The ongoing Los Angeles Auto Show is attracting tens of thousands of visitors with a variety of electric, hybrid, hydrogen vehicles that consume less gas, produce zero or less emissions boast of more energy efficiency.

The show, held at the Los Angeles Convention Center from Nov. 19 to 28, demonstrated about 900 vehicles. While style is important, more important is fuel economy.

Ford, the leading auto manufacturer in the United States and the world, tried to show its muscle again after the setback in the recent financial crisis. It almost occupies one third of the West Hall at the convention center.

Mark Fields, Ford Motor Co.'s president of the Americas, told the press that for 2011 Ford is offering 13 vehicles which will lead their segment in fuel economy.

He debuted the 2012 Ford Focus, with many technological features such as active park assist, Ford's SYNC with Traffic, Directions and Information and HD radio, all while getting 40 miles per gallon (mpg) on the highway.

Ford promises to make fuel economy affordable for millions of consumers and soon will put on the road its fourth vehicle delivering 40 mpg or more in 2011 - more than any other full-line automaker.

At present, Ford has 13 vehicles including cars, utilities and crossovers that lead their sales segments in fuel economy in the United States - a number no other automaker matches.
