The Beijing Motor Show 2020 (September 26 - October 5) was held at two sites: the New China International Exhibition Center (New Venue) located near the Beijing Capital International Airport, and the Old China International Exhibition Center (Old Venue), located in the center of the city.
The New Venue was comprised of exhibitions of motor vehicle OEMs and major components suppliers, while the Old Venue showcased components and selected models from the NEV (New Energy Vehicle) automakers.
This year's exhibit area was 200,000 square meters, which is 20,000 square meters smaller than the 2018 Beijing Motor Show. According to the event organizers, there were 785 vehicle models on display.
At this year’s motor show, Honda unveiled its first Honda-brand EV (electric vehicle) concept car in China, as well as a PHV (plug-in hybrid) version of its popular CR-V model. Emphasizing that it is an OEM offering a full lineup of electrified models, Toyota announced that it will provide e-Pallete vehicles for the 2022 Beijing Winter Olympics.
Among the three German automakers, the Q4 e-tron concept car based on the MEB platform, which VW Group’s Audi brand plans to produce in China in 2022, was unveiled. BMW displayed the iX3, a domestically manufactured electric SUV scheduled to go on sale within the year. The company also introduced the M Series of sporty, high-performance cars.
