Its successful holding is of great positive significance for boosting the morale of the global automobile industry, helping the steady recovery of China automobile industry and market, and promoting the formation of a new development pattern with domestic major circulation as the main body and domestic and international dual circulation promoting each other.
With “smart future” as the theme, 2020 Beijing auto show focuses on the integrated development of electrification, intelligence and networking, demonstrates the industry changes brought about by new energy, artificial intelligence, mobile Internet and other new technologies, and describes people’s beautiful vision for new travel mode and new automobile life. The highlights are outstanding and brilliant, which are mainly reflected in the following aspects:
Brilliant development in the field of technology
At this Beijing auto show, the development of technology attracts people’s attention. Electric vehicles with long endurance have been launched one after another, and the mode of electricity exchange has received unprecedented attention. Hydrogen energy vehicles have sprung up and hybrid electric vehicles have returned to the spotlight again. The automatic driving technology with artificial intelligence as the core and the Internet of vehicles architecture with 5G engine are also developing rapidly, attracting many technology companies. New technologies such as high computing power of fully automatic driving computing platform, intelligent cockpit integrated with multiple functions, 360 degree look around system with car specification chip and megapixel high-definition camera, and automatic parking have aroused great interest of the audience. Chinese and foreign enterprises competed to show their cutting-edge technological achievements and the latest solutions at the Beijing auto show, covering intelligent driving, intelligent cockpit, intelligent Internet connection, intelligent car cloud and other fields. Moreover, innovative technologies such as fuel cell stack, silicon carbide and intelligent cockpit were exhibited in China for the first time. The technological progress shown in this Beijing auto show makes us look forward to the future of the auto industry.
New energy vehicles
Today, the development of electric and intelligent has reached a critical moment, and major automobile enterprises have accelerated the layout in the field of new energy. Participants in the automotive industry, including vehicle manufacturers and parts suppliers, all presented their electric vehicle products representing their highest level of design, manufacturing and innovation at the Beijing auto show.
According to statistics, nearly 40% of the new vehicles on the market at this Beijing auto show are new energy vehicles. It has become a trend that the main engine manufacturers devote themselves to the research and development of electric vehicles. Especially in the domestic market, under the support of national policies, enterprises have focused on new energy products. Among the 160 new energy vehicles on display in Beijing auto show, 147 are new energy vehicles from Chinese auto companies. With the upgrading of the automobile industry and the gradual accumulation of new energy technologies, the new energy vehicle products of Chinese brands are becoming more and more mature. Domestic major automobile enterprises have launched their own new energy brands. The new energy brands of Dongfeng, BAIC and Geely, such as Lantu, Arcfox and Geometry, also met with the audience at the Beijing auto show for the first time. At the same time, it can be clearly seen at the Beijing auto show that while some traditional automobile enterprises and new forces of car manufacturing are making efforts to develop new energy vehicles, many luxury brands and joint-venture brands are also joining in, which makes the competition of new energy vehicles more and more fierce
The future of intelligent Internet travel
In recent years, the rapid development of Internet and artificial intelligence has injected new vitality into the Centennial automobile industry. At the current Beijing auto show, the trend of youth and technology has become more prominent. Various auto companies have brought the “black technology” of intelligent Internet connection, bringing the classic scenes that used to be seen only in science-fiction movies to the auto show site. Almost all the participating auto companies have products and technology reserves related to the field of intelligent assisted driving and automatic driving. Looking forward to the future development of automobiles, we will certainly break through our imagination.
In addition, the debut of many technology companies at the Beijing auto show also announced the start of a new “catfish”. Under the background that 5G technology is increasingly mature, AI is developing rapidly, and cloud computing has become the industrial foundation, and driven by the new four modernizations of automobiles, science and technology companies are likely to become the new force of automobile industry around the fields of automatic driving and intelligent ecology.
High end of independent brand and promotion of product strength through competition
This auto show has a strong lineup of independent brands, many brand-new models are dazzling, the appearance is fashionable, the interior is exquisite, and the power selection and intelligent networking technology have also been significantly improved.

At the exhibition site, many independent brands issued strategic plans for high-end development and launched strategic models of medium and high-end brands, redefined new market standards from the aspects of intelligence, health, power and space, so as to create brand-new vehicles with more product value for users. Behind the upgrading of independent brands, it is the boosting of core technology R&D capability and consumption upgrading. It is also the result of the new round of technological revolution and industrial transformation that enterprises follow the trend and strive to explore and practice.
