Article looking at the highlights of the 2015 Shanghai Auto Show and the car launches both international and domestic Chinese cars.

Thanks to a change of venue, this year’s Shanghai Auto Show has become the biggest in the world. The new National Exhibition and Convention Centre is the largest exhibition space in the world, comprising 16 giant halls.

Now in its 16th year, the biennial Shanghai show alternates years with one in Beijing. With the mainland having become the world’s largest car market, the show has grown to eclipse regional rivals such as the Tokyo Motor Show and is now considered of equal importance to the likes of events in Geneva, New York and Frankfurt. In the course of the weeklong event, the 350,000 square metres of exhibition space welcomed more than 900,000 visitors – many of whom were eagerly sizing up cars to buy.
