We recently told you that the Manila International Auto Show—the country’s biggest annual car show—is crossing over to the digital world. From December 16 to 20, an online version of the event will be held on its website. Called MIAS Wired, the five-day affair is a fitting end to a very challenge year for the whole industry.

In a time when people choose to stay inside their homes to avoid catching the dreaded virus, conducting activities in cyberspace seems like the only option we have right now. Will an online car show satisfy the typical gearhead who has been hibernating in the living room for months? Probably not. But it’s still better than nothing, especially if the purpose is just to keep abreast of the latest car-related developments.

So, what will you see on MIAS Wired? These are the automakers that are participating in the digital spectacle:

  • BMW
  • Changan
  • Chery
  • Chevrolet
  • Dodge
  • Foton
  • Geely
  • Hyundai
  • Jaguar
  • Jeep
  • Land Rover
  • Mercedes-Benz
  • MG
  • Nissan
  • Ram
  • Subaru
  • Suzuki

Noticeably absent are big names like Toyota, Ford and Honda. But that’s okay. We bet you’ll see enough to help you arrive at an informed car-buying decision if that’s the goal. Also, there are other features to be seen on MIAS Wired besides the vehicles of the above-mentioned brands.
