The 2017 Los Angeles Auto Show wrapped up on Monday, Dec. 10th after 10 days dedicated to unveiling “the future of mobility in the car culture capital of the world.” Launched in 1907 in a skating rink with 99 cars, the L.A. Auto Show was the first of its kind on the West Coast and the largest show west of Chicago with 3,000 attendees. 110 years later, it is still one of the most sought-after venues with nearly 1,000 vehicles on display in the world’s No. 1 car-buying market.
This year’s show was met with anticipation and curiosity as upcoming designs, both under the hood and stylistically, were on display for the public to see. Fueling methods of future automobiles played a part as one significant industry shift, and there is no other place more fitting to display zero-emission vehicles (ZEVs) than The Golden State.
“There’s no question that this is the show where automakers want to talk about alternative fuel and alternative power trains,” said Joe Wiesenfelder, the executive editor of Cars.com. “In California especially, it’s such a hot segment.”
California currently has more than 284,000 ZEVs on its roads with over 20 models on the market. With a challenging statewide goal of 1.5M ZEVs cumulatively by 2025, this is the niche market on which many automakers are focusing.
Across the floor of the Los Angeles Convention Center, brands such as BMW, Jaguar, Mercedes-Benz, Tesla, Volvo, Audi and VW, just to name a few, touted shiny debut and concept ZEVs for the masses to behold.

With global mandates for a zero-emission future quickly approaching as soon as 2019, automakers were educating on-lookers about upcoming ZEVs. While many vehicles on display were plug-in hybrids, BMW promised 25 electric models by 2025, and Mercedes-Benz plans to beat that, offering electric versions of every car in its lineup by 2022. VW was committed to 50 electric models and 30 hybrids across all its brands — Audi, Porsche, SEAT and Skoda — by 2025.
Audi of America’s president, Scott Keogh said, “Our customers are highly educated, part of the creative class. They want to make a difference. They’re the kind of customers who want to buy cool things.” The brand plans to offer three all-electric vehicles by 2020.
BMW board member Klaus Frölich told reporters, “For us, electric mobility is the new normal… We will deliver whatever powertrain our customers desire.” These sentiments are becoming commonplace among automakers as realization sets in that fossil fuel will no longer be the go-to option in the next two decades with plug-in electrics and all electric-hydrogen fuel-cell vehicles approaching at an alarming rate.
RONN Motor Group, Inc. is a global leader in zero-emission, long-range transportation platforms, committed to merging globally conscious solutions with the human experience. Its full-line range of all electric-hydrogen fuel-cell vehicles will encompass automobiles, intercity buses, fleet delivery and light-duty trucks, as well as future Hypercars, bridging the gap between electrification and a fuel-cell future.
Right now anyone has the limited opportunity to invest in a forward-moving company like RONN Motor Group, Inc. through Regulation A+. Investment opportunities once limited to high net worth individuals are now accessible to everyone. For those who believe that a zero-emission future and dynamic automotive design can be attained hand-in-hand, there is still time to invest. Together we can accelerate the future.
