EV ruling, Detroit makers shutting down except for trucks

Los Angeles California -And then there were nine.

The Los Angeles Auto Show opened Thursday with the North American Car, Truck and Utility of the Year Awards announcing the finalists for the 2024 award. The finalists track industry trends with five of the finalists being all-electric and two being gas-electric hybrids. Governments led by California are increasing fines on automakers starting in 2026 for producing only electric vehicles by 2035.

Detroit brands dominated the truck category but were left out of the car and SUV candidates with only one electric vehicle, the Chevy Silverado EV work truck, making the list.

The NACTOY Awards are one of the most prestigious awards in the industry, with an independent jury of 50 North American journalists judging the results. “We come from diverse media backgrounds, and we come together to reach consensus. That’s the power of this award,” said NACTOY President Jeff Gilbert of WWJ Radio (950 AM) in Detroit.
