Test drives now have 72 vehicles and 13 exhibitors

Tesla has joined the companies represented at the IAA. The US electric car maker thus underscores the international significance of the IAA and the new alignment of its activities. With 13 exhibitors and 72 vehicles being presented, the test drives at the IAA Experience now have their full complement of participating firms.

The test drives on the west open-air site (F10) give visitors a first-hand experience of the latest mobility trends. Firms such as Ford, Honda, Hyundai, Jaguar, KIA, Renault/Dacia, Volkswagen and Ionity are inviting IAA visitors to try out the latest developments for themselves and to drive the new models. In addition, a self-driving shuttle bus from Continental will carry visitors across a section of the IAA grounds.

The IAA is Europe’s leading platform for mobility, and from September 12 to 22 it will invite families, trade visitors, (e)-mobility experts and anyone with an interest to experience the future of mobility right here and now. The IAA Experience will bring a broad range of different experiences to the trade fair grounds, for example an E-Move track for e-bikes and e-scooters, a self-driving shuttle bus, an outdoor circuit and the Kids World. The IAA’s four pillars – the IAA Experience, the IAA Conference, the IAA Exhibition and the IAA Career – will provide a wide variety of options for interaction.
