AUTOBLOG CANADA LAUNCHES QUÉBEC EDITION

Driving original automotive content in Québec

AOL Canada announced today the launch of Autoblog Québec (quebec.autoblog.com)
the French language edition of its popular automotive site Autoblog Canada
(ca.autoblog.com).

Autoblog Québec, led by editor Jean-François Savoie will combine award-winning
content from the international editions of the site with featured content from
key contributors, including Philippe Laguë, of L’annuel de l’auto and Le
Devoir, and local journalists from across the province. With 50 per cent of
Quebecers (3 million UVs) currently visiting automotive sites, Autoblog Québec
will provide a new destination for original automotive news and industry
content, new car reviews, international auto show coverage and captivating
best-in-class photo and video galleries to a highly engaged audience*.

“We saw great demand from both users and advertisers to bring the Autoblog
Canada blend of original edgy content and comprehensive reviews to our French
speaking audience in Quebec and across the country,” said Paul Cramp, general
manager, Autoblog Canada.

The launch will extend the distinctive and authoritative voice and original
content offered by Autoblog Canada to french speaking visitors. The expansion
only further supports AOL Canada’s commitment to growth for both French
language sites and original local content, as Autoblog Québec joins Le
Huffington Post Québec in AOL Canada’s growing French language portfolio.

AOL Autos, which includes Autoblog Canada currently attracts 712,000 unique
monthly visitors across Canada*. AOL visitors in Québec have a strong purchase
intent and are 28% more likely than the average online adult in Québec to buy
or lease a vehicle in the next 12 months**.
