This is the first exhibition by nine authorised auto importers and distributors in Vietnam after they officially parted ways with the Vietnam 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 spans more than 4,000 square meters and displays a variety of imported models including mid-end, sports, racing, luxury and super cars. It aims 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 authorised importer of BMW Group in Vietnam , also officially launched its unprecedented booth. Displayed at the booth is a series of eight models from a variety of segments, from Sedan , MPV, to SUV and even Motorsport, targeting a number of different target customers.

VIMS 2015 not only showcases vehicles, but also serves as a venue for importers to learn about support industries and related services such as banking, insurance and financial consultancy.

The five-day exhibition is expected to attract many auto importers and distributors, as well as customers and car lovers from around the city.

The event will run until October 13./.
