On November 1, 2012, Baghdad Autoshow 2012 kicked off at the Baghdad International Fairground, Iraq. As a new Chinese independent auto brand, GAC Gonow showed up with full series including key models like Aoosed G5 SUV, Troy 500 and 100 pickups, and Mini van. As the largest and most influential post-war international auto show centering on Iraq and radiating the Middle East, the exhibition brought together over 100 world-famous auto brands. GAC Gonow stole the star-studded show with rich exhibits and professional Chinese show girls, presenting the most charming view from China to domestic and overseas insiders.
The exhibition ran ten days. In the opening day, Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri Maliki was present to cut the ribbon and addressed the exhibition. During the exhibition, Iraqi President Jalal Talabani and high-ranking officials of the Iraqi government personally visited the China zone, showing the close attention of the new Iraqi government to Iraq’s auto industry and its yearning for development. GAC Gonow hoped to take full advantage of the platform to recommend its independent and cost-effective vehicles to Iraqi people, and to be selected to contribute to Iraqi’s post-war rebuilding and regional economic construction.
GAC Gonow showed up with a strong lineup of five select models, including representative Aoosed G5 SUV, Troy 500 and 100 pickups popular in Iraq, Mini van 6380 and mini truck well known in the Middle East for economy, as well as refrigerating models modified based on the mini platform. The booth drew close attention from local consumers by diverse fine exhibits. Remarkably, eye-catching while Aoosed G5 is a model tailored to the special geographical environment of the Middle East including Iraq. The model uses a specially calibrated chassis and a 4×4 intelligent all-wheel-drive + TOD active torque distribution system, and is powered by highly reliable Mitsubishi 4G69 gasoline engine to cope with the harsh road conditions of desert areas in the Middle East. Another model Troy 500 pickup was also attractive due to its fashionable and grand exterior and new-generation chassis.
