The 2023 Canadian International AutoShow has marked a successful return as Canada’s largest automotive and consumer show.
Celebrating its 50th anniversary, the AutoShow has been a showcase of automotive excellence and innovation, from the latest models offered by some of the world’s biggest automotive brands to the newest EVs that are leading to an electrified future to the luxury and exotic cars that tickle the imagination. For 10 days at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre, the automobile was the centre of attention, delighting fans young and old.
“The AutoShow has always been a reflection of the automotive industry, and we have seen that clearly at the 2023 AutoShow,” says Jason Campbell, General Manager of the AutoShow. “Over the course of this year’s show, we have seen the direction the sector is headed. New innovations are changing the way we drive. The government has put us on path to zero-emission vehicles, and we are exploring more electric and hydrogen options. Our manufacturer partners are connecting with potential consumers at the Show in new ways through engaging attractions and interesting cars.”
