BEIJING – Luxury and electric vehicles emerged as bright spots at this year’s Beijing Auto Show, which kicked off this weekend in the aftermath of the coronavirus pandemic with about 200 fewer vehicles than previous shows.

China is the world’s largest auto market, but car sales have slumped in the last three years amid a nationwide slowdown in growth. The economic shock of Covid-19 earlier this year further hit the auto industry, which in 2018 accounted for about 10% of China’s retail sales and one-sixth of jobs, according to official figures.

Now in a sign of some recovery, global and domestic automakers alike are reporting increased demand – at least in the high-end or electric vehicle segment.

Despite a 60% year-on-year drop in sales in February, German luxury brand Porsche predicts its

Beijing auto show crowds check out electric vehicles, luxury cars

Sept. 28 (UPI) — Crowds flocked Monday to the 2020 Beijing International Automotive Exhibition, the only major international car show held this year because of the coronavirus pandemic, with potential buyers gawking at new luxury cars and electric vehicles.

Organizers postponed the show in April when the COVID-19 pandemic dampened Chinese car sales, which dropped by 79% during the February lockdown, Automotive News reported.

“The timing of the Beijing auto show could not have been any better,” said Chen Jinzhu, chief executive of Shanghai Mingliang Auto Service, told South China Morning Post. “The grand show may help the market regain its momentum after months of disappointing sales.”

More than 90 exhibitors, including established companies such as Audi, Daimler, General Motors and Volkswagen, showcased newest models and features on luxury brands such as BMW and Audi.

But the show also included new Chinese vehicle startups such as electric vehicle companies Li

Crowds at the Beijing Auto Show Signal China’s Spenders are Back

BEIJING — Right before executives and car enthusiasts could gather in Geneva for the big auto show there in early March, the organizers called it off. As the coronavirus spread, other shows followed suit: Detroit, Los Angeles, New York, Paris and São Paulo.

So after a long lull, the first major auto show since the pandemic hit opened this weekend in Beijing, giving automakers a chance to showcase new models and big ideas for the future. Under the pulsating lights, executives and car fans admired new rides from big Western companies like Ford and Volkswagen, and from Chinese rivals. The gleaming sport utility vehicles, sedans and other cars were aimed at China’s consumers, who have emerged from Covid-19 lockdowns with a yearning to spend.

The automakers are chasing people like Ben Cao. Mr. Cao, a 33-year-old Shanghai consultant, and his wife bought a dark blue Porsche Panamera sedan in May

Detroit auto show moves to fall, snatching prime fall window from LA Auto Show | Money

2021 Detroit auto show dates

— Motor Bella: Sept. 24-26

— The Gallery: Sept. 26

— Press Preview: Sept. 28-29

— AutoMobili-D: Sept. 28-30

— Industry Preview: Sept. 29-30

— Charity Preview: Oct. 1

— Public Show: Oct. 2-9

In addition, October is traditionally a slow time for conferences and trade shows downtown, Alexander said.

“This is a guaranteed piece of gigantic business for the city. We can easily fill the dates in June” with other conventions and shows. “It’s a brilliant move for hotels, restaurants and the hospitality business.”

The future of auto shows is anything but assured as automakers experiment with other ways to unveil new models, but moving to fall leaves Detroit’s signature show uniquely well-positioned in a period when many new vehicles go on sale — and puts several months between NAIAS and its top competitors.

In fact, October was some insiders’ preferred time in 2019,

Beijing auto show marks demand boom, but outlook remains murky – Newspaper

BEIJING: China’s auto market has rebounded smartly from the Covid-19 crash in recent months, especially for high-end cars, but questions about the durability of that recovery hung over the Beijing autoshow that started on Saturday.

A rare industry event being held in person during the pandemic, the show marks a triumph for the world’s biggest car market, pummelled from late last year as lockdowns froze economic activity in the country where the disease erupted.

However, this show will be a far cry from the usual ebullience as fewer attend, new models are scant and prospects remain uncertain.

Among the bright spots: the Chinese market’s sharp bounce since April, strong demand for midsize to large luxury vehicles and a flood of interest — and investment — in electric vehicles.

China’s auto sales rose 11.6 per cent in August from a year earlier, the fifth straight rise after plunging during the lockdown.
