The Geneva Motor Show is canceled – but on Saturday and Sunday, 22 garages in the city and region invite you to admire the innovations at the car show.
After a two-year break, the Autoshow Winterthur is back, and in its old size. 22 garages are showing over 2000 immediately available vehicles this Saturday and Sunday, April 9th and 10th. Because the Geneva Motor Show was canceled, it is probably the best opportunity to see new products and technical refinements for yourself.
The participating garage owners report that the demand for new cars has increased significantly. A major topic is alternative drive systems, from hybrids to purely electric vehicles – customers wanted comprehensive advice here, but also the opportunity to get their own impression.
Autographs, desserts and hand organs
Of course, the garage owners are not stingy – many organize a supporting program. On Saturday and Sunday from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. at the Franz garage, for example, the scout master handball players will be on site for autographs, a folk music trio will play at the Stadt-Garage Rimini, and Auto Härti will tempt you with various desserts. The website reveals what the others are planning www.autoshow-winterthur.ch.
