The new car buying platform YesAuto UK claims to have launched the UK's first online virtual reality car show, the YesAuto UK Car Show.
The online event is designed to help connect car buyers with dealers and sellers, enabling attendees to browse, purchase and book test drives of the cars they want.
YesAuto UK stated that the event provided an "innovative new way" for online browsing and buying cars from leading brands, and provided buyers with more choices.
YesAuto UK was officially launched in the UK last month (August) with the purpose of attracting car buyers to dealerships through its online store and car information.
Neil You, Managing Director of YesAuto UK said: "We are delighted to bring the YesAuto virtual car show to the UK for the first time.
" The innovative car buying experience provides you with a great opportunity to learn about the various brands and models that YesAuto must provide. It has the characteristics that make YesAuto unique in the car buyer space, making the car buying experience smooth, simple, and easy. As much as possible."
From the VR 360 panoramic technology to the test drive booking function, users can see the VR interior and exterior views of the car they want to buy from a laptop, iPad, or mobile device.
By providing 19 exhibition halls, attendees will be able to:
Interact with the owner of the virtual showroom
View the exterior and interior of 142 different virtual 3D car models, from economic models to luxury sports cars
Real-time interaction with 100 brands and dealers, including BMW, Land Rover, Aston Martin, Nissan and Fiat
Discuss the sales model with key opinion leaders (including influential car influencers), they will introduce the unique selling points of the car to the visitors
The YesAuto UK auto show is one of some large auto shows canceled in Europe due to the coronavirus pandemic, including the 2020 Geneva Motor Show.
