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.
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 “KLIMS’18 is a great 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.”
Toichi Ishiyama added, “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 “As Malaysia’s No 1 Energy-Efficient Vehicle (EEV) manufacturer, Perodua will be highlighting its technologies in this area at KLIMS’18, as well as displaying vehicle trends designed to excite the young as well as the young-at-heart. There will be something for everybody!”
Datuk (Dr) Aminar Rashid Salleh, added “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.”
Datuk Aishah Ahmad commented “KLIMS’18 is a platform to gather key industry players to advance the automotive market in Malaysia. Sustainable mobility can be realised through a collaborative approach between auto-makers, fuel companies, associated industries, end users and regulators. We should pursue an automotive market in Malaysia that is beneficial for personal mobility and the economic prosperity that vehicles bring, while minimising the impact to the environment.”
