28.1.2013 2013 Geneva Motor Show starts March 5th
Next on the calendar of 2013 motor shows is the Geneva International Motor Show, which will open to the public from 7th to 17th March.
Now in its 83rd year, the 2013 Geneva Motor Show will also be the venue for announcing the prestigious Car of the Year Award, which will take place on March 4th, just prior to the show's press days.
Each year, the Geneva Motor Show welcomes more than 10,000 journalists from all over the world during the press days, held on March 5th and 6th this year. The ten public show days will start on March 7th, and are expected to be busier than ever this year, with lots of exciting vehicle launches and displays to see.
During the two press days, exhibiting manufacturers will launch more than a hundred new models and concept cars. They will be presenting the new strategies for their companies and showcasing the main trends in the development of the automobile industry during some 65 press conferences.
The Car of the Year Award is the oldest automobile prize, celebrating its 50th year this year, and is chosen from eight finalists. 59 journalists from 23 countries will form the selection committee this year, who will decide on 2013's winner.
Each year they vote to decide on the most exceptional car from all those launched on the European market the year before the election. To be eligible, the model must have targeted annual sales of at least 5,000 units.
The eight finalists for the award were chosen last December from 32 eligible new models. These finalists are:
* Ford B-Max,
* Hyundai i30
* Mercedes A Class
* Peugeot 208
* Renault Clio
* Subaru BRZ
* Toyota GT86
* Volkswagen Golf
* Volvo V40.br />
The election will take place for the second time within the framework of the Geneva International Motor Show at the Palexpo Conference Centre on March 4th.
