2010 Beijing Auto Show
The ups and downs of the auto industry may have stalled the rapid rise of the Chinese auto market, but that hasn't kept the 2010 Beijing Auto Show from securing some top-notch debuts this year. Its status as one of the larger international shows has made the Beijing show an important stop for any manufacturer looking to make inroads to the significant Chinese market.
This year, some of the biggest debuts will come from luxury automakers. We expect to see two new long-wheelbase sedans from both Audi and BMW along with an all-new high-powered Ferrari 599 GTO and a V6-powered Porsche Panamera. Lamborghini is also showing a special model just for the Chinese market, while Ford is gearing up to unveil an all-new global concept that could be sold in China, Europe or the U.S. And don't forget the numerous home-market brands like BYD, Chery and Geely, all of which will be looking to use the Beijing show to display their latest new models for an international audience.
