L.A. Auto Show features sexy, green Jaguar

There will be more than 20 North American debuts featured at the 2010 Los Angeles Auto Show, which begins on Friday. The focus of this year's show will be the latest in electric, hybrid and plug-in hybrid cars.One of the highlights of the show is the Jaguar CX75, an electric car with an extended range. It has twin gas turbine engines that will recharge the battery once you run the battery down.

It's the best of both worlds because it's a green car, but it's still sexy and exotic.

"I think there's a misconception that perhaps green cars can be very conservative, very pedestrian. This certainly isn't. This is about style, this is about performance, both together," said Jaguar Design Director Ian Callum.

The 2012 Volkswagen Eos convertible, which won't be introduced to the U.S. market until early next spring, is another vehicle creating buzz that can be seen at the show.

The L.A. Auto Show runs from Nov. 19 - 28. For information on hours and ticket prices, visit www.laautoshow.com.
