The Nissan Leaf will be one of several electric, hybrid or alternative-fuel vehicles on display at the LA Auto Show.
UPDATE: Congrats to GurlinLA, who won the 4-pack of tickets to the LA Auto Show! Thanks to all who participated, and stay tuned for another LA Auto Show giveaway.
The LA Auto Show will be motoring into the city tomorrow, parking tons of cars at the Los Angeles Convention Center downtown through Nov. 28, and this mom is super-excited about checking out the latest electric and hybrid automobiles that could make trips to the gas station a little less frequent.
Maybe I'm a sucker for that new car smell, but I have to admit, I really like the idea of getting into the driver's seat of sleek and technologically cool cars -- even if it's just for a few minutes. Or maybe it's just because my own vehicle is about to hit nine years old -- getting up there in car years.
In addition to checking out fun concept cars that look more suited to a Mars roving session than navigating the 405, moms and dads can make the day fun for the kiddos as well.
The Nissan Quest Kids' Fun Zone, open Nov. 20-21 & 26-28, will offer a selection of interactive attractions for the 12-and-under set, including:
- Bounce Houses
- Dodge Kids' Course (My child behind a mini wheel?! She'll love it!)
- Face painting
- Video games
