  4. 4. info@autoforecastsolutions.com 855.734.4590www.autoforecastsolutions.com AutoForecast Solutions 4 2015LosAngelesAutoShow Almost Ready for PrimetimePlayers The Los Angeles show, like the very Chinese Shanghai show and the very German Frankfurt show, is definitely a product of its locale. The air of Southern California typically permeates this particular show probably more than either Shanghai or Frankfurt take from their surroundings. With the LA show, you can usually expect a little “tree hugger” among the products shown. For this year’s show, however, the super clean cars are noticeably absent. No world premieres of fully electric models. Fuel cell vehicles and hybrids are sparse on the floor of the Los Angeles Convention Center. While the event wasn’t home to the debut of the latest gas- guzzling behemoth, introductions were obviously influenced by the public’s shift due to lower gas prices. Los Angeles gives auto makers a venue for their wares almost two months before the “big” show in Detroit. The timing and location provide two things that they can’t get in January. First, there’s the location: Southern California is home to a notoriously strong car culture which appreciates flashy and tends to avoid tradition. Second, because it’s not as international as the Detroit show, auto makers can get a larger share of eyeballs that might not be available in Michigan. If you want to grow your brand in the United States, getting the attention of the fashion- forward buyers of Southern California can be a foot in the door. Buick, for example, used the LA show to introduce it’s largest (and most popular) sedan to the world. China is the biggest market for Buick, but they are still fighting for market share in North America. Hoping to tickle the fancy of locals could be a big boost for the very attractive new LaCrosse. With thousands more press and almost too many introductions in Detroit, a new product can get lost. The “big fish in a little pond” attitude can go a long way, again using the LaCrosse as a prime example. It would have been easy to launch the new Buick in the brand’s hometown show, but would it have gained as much attention? A slowdown in alternatively-fueled introductions may be temporary, but the value of the LA show is definitely not going away.
