|   Saturday, May 04, 2013
A host of high end vehicles were showcased at the Shanghai Motor Show this month and the range included vehicles manufactured close to home apart from other exotic imported rides. The exclusive example of a vehicle designed close to home as the Hongqi L9 while conventional exotic imported rides include the Lotus Youngman L3. However, Chinese players were not the only beneficiaries at the event as the foreign players were equally lucky.

The star automobile at the Shanghai Motor Show was undoubtedly the Maserati Ghibli.
This is a unique and a very important and interesting car from the house of Maserati and the company has plans to sell more than 50,000 units of the vehicle by 2015. The vehicle is powered by a host of diesel engines which is also a first for Maserati while the engines are mated to an eight speed automatic transmission system aimed at enhancing power displacement.

Maserati has plans to launch the right hand drive version of the car in the Chinese and European market while the first batch of vehicles is expected to be available in showrooms from autumn 2013. Ford has also unveiled the Escort at the event and this is a well thought about the name plate for the compact sedan concept.

The Escort should be sent to production very soon and this vehicle is expected to rival the Dacia Logan and the Citroen C Elysee. The styling concept of this vehicle is quite prominent and Ford has installed a large grille with prominent head and tail lamps on this vehicle. Ford claims that Escort has a fun to drive experience and is quite easy on the pockets too.

BMW has showcased the smaller X4 after the success experienced by the larger X3. BMW has plans to launch the X4 since the X3 gained massive popularity and this vehicle saves on the price, size and is fuel efficient. BMW is planning on develop a hybrid version of the car although a suitable launch date is yet to be finalized. Porsche has unveiled a long wheel based version of the Panamera and this vehicle has been designed exclusively for the Chinese chauffeured segment.

Tagged the Porsche Panamera Executive, the vehicle has been designed at par with the Panamera 4S and Turbo S and will feature the practicality of the machine while adding necessary features to the ride. However, Porsche plans on selling the Panamera Executive in America although it is unlikely to be sold in Europe as of now.

Audi has showcased the A3 Concept at the Shanghai Motor Show. This is a very important unveil for the company as the concept had been showcased a few years back without much ado. However, this time the vehicle received the applause that it deserved and Audi expects this vehicle to be a hit with the Chinese aristocracy. The Audi A3 is based on similar platform as that of the hatch back and this comes at a time the Chinese economy is on a growing curve.
