London motor show 2017 – dates announced and tickets on sale
The London motor show will return in 2017 on 5-7 May 2017, for the second show since its resurrection last year
The 2017 London motor show will take place on 5-7 May next year, with a press and exhibitor day prior to the show’s public opening. It will return to Battersea Park, where last year’s show took place.
Last year’s show was the first time the event has been held after a hiatus since 2008, with a handful of cars making their debut at the show.
According to event organisers, a limited number of tickets will go on sale on 15th October, although when the rest of the tickets go on sale is as yet to be confirmed.
One car has already been confirmed to make its debut at the London motor show; MG’s upcoming small SUV, which will rival the Nissan Juke. Although the car’s name hasn’t yet been confirmed, MG’s head of sales and marketing, Matthew Chenyne, confirmed the internally-named ZS’s debut at next year’s show.
It’s the second MG model to make its official world debut at the show, after the brand revealed the GS SUV at the last show, which took place earlier this year.
Also at last year’s show, resurrected supercar maker TVR teased its upcoming model, and although no official announcement has been made, it’s very likely that the brand will have some presence at the show.
Although MG is the first carmaker to announce a presence at the show in 2017, last year’s debuts are likely to have given the reborn show some traction, so a similar, if not greater, number of models making their debut, and large manufacturers with presence at the show, is likely.
