General Motors Corp. says it is scaling back its presence at the Los Angeles Auto Show next week.
Spokesman Scott Fosgard says GM planned to unveil a new Buick model, and Vice Chairman Bob Lutz was going to attend the show's media previews Nov. 19 and 20.
But Fosgard said Tuesday the new model will be unveiled at the Detroit auto show in January, and no executives will travel to Los Angeles.
He says the new model could get lost in the news about GM's cash crisis and efforts to get government aid. GM also wants to unveil the Buick in Detroit to get more exposure to Chinese journalists. Buick is a hot-selling product in China.
GM will still have a display at the Los Angeles show. The show is open to the public Nov. 21-30.
