Los Angeles Auto Show has been Rescheduled to May 2021. Ever since the outbreak of the COVID-19, auto shows have either been canceling or postponing left and right.
However, it now seems that the Los Angeles Auto Show is no exception. Automotive News claims that the Los Angeles auto show event originally programmed to take place in the second half of November has been rescheduled for May 21st – 31st, 2021.
It is however believed an official announcement from show’s organizers confirmed that the new dates could come as early as this week.
However, if the event scheduled to take place in the City of Angels will be moved to may next year. It means that it will be sandwiched between the New York Auto Show which is due to commence in April.
And the Detroit Show (NAIAS) in June. As pointed out by “Automotive News”, It will be tricky for car manufacturers to decide where to unveil their shiny new model of cars.
Considering that there will be major auto shows in a three-month timeframe instead of the usual seven-month window in a regular year.
