On the 17th of June, the Vietnam Auto Expo 2015 was officially opened at Giang Vo Exhibition Centre Hanoi and is expected to last until June 20th. However, the exhibition was again a huge disappointment for visitors due to lack of brands, with Subaru alone in the middle of dozens electric bicycle brands.
“Thanks” to confirmation of the exhibition for imported cars that will take place in Hanoi in October, many auto brands that are normally featured at Auto Expo are not there this year, such as Audi, Land Rover, Chrysler, Jeep or Dodge… Even the Chinese brands that are often fond of participating in the event are now gone. Subaru is the only renown automaker to be at the exhibition this year, featuring its 2 new products Legacy and Outback.
The phrase “electric bicycle everywhere” can be used to describe Auto Expo 2015
If you come to the expo in hope of finding a car, you will certainly be disappointed. Auto Expo 2015 is now only a playing field for electric bicycle makers to learn the market, find potential partners and sign some contracts…
The commercial vehicles featured at the Expo are still mainly from China such as FAW. Tata Daewoo JunJin, Hyundai also features some models. VEAM’s booth (the Vietnam engine and agricultural machinery corporation) can also be found, featuring 47-seater bus or Nissan-powered trucks…
Even trucks and special-purpose vehicles at the Expo are from China
Many parts and accessories companies participate in this year’s exhibition, such as Tan Phat, Caska, Viet Phat, Elig, Truong Sa, Nhan Hoa, SRC Tire, Dang Gia, Itsuwa, Okatsune, Nissei Eco, GSI, BNB, Ecoburn, Nano Hoang Long, Big Power, VNET, Thanh Tung Audio… but none was able to provide a breakthrough and attract visitors.
