Karsan Concept V1
Karsan’s Concept V1 was among the top three finalists in the NYC Taxi of Tomorrow tender. Although the NV200 concept from Nissan won the deal, the Concept V1 has now been redeveloped as a platform for motorists with reduced mobility – including the elderly and disabled.
Jeep Grand Cherokee
The latest version of the Grand Cherokee goes on sale in the UK in July, so the Motorexpo is the perfect opportunity for potential buyers to see the SUV in the flesh. Accompanying the 2014 Grand Cherokee is a new 3.0 litre diesel engine option which, when mated to a new 8-speed automatic gearbox gives a driving range of around 770 miles.
The Jaguar stand at Motorexpo can expect a fair number of visitors over the course of the week as motoring fans flock to see the new F-type for the first time. Both the V8 and V6 versions of the car are on display.
McLaren 12C Spider
Inside the towering One Canada Square building a range of premium manufacturers have set up shop, with McLaren taking centre stage with both the MP4-12C Coupé and Spider on show. The company is also teasing the arrival of the P1 with a series of design blueprints blown up on the walls of the building.
Range Rover Sport
The Range Rover Sport dominates the rear lobby of One Canada Square, with its Range Rover sibling also garnering plenty of attention. Priced from £51,550 up to an eye-watering £81,550 the car is already available to order with deliveries expected in Q3 of this year.
Radical’s Le Mans-inspired RXC is billed as a racer for the road, and on paper it seems to find the balance between handling and performance easily. A low-maintenance Ford V6 engine provides the power for most models, while a 480bhp variant of Radical’s RP-Series V8 is also available for those seeking an even bigger thrill.
Mercedes SLS AMG
The SLS AMG seems to have struck a chord with those working in and around Canary Wharf, if the throngs of people queueing up to take a seat in the demonstration version is anything to go by. Still, the financial district is probably the best place for Mercedes to show the car, with its price tag of £168,485.
The Lighting GT supercar has been seen at a number of shows and in various stages in the run up to it becoming a full production model. That’s still some way off, although Lightning says it is targeting sales of 250 units per year.
The facelifted Skoda Superb has its UK debut at the MotorExpo. Headlines for the updated model focus on its fuel economy, which is up to 67.3mpg on the GreenLine version. C02 emissions remain low, too, down to 109 g/km.
Tesla Model S
Tesla is expecting a good turnout this week, with a spokesperson telling Autocar they expect at least 30 orders to be placed over the course of the show. The car's innovative interior and stylish design is sure to attract passing office workers from the surrounding skyscrapers.
