The International Auto Show is a can’t-miss Event in San Francisco for anyone who loves cars.
Nearly 60 years ago, foreign car retailers in the Bay Area, not being able to showcase their imports at local shows, decided to begin staging their own Events. To cater to growing local interest in cars from around the world, the Import Car Show was the place for foreign car lovers to see the latest models coming in from all over the globe.
Given the shift in manufacturing to overseas factories and the greater global reach of foreign brand’s ability to compete with domestics, import and domestic auto shows merged into single events.Thus, in 1982, the Import Car Show moved to its new home at the Moscone Convention Center and was renamed the San Francisco International Auto Show.
Today, 58 years after the first Import Car Show, this Event in San Francisco showcases the innovations of 38 foreign and domestic auto makers. Cars for 2016 as well as future model years will be on display. There will also be exhibits highlighting up-and-coming alternative energy and hybrid technology. Special Events include test drives with Ford, Mazda, Mercedes Benz, Toyota and Chevy. Attendees will also be able to test new plug in electric vehicles.
If you’re in the market for a new car then this Event in San Francisco is a chance to see many of the latest models in one place rather than having to go to several dealerships. You’ll be able to make a side-by-side comparison all with the absence of pushy salespeople.
