Monday 16 November 2009
And world's biggest automakers prepare for the upcoming Los Angeles Auto Show.
European Car of the Year announced
The 47th European Car of the Year will be chosen by representatives from seven prominent European car publications. Which car will be picked to follow the Opel/Vauxhall Insignia, last year's winner? Will it be the Toyota Prius, which was elected Japanese Car of the Year on October 22? The trophy will be awarded in January to the winning manufacturer.
Los Angeles Auto Show
Los Angeles Convention Center
One of the world's most important auto events, the 2008 version displayed 23 world debuts, the most in the exhibition's history. The list of world and North American debuts for this year is still being finalized but the latest Ford Fiesta, which has topped the bestseller list in Europe this year, will no doubt make a big splash. General admission for the public begins December 4. Tickets cost $12 for adults, $8 for seniors over 65 and free for children 12 and under when accompanied by an adult.
2010 Green Car of The Year Award
This prestigious award will be announced the day after the opening of the Los Angeles Auto Show. Five cars - three hybrids and two diesels - are in the running to follow the Volkswagen Jetta TDI diesel. The award is selected by an international jury panel in conjunction with Green Car Journal, a US-based quarterly publication that focuses on vehicles which use environmentally friendly technology.
10th Dubai International Motor Show
Dubai International Convention and Exhibition Center
Held every two years, the largest international automotive event in the Middle East is expected to attract over 100,000 guests from 25 countries, with over 500 exhibitors.
