KL Motor Show returns after 5-year hiatus

After a five-year sabbatical, the organizers, the Malaysian Automotive Association, have decided to revive the Kuala Lumpur International Motor Show (KLIMS) this year. Only its 9th edition, the KLIMS 2018 will be held from 23 November to 2 December at the Malaysia International Trade and Exhibition Center (MITEC), instead of the usual PWTC (Putra World Trade Center).



The Malaysian Automotive Association (MAA) has launched the groundwork for the most significant motor show in the country. Themed “Beyond Mobility”, preparations are underway for auto marques to showcase their exhilarating automobiles and promote their R&D achievements and visions at KLIMS’18. One of the highlights of the motor show is the electrification of cars as the global automotive industry calibrates to changing energy, environmental, and safety influences.  “The automotive industry is a revolution in motion. Technological advancement and innovative initiatives of the world’s brands are powering a mobility phenomenon that have changed the way a car drives. Consumers are also demanding better user experience, safety features and energy efficient vehicles on their powertrains,” said Aishah Ahmad, President of MAA.

Big names like Honda, Toyota, Nissan, Perodua and Proton will again be the big exhibitors at the KLIMS.  Honda Malaysia is participating in KLIMS’18 with the focus on Next Generation Advanced Technology. “KLIMS’18 is a platform to showcase our advanced engineering and future vision in Malaysia. We are proud to be the pioneer in bringing hybrid into the Malaysia market and followed by Sport Hybrid where Malaysia is the only country outside Japan to introduce it. Honda Malaysia is the first Japanese mass market manufacturer to introduce the Turbo engine and we have further thrilled the market with the World’s Fastest Front-Wheel-Drive production car, Civic Type R. Not only these, Honda has also introduced the Next Generation Advanced Safety Technology, Honda SENSING to the Malaysian market,” said Toichi Ishiyama, MD and CEO of Honda Malaysia.

Perodua, Malaysia’s No 1 Energy-Efficient Vehicle (EEV) manufacturer, will be highlighting its technologies according to the KLIMS theme, as well as displaying vehicle trends designed to excite the crowd. In addition, the National makers will be showcasing a host of vehicles and technologies that extend beyond the vehicles themselves to suit modern lifestyles and current trends.

Electric mobility at 2018 KLIMS

According to the “Global Electric Vehicle Market Outlook 2018,” available on Reportbuyer, the electric vehicle market has a market potential of about 25 million units sold by 2025 and more than 400 models will be made available. In 2017, it has reached the 1.2 million sales mark with more than 165 models available for sale.
