2006 Los Angeles Auto Show

2006 Los Angeles Auto Show

Having been around for 100 years, the Los Angeles Auto Show was bigger and more important than ever this year, as organizers moved the ten-day event up by a month to move it away from the North American International Auto Show in Detroit held in mid January. That means more production and concept cars debuted at the L.A. Convention Center than usual as carmakers jockeyed to unveil to the world their latest creations. A noticeable trend at this year's event was environmentally friendly cars and alternate fuel systems, from BMW's hydrogen-powered 7-Series to the all-electric Tesla Roadster.

We've broken our coverage down into concept cars, alternative fuel vehicles, and the hottest new and notable production-ready autos.
