For this year manufacturers have also increased the Motorexpo’s interactive appeal with a record number of test drive opportunities on offer to visitors. Highlights include the all new BMW Z4, Land Rover’s Freelander 2 TD4_e (the world’s first SUV featuring intelligent Stop/Start technology) and Driving Experience, Volvo’s XC60 featuring their City Safety collision avoidance system and the Tesla Roadster, the most efficient high performance production sports car on the planet.

The event is completely free for the public to attend and runs until Sunday 14th June. Opening times are 10am-6pm daily (11am-5pm on Sunday) and The Directory 2009, the official guide of the 2009 Canary Wharf London Motorexpo, is available for free on arrival while stocks last.

Graeme Carver, Motorexpo managing director said: “I am delighted, particularly in the current climate, that we have received such great support from manufacturers for this year’s London Motorexpo. The credit crunch has resulted in an extremely painful automotive market and made the creation of our 2009 Canary Wharf event the most difficult show to organise since it launched back in 1996. Today has been one of our busiest opening days ever and we look forward to both welcoming visitors to this year’s London event all week and working alongside our exhibitors to try and drive sales at this very tough time”.
