New models to be exposed in Paris

The Paris Motor Show next month is promising to be every bit as exciting as it has been in the past. The show will be held at the Paris Expo centre at the Porte de Versailles and will be the setting for a few world premiers.

New Lamborghini reveal

Widely awaited is the unveiling of the new Lamborghini. The Italian luxury car manufacturer is certainly keeping the motoring world on tenterhooks as it has only just revealed the first of six images that it is feeding to the press over the next few weeks. The image has the header ‘Discover the way to the future of supersports cars’ which may or may not have lost something in the translation. Whatever, all will be revealed on October the 2nd. Another ‘supersports’ manufacturer, Lotus, are reported to be unveiling two front engine hybrids at the show, one a four door hatchback and the other being the more traditional Lotus offering a two door coupé.

Another vehicle to be launched upon the public at the show and one that will bring in a slightly smaller motor insurance quote is the Hyundai ix20. The Korean manufacturer has also fed a little taster to the public in the way of an image as well, although it must said the sketch of the ix20 is nowhere near as mysterious as the Lamborghini offering.

Impressive showing for MPVs

It promises to be quite a show for Multi Purpose Vehicles (MPV’s). Alongside the Hyundai ix20, which was designed in Germany and goes on sale almost immediately after the show, Chevrolet launch the Orlando MPV and Toyota will be in their fighting with their latest version of a mini MPV, the Verso-S. The real show-stopper, however, in the MPV section could be Peugeot’s offering, the 3008 MPV that will be the world’s first diesel hybrid offering fuel economy at 3.8 litres per 100 km.

Other cars to be launched at the show will be the Chevrolet Cruze, the American manufacturers first attempt at a hatchback in the Cruze range, and Renault will be presenting their new version of the Laguna.

The show launches on October the 2nd and runs until October the 17th. Opening times are 10am to 8pm with late night opening on Thursdays extended to 10pm. Admittance charges are 12 Euros for adults, half price for 10-18 year olds with under tens getting in free.
