Greener motoring showcase opens in Birmingham

A new two-day Greener Motoring Exhibition has started today at the National Motorcycle Museum in Birmingham.

The exhibition of vehicles and technologies has been organised by the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders and will run alongside the Environmentally Friendly Vehicle Conference.

The conference is part of the UK presidency of G8 and the EU, and will be chaired by transport secretary, Alistair Darling MP.

The exhibition will showcase the investment made by the motor industry in the drive to sustainable motoring.

It includes a selection of alternative-fuelled models, like the Toyota Prius petrol-electric hybrid and Volvo's V70 bi-fuel CNG car. Volkswagen will showcase their fuel-cell and hybrid Tourans, and a synthetic-fuelled Skoda Fabia, with BMW showing a 7-series capable of running on hydrogen and petrol. There will also be a Lotus Elise sports car which runs on natural gas.
