The Los Angeles Auto Show announced in September that it would hold an inaugural awards program called THE ZEVAS this year. That stands for The LA Auto Show Zero-Emission Vehicle Awards. THE ZEVAS pays homage to the latest in zero-emission vehicles (ZEV) that are either available on the market now or available for pre-order. The awards program puts a focus on both emerging and established automakers as they introduce zero-emission vehicles. The term “zero-emissions vehicles” actually includes both battery-electric vehicles and hybrid vehicles in this case. (Which doesn’t make much sense, but hey, we don’t run the awards show — we have our own.)

Lisa Kaz, CEO and owner of the LA Auto Show, touched upon this historic era of electrification: “Electrification is the biggest transformation the auto industry has experienced in 100 years.”
As far as the event, she said: “With accelerating consumer interest in electric vehicles, there is no better place for the new car and truck buyer to learn about, experience, and compare the latest and greatest electric vehicles and gas-powered models all in one convenient place.”
