Ecological transportation featured at the Green Pavilion

In 2009, the Geneva International Motor Show created the Green Pavilion focusing on developing ecological transportation technologies of the future.

For its first edition, the Green Pavilion featured exclusively highly qualified and specialist enterprises, institutes, and start-up groups, who could take advantage of this occasion to present the latest fruits of their research to the general public in the framework of a global exposition.

They could also develop their relationships with the automobile manufacturers exhibiting at the Motor Show. In the meantime, these constructors recognise this opportunity to present to the public their latest prototypes which are ready for mass production. The test drives available at the nearby GreenTests area contributed significantly to the success of the Pavilion’s concept.

For the 82nd edition of the Geneva International Motor Show the Green Pavilion and the Green Tests will move to the Parc Sarasin, the entry of which is just facing the main entrance of Palexpo. Access to the Green Pavilion is included in the main ticket for the Motor Show, and it will open its doors one hour ahead for the opening of the rest of the Show, at 9:00 a.m. on weekdays and at 8:00 a.m. on the weekends.

The 82nd Geneva International Motor Show will be open to the public from March 8-18, 2012.
