New motor show for London

Future Drive Motor Show will launch in London next year from May 5 as an opportunity for manufacturers to display their latest high-tech and cutting edge vehicles to the public.

The show will be held at the ExCel in London and has evolved out of the EcoVelocity low carbon motor show that attracted 58,000 visitors at its inaugural ExCeL event this year.

Event organiser Giles Brown said: “According to our research visitors are looking for a show where they can see new vehicles, take a test drive, talk to the experts and arm themselves with knowledge that will help them in their buying decision process.

“Motorists are faced with an ever more complex range of technology to consider when they look to buy their new mode of transport – whether it is a car or a bike, Future Drive will deliver all this and more.”

The change for the event is as a direct result of visitor research highlighting that seeing and test driving the latest high-tech vehicles was the most important reason to visit a motor show and that they expected new cars to be more environmentally friendly as standard.

Future Drive, will take place at ExCeL London from May 5- 12 next year and will also include an electric supercar paddock, a garage of the future, a motorbike and scooter test drive area as well as a kiddies driving area.

    Can't see it working...Goodwood already has the driving days prior to the FoS and the British Motorshow didn't work when it was at Excel, so i can't see this attracting too many big brands.
