Plenty of SUVs debuted in LA, but the subtext was a big shift to electrics and plug-in hybrids. Audi, for one, says 25 percent of its sales will be electric by 2025.
In 1995, Alfa Romeo packed up its remaining few dealerships in the United States. Fiat closed shop here in 1983. Both companies have returned, but until now, it’s either been with razor’s edge two-seat sports cars or odd, cheap, Beetle-like economy cars.
