2019 Toyota Prius AWD-e

LA-Auto-Show-LogoIt would seem more fitting for the Chicago or Detroit Auto Show, but Toyota chose the 2018 Los Angeles Auto Show to introduce a Prius with more “snow” appeal.

2020 Toyota Corolla Hybrid

2020 Toyota Corolla Hybrid

LA-Auto-Show-LogoToyota is known for its hybrids, and the company introduced yet another one at the 2018 Los Angeles Auto Show.

Actually, this was kind of a “two-fer”: Not only is it a new hybrid model, but it’s based on the new-for-2020 Corolla sedan (which itself is based on the redesigned 2019 Corolla Hatchback) that is not due to go on sale until March of next year — which is about the same timeframe Toyota is announcing for this hybrid version.

LA-Auto-Show-LogoLincoln introduced a new midsize SUV at the 2018 Los Angeles Auto Show. Called Aviator, the 3-row crossover boasts a number of new features along with a hybrid version seemingly aimed more at performance than fuel economy.

2019 Subaru Crosstrek Plug-in Hybrid

2019 Subaru Crosstrek Hybrid

LA-Auto-Show-LogoSubaru’s first plug-in hybrid will be making its public debut at the 2018 Los Angeles Auto Show. Based on the Crosstrek compact crossover that was redesigned last year, the Hybrid (Subaru doesn’t include “Plug-In” in the official name, but it does on the car’s badges) pairs a 2.0-liter flat-four engine with two electric motors. One of the motors is used to start the engine at stops and as a generator to recharge the lithium-ion battery, the other to help power the car and charge the battery under braking. As with the “regular” Crosstrek, the Hybrid comes standard with all-wheel drive, making it one of the few all-wheel-drive hybrids — and one of the least-expensive AWD plug-in hybrids — on the market.
