KLIMS’18 Gearing Towards a Clean Malaysia with Focus on Electrification of Cars
The Kuala Lumpur International Motor Show 2018 (KLIMS’18), organised by the Malaysian Automotive Association (MAA), is making its 9th presentation from 23 November to 2 December 2018 at the Malaysia International Trade and Exhibition Center (MITEC).
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.
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.
Datuk Aishah Ahmad, President of MAA said “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.”
Honda Malaysia is participating in KLIMS’18 with the focus on Next Generation Advanced Technology. Toichi Ishiyama, MD and CEO of Honda Malaysia, said “Honda will further excite the Malaysia market with our Advanced Technology innovation as we strive to provide the joy and freedom of mobility to everyone. We are committed to produce vehicles that are fun-to-drive, environmentally friendly and class-leading safety technology. Honda assures that it is not going to be just about the vehicles, but the advanced technology beyond it.”
Datuk (Dr) Aminar Rashid Salleh, President and Chief Executive Officer of Perodua, said “Perodua will be showcasing a host of vehicles and technologies that extend beyond the vehicles themselves to suit modern lifestyles and global trends. People are at the heart of everything we do at Perodua. All our KLIMS’18 displays are directly geared towards the needs, wants and aspirations of the public.”
