While there is no confirmation on how many carmakers will join the event this year under restrictions due to the pandemic, Chinese carmakers, especially the EV manufacturers, are likely to dominate the floor this year.

Some of the crowd-pullers in this year’s edition will be Nissan’s Ariya electric SUV. The ‘most important’ new product from the Japanese carmaker was unveiled recently. This will be the first time that Nissan will showcase the electric SUV to public outside Japan. It is expected to go on sale in China next year.
