Upstart American electric-vehicle automaker Fisker officially introduced its Ocean all-electric SUV at the 2021 Los Angeles Auto Show, with company founder and CEO Henrik Fisker presenting new details about the vehicle’s features, specs, performance, and technologies. Although the company has teased the public before with concept versions of the Ocean, this is the first time journalists were given a chance to look at what Fisker says is essentially the production version. The Ocean is the first production vehicle from Fisker Inc.—not the same organization as Fisker’s original namesake company that made the Fisker Karma plug-in-hybrid sedan.

Today, Toyota officially unveiled the U.S.-market production version of its all-new-for-2023 pure-electric SUV at a press event in Encinitas, California, just ahead of the 2021 Los Angeles Auto Show. The bZ4x is a compact 5-passenger crossover SUV that kicks off a new sub-brand of Toyota pure-electric vehicles. The “bZ” portion of the name stands for “beyond zero”—in reference to zero emissions—and bZ4X is the first of seven bZ-branded vehicles Toyota plans to introduce globally by 2025. Eight other battery-electric vehicles are planned as well, and counting traditional hybrids, plug-in hybrids, and hydrogen fuel cell vehicles, Toyota says they will offer about 70 electrified vehicles in various global markets by 2025.

2023 Mazda CX-50

Mazda unveiled an all-new compact SUV in a virtual presentation this week, just in advance of the 2021 edition of the Los Angeles Auto Show. The 2023 Mazda CX-50 represents a noteworthy expansion in focus for the brand—whereas other Mazdas are primarily tuned for on-road driving dynamics, the CX-50 is more overtly aimed at off-road driving and active-lifestyle adventures than any Mazda in recent memory. Mazda says it’s “purpose-built for outdoor enthusiasts.”
