Climb in, drive off, try them out: several brands will have numerous new models and premiered vehicles waiting for you to test drive them at the IAA.
Would you and your family or friends like to experience for yourselves the special features in the latest models and premiered vehicles? Do you want to open the roof to the glorious sunshine and zoom down the freeway in a hydrogen-powered car? Or would you rather visit the city in an economical electric vehicle that doesn’t compromise on power? Visitors to the IAA can do more than simply admire the latest vehicles from their favorite brands and pick up expert advice in dealers’ showrooms. At the IAA they can also take the object of their desire with the free-of-charge IAA Test Drive between 9 h and 19 h on the outdoor area of F10. Up to 50 models will be waiting to be put through their paces. The vehicles will range from hybrids and plug-in hybrids, electric vehicles and the latest fuel-cell cars all the way to models with highly efficient diesel and natural gas powertrains.
The vehicles available will include spacious family cars and city runabouts, along with station wagons and generous SUVs – including the brands Ford (Mondeo Hybrid and Explorer), Honda (CR-V Hybrid), Artega (Karolino), Renault, (Zoe), Dacia (Duster), Hyundai (Kona HEV, Kona EV, Nexo, Ioniq PHEV and Ioniq EV), Jaguar (I-Pace), KIA and Volkswagen (e-Golf). More participating brands and car models will be announced soon. For the IAA Test Drive you will need personal ID and a valid driver’s license. Please also note the exhibitors’ individual conditions. The registration takes place directly on the open space F10 in the containers of the exhibitors.
Both the freeway and exclusive test tracks in Frankfurt’s city center are right close to the IAA grounds, and enable drivers to test their chosen vehicles in all driving situations. On-board cameras will transmit your driving experiences live to a large screen for the spectators on the F10 open-air site. While that is happening, you will be accompanied by an expert to answer your questions and give you advice. So people thinking about buying a new car can use the opportunity to gain experience with their desired model during a test drive – or simply try out a car with one of the latest propulsion systems.
The exhibitor Ionity will allow you to try out rapid charging of electric vehicles at four charging points. And CrazyWorX, Panasonic Automotive and Wipro will demonstrate you how automated parking works.
