The 85th Geneva International Auto Show: Spectacular display of new vehicles and technologies from around the world


The Geneva International Motor Show will open to the public from March 5 – 15, 2015. The election of the Car of the Year and two Press Days will precede this opening, which will be presided over by Mrs Doris Leuthard, a member of the Swiss Federal Council. Some 130 new models and concept cars will be presented to more than 700,000 visitors and will occupy every square metre of space in the exhibition halls of Palexpo. This year some 900 vehicles will be on exhibit, nearly a hundred of which already conform to the strict European Union emission norms that will come into effect in 2021. The watchmaker TAG Heuer will pay homage to more than a hundred years of motor sports in a special interactive exhibition.

On the Monday before the public opening, journalists will gather for the final election and presentation of the prestigious « Car of the Year 2015 » award. Following this will be two Press Days which will allow more than 10,000 media representatives from all over the world to have a preview of the new models being presented by the attending manufacturers. There will be around 130 World or European Premieres that have already been announced, plus a few surprises. Thursday, March 5th, will bring the official opening ceremony presided over by Mrs Doris Leuthard, a member of the Swiss Federal Council, following which more than 700,000 visitors, including a large portion from outside of Switzerland, will be attending during the eleven public days of the event.

Nearly 220 exhibitors will be presenting some 900 vehicles at this year’s Show. Qoros, a Chinese manufacturer at the Show, will be exhibiting for the third consecutive year while a large number of preparation specialists and top automotive designers will be presenting for the first time at Palexpo, including Radical Sportscars, Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus, ED Design, Phiaro, and Segula.  Borgward, a manufacturer for nearly 100 years, will celebrate its renaissance at the Show. Finally, all the models on exhibit that produce no more than 95 grams of CO2/km will be presented in a special brochure produced by the Geneva International Motor Show organisers in cooperation with SuisseEnergie, the Swiss federal energy department. It will be available with the Visitors Guide at all of the entrances to the Motor Show.

One complete hall at Palexpo has traditionally been dedicated to suppliers of accessories, equipment, materials, etc. to the automotive sector. This major annual gathering also highlights the Swiss automotive supplier industry and its products and services in the areas of accessories, replacement parts, and professional garage equipment and supplies.

The prestigious watchmaker TAG Heuer is well known for its involvement in motor sports. They will organize a special and interactive exhibition covering 1000 m2 featuring their historic and current support for Formula 1, Rally, Endurance racing and Formula E, as well as mythical races in the past such as the Carrera Panamericana and today’s historic race car festivals such as the Goodwood Revival and Festival of Speed.

The Geneva International Motor Show will be open for eleven days, from 10:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. on weekdays and from 9:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. on the weekends. To help spread out the number of visitors during the day and to enhance their comfort, a reduction of 50% off the admission ticket prices will be offered from 4:00 p.m. each day.

To reduce the stress and complications of travelling to the Show by car, numerous special trains will be travelling to and from the Geneva Airport railway station, which is next to Palexpo. There will be combination tickets (train and entry to the Show) offered by the CFF (Swiss Railways Company) at reduced prices.

For visitors to the Motor Show travelling by car, the traffic will be managed by the Geneva Police, supported by traffic information by radio on RTS1 FV 91.2, and be directed to the 13 parking areas surrounding Palexpo. Shuttle busses will transport visitors from these parking areas to the main entrance of the Geneva International Motor Show. Visitors coming from France can leave their cars in the parking area of the Macumba night club in St-Julien-en-Genevois (Dept.74) and take a shuttle bus from there to Palexpo.

The Geneva International Motor Show is one of the most important and attractive showcases in the automobile world. It is one of the “Top 5” in the world but is the only one to be held annually in Europe that is recognized by the OICA (International Organisation of Automobile Constructors).

To help the public to prepare for their visit, to discover weekly the new developments and models for the Show, and to purchase entry tickets online, they can visit the official Motor Show website, which will be continuously updated.
