Seattle International Auto Show kicks off Thursday

The show features over 300 of the latest cars, trucks, SUVs, crossovers, vans, exotic cars and more.

SEATTLE – The 2022 Seattle International Auto Show will kick off the city from November 10 to November 13.

The show features over 300 of the latest cars, trucks, SUVs, crossovers, vans, exotic cars and more. Some super-premium cars from Bentley, McLaren, Lamborghini and Rolls Royce will also be on display at the show.

There are also attractions for kids, including a family play area with toys and face painting.

This year, the auto show features more electric vehicles (EVs) than ever before, which is increasingly relevant for Washington state. According to the Department of Licensing, the number of electric vehicles on Washington’s roads will increase 40% by 2021. The state also announced plans to ban the sale of new gas-powered cars starting in 2035.

Hummer has returned to the auto show after more than a decade and introduced consumers to the Hummer EV truck that can really “turn” sideways.

Automotive expert and Auto Show spokesman Tom Voelk said this weekend was also the first to get a first look at some of the new vehicles like the Chevy Blazer EV and Equinox EV.

“I haven’t even seen them yet and these are really important electric vehicles,” Voelk said.

Several vehicles are not yet available but will be on display for preview later this week, including the Alfa Romeo Tonale, Dodge Hornet EV and more. Voelk also says plug-in hybrids are still part of the auto show and his personal recommendation is for those looking to make the leap from scooters to the present.

“People often look down on hybrids. I drive a plug-in hybrid and have probably filled up my gas tank once in the last year.”

The Electric Highway display offers guests the chance to test drive a number of electric vehicles such as the Porsche Taycan Jaguar I-Pace and the Ford F 150 Lightning.

The Avants Then & Now display offers a historical look at cars and features classic models alongside their latest models. A 1958 DeVille Coupe will sit next to a 2022 Cadillac CT4V Blackwing. An eye-catching Art 1969 car will feature three perfectly restored 1969 BMW E3s and this is the first time the collection has been seen. exhibiting together in the US

The Seattle International Auto Show is open to the public starting at noon on Thursday. Ticket and parking information can be found on the event’s website. The Seattle International Auto Show is owned by the Washington State Automobile Dealers Association, which represents the state’s 300 new car and truck dealers.

The show takes place November 10-13 at the Lumen Field Event Center.
