For the Auto Industry, California Already Has Seceded

For the moment, however, the Honda Civic is at center stage. It is the No. 1 vehicle in California, accounting for 4.4% of the state's retail, and in Los Angeles, where it accounts for 4.5%.

Honda is refreshing the vehicle just two years after it unveiled the 2012 model. "The 2012 was criticized," said Jefferies analyst Peter Nesvold, on the Jefferies/Edmunds conference call. "It's critical that Honda keep this product fresh and highly relevant."

Among luxury vehicles, the focus is on the world debut of the Acura RLX. The debut is important for Acura, Caldwell said, because the company "has had a series of cars that have not done so well." Additionally, Porsche will debut its 2014 Cayman sports car. Also, BMW will unveil the i8 concept roadster, an open-top two-seater, which will get 78 miles per gallon with extremely low emissions.
