The Reno Auto Show is in progress at the Reno-Sparks Convention Center. For this year’s event 19 dealerships from the Truckee Meadows are all under one top, making it the biggest show in 30 years. That is an advantage for the auto merchants because national car deals in 2015 are supposed to be the most noteworthy in ten years. For three days, contending dealerships are meeting up, aiming to sell their most recent models.
Jimmy Minor, show promoter noted that since the event is a show and sale one this implies any buyer can take his auto home right from the showroom’s floor. The car expo also attracts visitors looking to see what is new on the market and test get some input on models and costs.
The current year’s car deals are expected to be the most substantial since 2005, anticipated at 17 million autos, counting more than $550 billion in new vehicle income. Doreen Hicks, Reno Buick GMC Cadillac Director of Marketing showed confidence about the coming car expo and noted that there is a certainty that deals will be closed at the event. The Reno Auto Show works as a sale launch pad for the whole the year, offering local auto dealerships an opportunity to display their autos to a more extensive spectrum of clients.
Jin Lee, Acura/Infiniti of Reno General Manager explained that most of the visitors are serious prospective costumers which are now doing some research about models, prices and specs and will probably buy them in six months or less.
Sales patterns are inclining towards light duty trucks and SUVs with those categories expanding over 10% since 2013.
Jin Lee commented:
“Especially in our market, here, we do sell a lot more SUVs and pickups than other markets, 4-wheel drives, all-wheel drives. So, definitely, lower gas prices will help us.”
While gas costs have decreased to about $2.20 per gallon, the occasion still offers the most recent models in terms of fuel productivity, including cross breeds and electric autos. Visitors appreciate the possibility of being able to get all types of models in one place which allows them to better compare them in terms of price and specs. The Reno Auto Show opened on Friday at 12 pm. The show only lasts for three days, closing Sunday at 5 pm. Entrance is free but center parking at the convention costs $8 per car.
By the time the automobile expo closes at 5 p.m. Sunday, coordinators expect that more than 12,000 visitors will have halted at the event, helping merchants get a good year start. Among the cars available for purchase is a 2015 GMC Sierra Denali pickup truck that is decorated in Nevada Wolf Pack colors as a feature of a wrap.
