Top EVs of the LA Auto Show
We had a great time at Automobility LA last week and saw some fantastic vehicles. We counted over 40 EVs from various manufacturers and look forward to even more next year. There were so many new EVs, and we put together our list of our Top 4:
- Coming in at Number 4, Because we love a good American muscle car combined with future tech, the Dodge Charger Daytona SRT. I look forward to making some 11s in this muscle monster.
- At number 3, a big surprise this year, was the unveiling of the Genesis X Convertible. The pictures don’t do this vehicle justice. It’s a beautiful vehicle and perfect for a sunny day in California.
- Our runner-up is one of the best-looking cars I’ve ever seen. The hydrogen fuel cell EV, Hyundai N Vision 74. It has a fantastic retro vibe combined with future tech. Please bring this to the roads Hyundai.
- Our favorite EV of the LA Auto Show comes down to a beautiful design in and out and for the creativity of throwing a tent on top, the Porsche Taycan Turbo S Cross Turismo. We are in Colorado; camping is part of our culture.
