WATCH: A History of Auto Manufacturing in Southern California (Exclusive)

As a way to preview the L.A. Auto Show, we thought it was important to take a look back at auto manufacturing here in Southern California. Detroit has always been known as the Motor City. However, GM, Ford and Chrysler also built their cars right here. AmericaJR.com’s Jason Rzucidlo visited the former sites of the GM plant in Van Nuys, the Ford factory in Pico Rivera and the Chrysler plant in Commerce. In addition, he gives you an inside look at the current Tesla assembly plant in Fremont and rare look inside the new Karma Automotive plant in Moreno Valley. GM was the last to close its Van Nuys facility in 1992 ending decades of automobiles being produced in the Southland. Shiny, new electric vehicles will begin rolling off the line in Moreno Valley beginning mid-2016.
