With one of China's biggest biannual auto exhibitions to date just two weeks away, car companies from across the world have begun publishing teasers of the concept models and production vehicles that they'll be taking to Auto Shanghai.

Monday and Tuesday were big days among automobile manufacturers to publish sneak peeks. Here's what we've seen so far:

Infiniti Qs Inspiration

Infiniti announced on Tuesday that it will be debuting the Qs Inspiration electric sports sedan concept in Shanghai - a model with modern, minimalist and clutter-free design cues that represents the future of the company as well as the industry as a whole.

Chevy Trailblazer and Tracker

Also on Tuesday, Motor1 reported that Chevy will be bringing back the Trailblazer and Tracker SUVs - two models that were discontinued in North America back in 2009 and 2004.

Volkwagen ID Roomzz

VW announced on Tuesday that the ID family will be expanding with the ID Roomzz electric full-size SUV that's expected to hit the market, first in China, in 2021.

Audi AI:me showcar

The AI:me showcar that Audi announced on April 2 is a design study that will "illustrate the vision of an automated driving compact car for the megacities of tomorrow".

Buick Encore and Encore GX

On Monday, Buick revealed shadowy images of the upcoming second-generation Encore subcompact crossover, accompanied by what the company calls the Encore GX, an allegedly more compact model.

Nissan sedan and two concepts

Nissan is keeping its Shanghai debuts rather mysterious, simply announcing on Monday that it would unveil a new, currently nameless, sedan, as well as two electrified concept vehicles.
