The electric city cars include the Fiat 500E and the Chevrolet Spark EV.

Non-electric novelties include the Mercedes SLS AMG Black Series, a 600 hp speedster inspired by the SLS AMG GT3 racing model with a top speed of 315km/h.

The German car maker will also attempt to steal the show with its spectacular Ener-G-Force concept. The SUV of the future packs plenty of electronics and eco-friendly features.

Motorheads can also look forward to the unveiling of the Kia Sorento, Acura RLX, Porsche Cayenne Turbo S and the Volkswagen Beetle convertible, which are all headed for the US market.

The LA Auto Show opens on Friday at Convention Centre in Los Angeles. It goes on to December 9. — AFP/Relaxnews
