Geneva Motor Show

The Geneva Motor Show is an annual exposition where you can find all the new cars, concept cars and car equipment. This show is in Palexpo next to Geneva airport. You can see in this article all the pictures I took during my visit.

To go there you have to buy a ticket at 16 CHF per person.  The show is open from 10 AM to 8 PM during working days, and from 9 AM to 7 PM during the weekend.

Airbus is surprisingly present to this show. In cooperation with Italian design they present their autonomous modular car concept. The system is composed of one capsule (where you can sit inside) and different modules, depending on which transport type you have to use for the trip.

  • Road : 4 wheels plugged to the capsule
  • Train : The capsule is parked in a train
  • Air : An octocopter plugged on the top of the capsule

The only thing you have to do is to book a trip, and all the rest is automatic.
