80th international Geneva Motor Show

On the 8th March, Derek and myself visited the 80th International Geneva Motor Show, where over 150 world premieres took place, including the Subaru Hybrid Tourer concept car, the Stella Plug-in, plus, some new faces from Skoda including the Roomster Magic, Roomster Scout. In addition, the Fabia Combi,  Fabia  Ambiente, Fabia Elegance, Fabia Combi RS and Fabia RS. 

The halls of Palexpo was the venue for this the 80th Geneva International Motor Show and there was plenty to keep us drooling, with numerous green car additions. 

To qualify as a ‘world premiere’ the product must be an entirely new model. Furthermore, it must not have been presented to the public before or be on sale in the world, (even though Derek Slack Motors as official main dealers for Skoda, Surbaru and Isuzu on Teesside had snippets of inside information on some of our franchise premieres).

The great strengths of the Geneva Show have always been neutrality, representativeness and annuality. This explains the quantity and quality of the worldwide premieres that are presented each year by the greatest manufacturers. 

 A large number of new models, prototypes, and concept cars presented at the motor show showed the trend towards a future of more ecological and economical automobiles, which we at Derek Slack Motors fully endorse! Specialists and luxury marques, have always been a special attraction of the show, and this was to be no exception, with a number of streamlined concept cars. All in all it was another great show and one we hope to visit again. We look forward in seeing some of these new models arrive in our showroom in the very near future.

Thanks for reading.
