The Chinese capital is hosting once every two years the Beijing Auto Show that is becoming one of world's most prominent motor exhibitions. At the Beijing Auto Show, manufacturers from around the world target the ever-expanding Chinese car market.

According to Auto Express, the vast majority of the cars displayed at the 2016 Beijing Auto Show will specifically target China. Auto experts expect exciting news cars from major automaker brands such as Audi, Porsche, Honda and Renault, among others.

Chinese brands like Chery, Dongfeng, BAIC and Geely will all be present at the show. According to the automotive publication Motoring, Chinese car giant Chery has revealed a sketch of its latest creation, the electric crossover FV2030 concept that will compete against the China-only ultra-sleek Mazda CX-4 SUV.

While Chinese automakers' car models are yet not so attractive for the western customers, there is a chance that some of them will extend their operations into the global markets in the future. The 2016 Beijing Auto Show edition will also feature plenty of China-only car models of familiar brands including a long wheelbase Mercedes E-Class and a plug-in Ford C-MAX.

The Beijing Motor Show is scheduled in 2016 between the dated of April 29 and May 4. According to the publication Women of China, the organizing committee of Auto China 2016 has announced recently revealed that at the 2016 Beijing Auto Show there will be no women models.

The organizing unit explains in a notification that the decision was made in order to direct attention back to the original purpose and meaning of the motor show. The organizers aim to create a safe, clean and orderly exhibition environment and to make the audience focus their attention on the purpose and the original meaning of the auto show.

According to the statement, the automaker companies attending the 2016 Beijing Auto Show should use healthy perspective and good taste to promote and to reject "low publicity stunts that are harmful" to the Chinese culture. China's ban on auto models is not the first case. During the 2015 Shanghai auto show has happened the first Chinese ban on car models.
