving and engineering, designed for the best performance on the track and maximum enjoyment on the winding roads.
The 2022 Porsche Cayman GT4 RS may already look like a road racer, but the real race car is actually the new Cayman GT4 RS Clubsport. The GT4 RS Clubsport, which was unveiled along with road cars at the Los Angeles Auto Show, is a certified racing car that anyone can buy and use in the SRO racing series without any modification.
Just because the Porsche Taycan is electric, it does not mean that it is not subject to the same menu of additional variants, which are launched every year after new models or new generations are introduced. The basic version, 4S version and Turbo version have been launched, as well as the off-road, wagon-like Cross Turismo. It is only a matter of time before the next hitter in the lineup: 2022 Porsche Taycan GTS and Taycan GTS sports cars.
The road to production of the Nissan Ariya in 2023 feels very long, but it is truly over, and as the official pricing indicates, you can pre-order one now. Nissan drew a page from the Hummer EV script and only provided some selected combinations. More variants will go on sale later. In addition, the interior of the Nissan Ariya is particularly impressive.
Another year, another round of Hellcat news. You might think that the people of Stellatis have no other variant names at this time, but don’t worry. Debuted at the 2021 Los Angeles Auto Show, these are the 2022 Dodge Charger and Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye wide-body jailbreak models. All the names before “Prison Break” are old news, so let us understand the meaning of Prison Break in Dodge’s words. The most important element is that it essentially allows you to go crazy from a customization perspective, unlocking potentially intimidating combinations of personalization. From a performance point of view, this means that the power of the 6.2-liter supercharged V8 engine has increased by 10 horsepower. Yes, the jailbroken versions of the Charger and Challenger Redeye will each have 807 horsepower instead of 797 horsepower.

Generally speaking, it It is larger and more capable than the existing CX-5.
This is not a kind of unveiling ceremony in Los Angeles, but it is also not true, because Nissan has updated its new Rogue. Sometimes, the development of the car and its engine is not consistent, which is why last year’s new Rogue debuted only in a slightly updated version of the previous generation engine. This is why the 2022 Nissan Rogue welcomes a new standard engine under its hood, otherwise it will remain unchanged. Yes, standard Engine, not another option. The good news is that it is a great engine that makes Rogue better than before.
With the launch of Solterra, Subaru finally took the first step into the world of electric vehicles. The enlarged crossover is positioned as an electric car, and it will do everything that gasoline Subaru does, including transporting its nature-loving crew to the outdoors. Therefore, its design considers light off-road, which is a problem that many other electric vehicles have not solved.
Say hello to the five of Mullens. Mullen, headquartered in Southern California, is experimenting with a luxury electric crossover, which made its debut at the Los Angeles Auto Show. Like many electric car startups, Mullen claims to be large in number and reasonably priced. Whether Mullen can bring this idea into the reality of production cars is a completely different story and a question that only time can answer.
