The LA Auto Show begins on Wednesday, but already there is information on two new vehicles being unveiled at the event.

Nissan has announced a new Murano crossover convertible, and Honda says it will be unveiling a new electric car.

2011 Nissan Murano Crosscabriolet

This Nissan Murano crossover cabriolet is a first, claimed to be a combination of the open air exhilaration of a convertible and the versatility of the Murano 4x4.

Nissan claims this four-seater cabriolet will be available in early 2011, however we’re not sure how many people will be flocking to their local dealership to buy one - to say it's odd looking is an understatement.

No more details have been released yet, so we’ll have to wait until the grand unveiling at the LA Auto Show to let you know more.
