Car fans rejoice, the Malaysia Autoshow is back for 2018. It will be held from 26 to 29 April at Malaysia Agro Exposition Park, Serdang (MAEPS).
Usually staged in November, the Autoshow will be held in April from now so as to reduce crowding in the automotive show calendar: the global motor shows in Tokyo, Frankfurt and Paris are held in the second half of the year. The move to a time earlier in the year will increase the chances of the availability of better displays at the show from around the globe in the future, such as concept vehicles and latest technology related to transportation and mobility.
MAI Chief Executive Officer Dato’ Madani Sahari said that the decision to move the event to MAEPS last year proved to bring a wider array of attractions and new experiences to visitors, as the 2017 edition recorded more than 250,000 visitors.
Some of the biggest automotive brands in the country will be taking part in this year’s show with the theme ‘360-degree Mobility Experience’. More than 100 cars comprising some of the latest models in the market and Volvo classic cars will be on display.
Some of the major highlights of Malaysia Autoshow 2018 include:
