New car models debut at Sharjah Expo
The Expo Centre in Sharjah will host the 11th edition of the biannual International Automobile Show this Wednesday. In a panel at the Expo Centre, the participating dealers discussed the new vehicle models that will debut. Exhibitors, like Mitsubishi and GM, announced that new models would be shown for the first time at the Expo. Liberty Automobiles Co. will debut the long-anticipated Camaro Firebreather, which they expect will draw fans from across the UAE to the show.
The mid-size car has been featured in the Hollywood thriller ' Jinn'. Duncan Peat, Managing Director at Liberty, said they hope to sell 15 cars at the show against the 9 they sold in 2010.
Officials from UAE-based dealerships, including BMW, Mitsubishi, Cadillac, Cheverolet, Opel, Audi, Merecdez Benz and Nissan, revealed more details about their marquees, which they will be displaying at the show.
Al Habtoor Motors Co. , the distributors for Mitsubishi, said they would be showcasing new models for the first time but didn't want to give more details, except to say two of the models are mystery cars.
One of these cars will be shown for the first time in the GCC while the second car, which has been successful in Thailand was already in the showrooms, said the agent. "It sold over 30,000 units since March of this year," Mersedeh Mahdi, General Manager, Marketing at Al Habtoor.
