07-30-2010 08:37 BJT

LOS ANGELES, July 29 (Xinhua) -- The organizers of this year's Los Angeles Auto Show, one of the major international automobile exhibitions to be held in November on the U.S. western coast, said on Thursday that the premiere event will stage the world debut of more than 20 new vehicles.

Many more cars will also make their debut in North America during the 12-day event, they added.

Approximately 40 new models will premiere during the 2010 Press Days on Nov. 17 and 18, the organizers said, as this year's show will feature a greater number of significant World Debuts than ever before.

They cover a broad range of ground-breaking vehicles that run the entire spectrum from high-end sports cars and wild green concepts to minivans and sedans. Every debut features advanced technologies in fuel economy, safety and telematics.

The unveiling ceremonies will be presented by manufacturers in Europe and Asia, in addition to the United States, and more international media are expected to attend, the organizers said.

"The growing global significance of the LA show is clearly demonstrated by the number and importance of the debuts," said Andy Fuzesi, general manager of the LA Auto Show.

In addition to more debuts, the auto industry's continued recovery has spurred greater participation and engagement from manufacturers at the show. Nissan and Infiniti are returning with a major presence after a one-year break from auto shows. Several significant World Debuts are expected from Nissan including the all-new Quest minivan. There will also be important news about the much anticipated all-electric LEAF.

Also, Fiat is returning to the United States after almost a 27- year hiatus and will feature its new vehicle for the U.S. market, the Fiat 500-Cinquecento.

This year's show also marks the long-awaited arrival of the electric car era. After years of preparation and debate, final- production electric vehicles will be for sale to the general public. The show will feature the highly anticipated, first-to- market Chevrolet Volt and Nissan LEAF, as well as a number of other electric vehicles coming in 2011.

As one of the top auto shows in the world, the LA Auto Show will provide a comprehensive glimpse of the industry's present and future as the industry transforms to meet unprecedented changes in economic conditions, environmental factors and consumer preferences.

The show opens to public on Nov. 19-28 after two days of exclusive show for the press.
