The Los Angeles Auto Show, an automotive and lifestyle in-person event, launched The LA Auto Show Zero-Emission Vehicle Awards or THE ZEVAS — a new, signature awards program set to debut at the iconic auto show this November in the US. The first awards program of its kind, THE ZEVAS honour the latest in zero-emission vehicles (ZEV) that are currently available for sale or pre-order.
The inaugural awards spotlight emerging and established automakers as they introduce all-new electric and hybrid vehicles, and new zero-emission versions of existing models. From Fisker’s Ocean, to Ford’s F-150 Lightning, to Porsche’s Taycan—the ZEV market is gaining strong momentum. With the LA Auto Show being the place for shoppers to discover, test, and determine their next ride, it’s no surprise that the LA Auto Show attendees’ interest in ZEVs has increased by 79% during the past 15 months (source: June 2021 LA Auto Show Consumer Attendee Survey).
Lisa Kaz, CEO and owner of the LA Auto Show, said, “Electrification is the biggest transformation the auto industry has experienced in 100 years.”
THE ZEVAS program will take place on November 17 at the annual AutoMobility LA — the LA Auto Show’s two-day press and trade event attracting automakers, tech companies, media, government officials, among other industry professionals.
THE ZEVAS will honour the best zero-emission vehicles in a variety of categories including Adventure, Family, Ridesharing, Personal Commuter, Workhorse, and more. Many nominees and award winners will be on display during this November’s much-anticipated return of the LA Auto Show.

The LA Auto Show opens its doors to the public on November 19-28 at the Los Angeles Convention Center.
