Japanese Motor Companies May Skip 2020 Busan International Motor Show

The number of participating companies could possibly decrease significantly compared to last year’s motor show, with the announcement that all five Japanese cars will not attend the Busan International Motor Show next May.

According to the Busan Motor Show Organizing Committee, only BMW, Mini, and Cadillac were named among the imported cars who applied for early participation application while domestic automakers, Kia Motors, Renault Samsung Motors, and electric vehicle maker Camsis have also applied. 

Four Japanese brands participated at the 2018 Busan Motor Show except for Honda.

The organizers are currently encouraging participation among companies such as Mercedes-Benz, Audi, Volkswagen, Jaguar, Land Rover, Lamborghini, and Bentley.

They are also hoping that the Japanese carmakers will return now that Korea-Japan relations are improving.

At the 2018 Busan Motor Show, four Japanese car companies, as well as BMW, Mini Cooper. Mercedes Benz, Audi, Jaguar, Land Rover as well as eight domestic automakers participated in the event.
