The 2018 Beijing Motor Show opens its doors this week, promising to showcase China's commitment to a clean-powered drivetrain transition. That said, we expect to see emergent and established brands unveil a broad spectrum of low-emission designs aimed at the Chinese and to a broader extent global market. CDR will be in attendance on the press days to experience hands-on all of the latest cars, production and concept.
As part of our preparation we carry out background research on key production and concept cars slated to debut prior to every Auto Show that we attend. We thought we’d share the list of them here; maybe this will be useful to have with you if you are walking the floor this week, or just as a reference remotely. The designs highlighted here in bold are those which we feel are the most significant or interesting…
