外文标题：Shanghai auto show bans skimpily clad female models
SHANGHAI: The Shanghai Auto Show banned female models and automakers responded with dancers and fresh-faced young women holding tablet computers.
Organizers of China’s biggest auto show announced in February that models in slinky dresses who usually adorn the stands of some auto brands would be banned. It said it wanted visitors to focus on cars.
On Monday, Luxgen, a joint venture between state-owned Dongfeng Motor Co. and Yulon, a Taiwanese partner, opened its display with a performance by a chorus line of dancers.
At other stands, young women in sleeveless but more business-like dresses carried tablet computers to show visitors the details of cars.

“”It said it wanted visitors to focus on cars”” good one..
Whatever it may be, at least it will not be sex sells. Why should a good product be at the mercy of half dressed chics?

The decision is laudable and need be emulated particularly in view of wide spread incidences of rapes and crime against women.

There is no need for models in slinky dresses. The purpose is attract customers for better vehicles. Slinky models do not add anything to the quality of vehicles.
