WUHAN, Aug. 18 (Xinhua) -- As the 18th Central China International Auto Show closed on Monday in Wuhan, central China's Hubei Province, orders worth 3.52 billion yuan (about 507 million U.S. dollars) were inked.

The auto show was the first major business activity held in the city, once hard-hit by the COVID-19 epidemic, after a lockdown was removed in early April as the epidemic wanes.

The five-day auto show attracted exhibitors of over 60 auto brands, including BMW and Mercedes-Benz, to showcase new models.
