Los Angeles is once again kicking off the domestic auto show season, and although the severe economic downturn has led GM to move the debut of its new sedans to Detroit -- the L.A. show will still serve as the launching pad for plenty of exciting ecofriendly sheetmetal.

L.A. highlights include the fuel-cell Kia Borrego, the 2010 Lexus RX 350 and RX 450h hybrid, the Volkswagen Touareg TDI Baja racer and the U.S. debut of the X5 xDrive35d!

Catch more coverage of the L.A. show from MotorTrend.com with such highlights as the 2008 2009 Infiniti G37 Convertible, 2010 Ford Fusion, and 2010 Mazda3. On top of that, there will be some goodies on hand for L.A.'s green scene, including the electric Mini E and a natural-gas-powered Toyota Camry Hybrid!
