Are you excited for this year’s Manila International Auto Show?
Car shows are back in the new normal with the 2023 Manila International Auto Show to be held on April 13-16 at World Trade Center in Pasay City, with the theme “Shaping Mobility.” This year is an exciting one as more brands shift toward electrification with hybrid and full-electric vehicles.
MIAS 2023 will be big and Petron will be joining as co-presenter of the show as well as the MIAS Custom and Classic Car Competition. As for the industry side, there will be a total of 15 brands all in all, along with more truck brands at the front lot of the World Trade Center Manila. This is up from the 12 brands that we knew participated in last year’s show.
There is an interesting statistic though: of the 12 automobile brands that participated in 2022, 6 brands were from China. This year will have 15 brands, with 9 from China. This will mark the first time that Chinese auto brands will command a majority of the booths compared to other brands from other countries, showing the potential of vehicles with an attractive value-for-money proposition in our market.
