The 2012 Beijing International Automotive Exhibition kicks off on Monday, with ambitious carmakers from home and abroad rolling out a flurry of new models in the world's largest market.

According to organizers, the biennial auto extravaganza will see the worldwide launch of 120 new models, 36 of them from international brands, and these will include dozens of concept cars and new energy vehicles.

Following record growth in 2009 and 2010 that saw the nation emerge as the world's top car market, China's car sector stalled last year. Sales rose just 2.5 percent in 2011, slowing dramatically from the 32 percent growth in 2010 which reached 18.51 million units. Passenger-car sales grew 5.2 per cent.
