The Johannesburg International Motor Show is the single largest international automotive event in Southern Africa. The exhibition is held once every 2 years and runs in conjunction with 2 additional shows ‘Auto Shop’ and the ‘Johannesburg Truck Show’. Collectively these shows offer a complete representation of the motor industry, serving Sub Saharan Africa and South Africa as host country.
This year’s Joburg Motor Show will take place at the MTN Johannesburg Expo Centre at Nasrec in Johannesburg from the 6th of October to the 16th of October. The Joburg Motor Show is basically a comprehensive automotive lifestyle showcase.
Some manufactures are going all out at this year’s event:
- After making its World Debut at the New York Motor Show in April 2010, the all new Kia Optima (together with the new Kia Rio) will be the 2nd new models to be unveiled by the Korean automaker at this year’s Johannesburg International Motor Show.
- The Tunland high end one-ton bakkie will be previewed on the Foton stand at the show. The Tunland one-ton bakkie will reach South Africa in the first half of 2012. It will be distributed by Foton South Africa’s passenger car division (a joint venture between the Imperial and Bidvest Groups).
- Nissan’s exhibition at this year’s show promises to be a showstopper. Motoring lovers will be able to get a sneak peek of the much anticipated Nissan Juke & Nissan LEAF. They will also have the chance to show off their driving skills in a Nissan GT-R Playstation 3 simulator. There will also be an opportunity to win some worthwhile prizes.
All this and a lot more at this year’s show!
