200 new cars at London Motorexpo

More than 200 new cars are set to be displayed at this year's London Motorexpo.

The week-long summer motor show, held annually in Canary Wharf, is set to feature a record number of manufacturers this year including Bentley, BMW, Jaguar, Mini, Nissan, Saab, Skoda and Volkswagen.

Visitors to the event will have a chance to explore the diverse range of vehicles on display and get behind the wheel of some of the latest cars including green vehicles such as the new Vauxhall Ampera, the Mitsubishi i-MiEV and Tesla Roadster.

The Land Rover Experience section at the show will give motor enthusiasts a chance to try out the brand's latest models on the manufacturer's man-made off-road and ice-driving courses.

Show organisers are expecting more than 400,000 visitors to attend the free automotive event, which is scheduled to be run between June 6 and June 11 daily from 10am to 6pm, and on June 12 from 11am to 5pm.
