British Motor Show marques
16 February 2006

The British Motor Show has issued its first list of carmakers attending the July show. A second announcement is to follow at some later point.

Of the major players, BMW (their first British show for six years), Ford, Renault, Peugeot, Nissan, Toyota, Citroen, Chevrolet, Chrysler, Vauxhall and Honda will be there. Bentley (despite VW's decision not to go), Cadillac, Jaguar, Land Rover, Volvo, TVR, Saab, Mazda, Rolls-Royce, Mitsubishi, MINI, Hyundai, Daihatsu, Kia, Lotus and Lexus are also confirmed.

As the Show promises 50 manufacturers, there are sure to be some other major and intriguing names added to that list. Hopes are riding high for this year’s show, relocated as it has been to London’s Docklands. There will be an off-road course, a 3,000-seat arena with five daily shows and a test track, where you can take some of the cars for a drive.

The show is from 20-30 July at ExCeL London. Tickets go on sale in March; go to or call 0870 060 0245. Tickets for weekdays are £8, for weekends £12 or for the first day, £30.
