For example 16 Premiers will be for electric or alternatively powered vehicles. In the Green Pavilion the “concept “cars will be more visionary than ever. The suppliers, equipment specialists, and other exhibitors will also unveil some 40 Premiers of their own. Visitors will find many exciting attractions both inside and outside the halls of GENEVA PALEXPO.

They will present more than a hundred World and European Premiers. Economy cars propelled by alternative technologies are the current driving force in the market, but unique luxury automobiles and new classical sports cars will also be competing for the adulation of the passionate.
