Home / Automotive News / Geneva International Motor Show Begins This Week

The Geneva International Motor Show is the largest event on the motoring calendar, and today opened its doors to the press for exclusive access before opening to the public on Thursday.

Now in its 88th year, this annual event sees the global car industry and associated media set up camp in Geneva for 10 days (12, if you include press days) of showcasing the newest, most innovative models alongside revamped favourites. Truly looking to the future of the automotive industry, it’s no surprise that more and more fuel-efficient and electric vehicles make an appearance each year. Predictions suggest that electric cars and autonomous driving technology will be a key theme in this year’s show, along with exotic and extravagant supercar brands.

Yesterday, the ‘Car of the Year 2018′ award was won by the Volvo XC40, leading by a clear mile with a huge 83 points separating it from its competitors.

The Motor Show is situated a short distance from Geneva Airport, practically on the doorstep at just 2km away, making it a prime location for a day trip or short break for UK visitors wanting to experience the fun first-hand.
