While the forthcoming Future Drive Motor Show is looking for your help in developing its new direction since its name change (see story), it announces a new partner for the reborn event.
Set to take place next May, the new show will be sponsored by the Energy Saving Trust (EST), as it puts on a display of the latest high-tech and cutting edge vehicles at the London ExCel.
Announcing the new partnership, event organiser, Giles Brown said: “I am delighted that the Energy Saving Trust is on board for the Future Drive Show, it will join a number of key influencers at the show that can all help consumers find their way through the car and bike buying decision process. The automotive industry is a very fast moving sector and cars and bikes are quite different to even 5-years ago.”
“The Energy Saving Trust will also be able to advise consumers about the latest incentives available to motorists if they look to purchase a lower carbon vehicle, there is currently a £5,000 grant offered to purchasers of plug in vehicles.”
Caroline Watson, of the EST commented: “Consumers are faced with an array of decisions to make when selecting their ‘Future Drive’ and we hope at the show to be able to provide unbiased clear information and to maybe suggest options that they may not consider otherwise.”
Event organisers announced last October, that the EcoVelocity would be relaunched as the Future Drive Motor Show , with a new focus on the latest technology rather than just low-emitting and electric vehicles.
The Future Drive Motor Show will take place at ExCeL between May 5-12 2013 and run along side Grand Designs Live, as it did last time round.
Next May’s show will have a wide range of new vehicles on display and available for test drives. Future Drive 2013 will also include a host of features including an electric supercar paddock, a garage of the future, a motorbike and scooter test drive area as well as a kiddies driving area.
