The British International Motor Show opened at the ExCeL Exhibition Centre in London’s Docklands and was the last regular British International Motorshow. The SMMT promoted an all-new showcase of the latest electric vehicle models. “The Electric Vehicle Village” brought together one of the largest collections of zero-emissions vehicles ever seen in the UK, with a display of more than 20 vehicles which are propelled solely by battery power. The motor show displayed a number of high-priced, high-performance electric cars such as the Lightning GT and Tesla Roadster.
