The Chinese automobile market is expanding in pace with the country's rapid economic growth, and it was no surprise that the 7th Beijing International Motor Show was jam-packed from the morning. Outside the gate, there were long lines of more people trying to buy tickets to this exciting event.

Honda Booth, designed under the theme of The Joy of Mobility Life, displayed Accord, Odyssey, CR-V, Stream, and the environmentally-friendly Civic Hybrid cars and attracted the enthusiastic Chinese visitors. This show had just another hero, ASIMO the humanoid robot that symbolized Honda's cutting-edge technology.

ASIMO debuts in Beijing

At the cue from the companion lady, ASIMO came onstage down the stairs and was received with applause and flashlights. ASIMO greeted the audience in the popular Chinese phrase "Nee-how" and demonstrated some favorite steps. ASIMO shook hands good-bye before leaving the stage and the Chinese audience that enjoyed every moment of the incredible performance.
ASIMO appeared four times a day during the Motor Show and had some very busy days whilst in China.
