The list of automakers that have confirmed their attendance includes Ford, General Motors, Toyota, Nissan, Jaguar Land Rover, Iveco and Mercedes-Benz.
The event, which is scheduled to take place at Rockingham Race Circuit in Northamptonshire, promises to mix multiple experiences, such as a business-to-business conference, an exhibition and ride-and-drive events. The eco show will be hosted by Cenex, a Centre of Excellence for Low Carbon and Fuel Cell technologies.
“I’m greatly encouraged by the response of the industry to LCV2011. The breadth of technologies that will be on display at LCV2011 proves that the UK automotive industry is at the forefront of developing future mobility solutions,” explains Brendan Connor, Cenex Chairman.
“It is becoming increasingly apparent that the industry’s first challenge is to advance the technologies – and required infrastructures – to make low carbon vehicles more economic to manufacture and easier to sell. The second challenge is to educate buyers – private, public and commercial – about the range of options available now and in the future."
The exhibition space has been extended by 40 percent, as the organizers have faced an unprecedented demand. It is expected that the exhibitors will be joined by 2,000 delegates from carmakers and the industry.
