While most of the major international new-car auto shows were canceled this year because of the coronavirus pandemic, the Beijing International Automotive Exhibition, aka Auto China 2020, was merely postponed. Until now. The show completed its media preview on September 27 and opened Trade Days on the 28th. Public visitors will be admitted from October 1-5.

The show, featuring new cars and concepts, is being held in the China International Exhibition Center.

Thanks to the US branch of the British-based Newspress media service, we can present this gallery of vehicles that were the highlights of the press preview days.

Songsan not only copies the first-gen Corvette design, but even a Route 66-style logo for its display of a pair of its oversized clones, which have hybrid powertrains

  1. How sad that China has to copy, steal everything! Patents mean nothing to China. No imagination.

    Thank God for Trump finally putting some teeth into US trade policies!

    Buy USA!

    • USA was stealing everything European it could in the beginning of last century and nobody seemed to mind it.

      What’s the big deal when someone else is following in their steps today?

  2. The Songsang cars look like Disney cartoons in a “Cars VII” sequel. If the Hong E-HS9 doesn’t sell well, they can be used as bricks to construct more unoccupied apartment buildings.

  3. As a car enthusiast and ground up hobby restorationist, I personally love the idea of mixing new with old. American car manufacturers have danced around the fringes for the past decade with the Challenger, Camaro, Mustang and recently the jeep but nothing like this.
    I would proudly add one of these cars to my collection of American Muscle.
