HA NOI (VNS) — The 2015 Vietnam International Motor Show (VIMS), the largest-ever event of its kind, kicked off at the Vietnam Exhibition and Fair Centre in Ha Noi yesterday.
The event will run until October 13.
This is the first exhibition by nine authorised auto importers and distributors in Viet Nam after they officially parted ways with the Viet Nam Automobile Manufacturers' Association (VAMA) after three years of cooperation.
VIMS 2015 is showcasing imported vehicles from Audi, BMW, Jaguar, Land Rover, Luxgen, Mini, Porsche, Renault and BAIC.
Laurent Genet, a representative of the auto importers, said the VIMS spanned more than 4,000 square meters and displays a variety of imported models including mid-end, sports, racing, luxury and super cars. The VIMS aimed to create a new standard for the Vietnamese automobile industry through efforts to provide a comprehensive, attractive and high-class "playground" for clients, Genet said.
Audi Vietnam showcases its A5 Sportback, A7 Sportback, A8L, Q3, Q5 and Q7.
Euro Auto, the authorized importer of BMW Group in Viet Nam, also officially launched its unprecedented booth. Displayed at the booth is a series of 8 models from a variety of segments, from Sedan, MPV, to SUV and even Motorsport, aimed at a number of different target customers.
VIMS 2015 will not only showcase vehicles, but also serve as a venue for importers to learn about support industries and related services such as banking, insurance and financial consultancy.
The exhibition is expected to attract many auto importers and distributors, as well as customers and car lovers from around the city. — VNS
