The OC Auto Show has returned to the Anaheim Convention Center for the first time since 2019, and thousands of attendees will flock to the ACC through Sunday, October 2 to explore hundreds of new cars, trucks, crossovers, SUVs, electric vehicles, exotics and more.
Show-goers are invited to sit behind wheels, inspect engines, and experience new technologies, and test-ride a range of new models.
Two popular attractions at the show are Electric Avenue and the Jeep exhibit.
Electric Avenue gives attendees the opportunity to take a ride in a variety of electric vehicles such as the F-150 Lightning and the Ford Mustang Mach-E. Event-goers were lined up there this afternoon, with most wanting to try out the Lightning electric pick-up.
Jeep is offering test rides in all-new models over a series of climbing obstacles at its “Camp Jeep” test track to demonstrate their off-road capabilities.
There’s a clear emphasis on EVs at the show. Ford, KIA, Hyundai, VW and other car makers are there with a full range of EVs for attendees to touch, feel and sit-in.
The OC Auto Show is projected to have 20,000 attendees and this show is expected to bring $7.7 million in economic impact for the city. Tickets are $15 for an adult (one day), $12 for seniors, military and first responders. Kids 12 and under are free.
