Global carmakers from Daimler to Toyota are showcasing their latest products and technologies at the ongoing China International Import Expo, as a sign of their confidence in the world's largest vehicle market.

German auto group Daimler, which has been participating in the annual event for four years in a row, is presenting passenger vehicles including its first large electric sedan, the EQS, and an emergency rescue truck built on its Arocs chassis.

Hubertus Troska, member of the board of management of Daimler AG responsible for Greater China, said: "Our participation underlines our strong commitment to the Chinese market and our customers.

"The CIIE is a prime example of China's promotion of free trade and opening up. It is also a valued opportunity for us to learn from and exchange with our customers, business partners and friends in China."

China is the largest market for Daimler. As it is shifting towards electric, many of its EV models will be introduced or locally produced in China as well.

In the coming months alone, the new EQA, EQB, EQS and the EQE will be launched in the Chinese market, said Daimler. The carmaker is scheduled to start production of Mercedes-Benz heavy-duty tractors in China in late 2022.
