Dubai International Motor Show revs up

25 Oct 2019

The most electrifying showcase of motor vehicles in the whole of the Middle East is back for 2019.

The Dubai International Motor Show is this time bringing along over a billion dirhams worth of hypercars, supercars and family vehicles in addition to Hyperloop technologies and drones that could revolutionise the transport industry from the ground up.

The biennial event is promising big surprises as it prepares to give visitors a look at the future of transportation.

This year’s show takes place from 12th to 16th November at the Dubai World Trade Centre and promises a deep examination of the transport and motoring industry.

The exhibition will feature the defining technology of today along with completely immersive virtual reality and augmented reality as well as a number of extremely rare motor vehicles.

The five-day event is to be the most exciting such meet-up in the motoring calendar of the region.

The 2019 show will include the biggest manufacturers in the world showcasing their brand-new models.

The line-up includes Gargash, BMW, Maserati, Cadillac, GMC, Nissan, Mercedes-Benz, Ferrari, Lincoln, Chevrolet, Mitsubishi, Jaguar Land Rover and more.

Ajlani Motors, which is based in the United Arab Emirates, will debut its new hypercar at the show, which has already begun to gain international attention prior to launch.

The Dubai International Motor Show will once more be a standout event for car lovers and commuters interested to see what their next vehicle is likely to be – and where mobility will be going in the future.

Andrew Wingrove, the director of the Dubai International Motor Show, says that the 2019 show is unquestionably the most experienced-oriented and advanced in the event’s 30-year history.

Wingrove says that since the last show, the synergy between AI-led tech, driving and motoring has gone to the very heart of how we will live in the future, and Dubai will showcase that fact.

The movement has gone far beyond just digital dashboard add-ons to controlling the operation and communication of on-road vehicles, according to Wingrove.

Experts say that by 2024, there will be as many as 220m 5G-connected vehicles on the road, a transformation that is resulting in a rethink of the entire driving and transport industry.

The 2019 Dubai International Motor Show will see visitors invited to become fully immersed in the future of transport.

This includes the likes of transformative smart vehicle technology, virtual reality test drives, the launch of augmented reality concept cars, and the Virgin Hyperloop One.

The motor show is the place where some of the automotive industry’s biggest names will launch their newest models.

This includes the world debut of the production model of the Aspark OWL, the electric hypercar from Japan that comes with 1,150 horsepower and can go from 0-100 kilometres per hour in under two seconds.

In today’s world, car insurance remains a legal obligation for UAE residents.

Even in the future though, car insurance will still be required to offer financial protection from theft and road accidents.
