The 12 Vehicles That Debuted at the LA Auto Show in 2022

The LA Auto Show is back for another edition with a show floor that is more heavily populated than it was in 2021. The annual winter event is typically the location of several model debuts and 2022 is no different.

Some of the vehicles on this list were previously unveiled online or in other countries and are making their public appearance for the first time on U.S. shores while others, like the new Subaru Impreza, were uncovered at the show.

This year's show is marked by several electric vehicle (EV) debuts from industry heavyweights, as well as the return of a vehicle that was one of the first EVs offered for sale in the country.

The 2022 LA Auto Show runs November 18-27 at the Los Angeles Convention Center.

Fiat 500 Giorgio Armani

The haute house of Armani styled this electric version of the Fiat 500e. Metal coverings were etched with exclusive microchevron engraving, making it look like three-dimensional fabric, creating a two-tone look without any paint. The gray/green "silk effect" exterior color is complemented by a "GA" logo on the wheel and custom fabric on the soft top. Amber colored windows are the car's equivalent of chic sunglasses.
