Green vehicles that will be making their UK debut at this year’s show will be the, Citroën C-Crosser, Saab 9-3 Convertible Bio-Power Anniversary Edition and the smart 2008 Edition.
THE MOTOREXPO GREEN ZONE:
With greener motoring at the forefront of everyone’s minds, the installation of the ‘Motorexpo Green Zone’ at the West Wintergarden will be a prime focus of the 2007 Canary Wharf Motorexpo, and showcases the latest developments from some of our manufacturers. Visitors will be offered an insight into alternative vehicle propulsion systems from leading brands such as Honda, Lexus, Saab and Vectrix. In addition, and as the sponsor for the Motorexpo Green Zone, BP will demonstrate their three stage programme of ‘Reduce, Replace and Neutralise’ – aimed at raising the awareness of individuals in regards to the personal reduction of CO2 emissions and as a result helping in the battle against climate change.
The Motorexpo Green Zone will be officially opened by Peter Ainsworth MP, Shadow Secretary of State for the Environment who will be joined by Bob Saunders of BP, and Chair of the BSI committee on Liquid Fuel Specification, both of whom will be hosted by Motorexpo Managing Director Graeme Carver. George Iacobescu, CEO of Canary Wharf Group said: “It is always a pleasure to host the Motorexpo on the estate as the cars look fantastic with Canary Wharf’s architecture as a backdrop and the sheer size of the show always impresses. I am pleased that the Motorexpo team has this year introduced a green zone into the show’s line-up, as in these times we must treat our environment as a priority and allow drivers to make an informed decision regarding their vehicle choice.”
The Canary Wharf Motorexpo is open to the public between 10am and 6pm from 11th to 17th June 2007 at Canary Wharf, London.
