Beijing Motor Show Set To Be Postponed Due To COVID Resurgence

The biennial Beijing auto show, which is scheduled to begin on April 21 in the Chinese capital, is expected to be postponed due to surging coronavirus infections in multiple cities across China.

Internal discussions are ongoing to reschedule the show, with no official information ready for public disclosure. Some reports indicate the show will be rescheduled for June.

Since the beginning of March, China has faced a new wave of the coronavirus, the worst since early 2020 when the pandemic took root. The latest outbreaks have forced some automakers and suppliers to idle Chinese plants in response to lockdown and quarantine measures imposed by local and regional authorities.

The Beijing and Shanghai auto shows, the country’s biggest, rotate annually. The 2020 Beijing auto show, originally scheduled for April 2020, took place in September 2020.
