Autotage Berlin from 24 to 27 November 2016
A concentrated display of 21 car makes, the latest car automotive technology and the ’Avus’ as a test circuit
From Thursday, 24 to Sunday, 27 November 2016, daily from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., Autotage Berlin will be taking place for the second time parallel with BOAT & FUN BERLIN. In Hall 1 over 100 car dealers will be exhibiting 21 car makes and a total of 220 cars. This year’s newcomers are Mercedes-Benz with the Smart car, BMW with the Mini, Opel and Skoda. Tesla will be exhibiting its models for the first time. Five of the 21 car makes represented will be displaying electric vehicles: Tesla, BMW, Mercedes, Audi and VW. Visitors to the exhibition, which covers more than 6,000 square metres, will be able to obtain a broad overview of current models. This is a significant advantage for potential buyers who have little time to look for new cars but would like to compare them directly. All the carmakers will be displaying vehicles capable of pulling loads, while their models will also cover every category from small cars to high-powered dream cars.
More than 100 vehicles will be available to visitors for testing on the Berlin motorway stretch known as the ’Avus’, includng electric cars. Expert promotional staff will accompany drivers on this stretch covering approximately 12 kilometres and lasting about 15 minutes.
Visitors taking part in a safety and proficiency course held by the German car club ADAC on the Berlin Exhibition Grounds during Autotage Berlin will receive professional training showing how to test a vehicle’s limits and will learn driving techniques enabling them to cope with extreme situations.
Autotage Berlin gives visitors an opportunity to find out about and test drive the latest in automobile technology. Thus the VW Tiguan with its ‘Trailer Assist’ feature makes it possible for drivers to let the car manoeuvre semi-independently in reverse with a boat trailer in tow, for example, which makes this exercise child’s play. With ‘Active City Stop’ and its parking assistant Ford will be showcasing two features which visitors will be able to test live on a special area.
Parallel with the GALA NIGHT OF THE BOATS the LONG NIGHT OF THE AUTOMOBILES will be taking place from 6 to 10 p.m. on 23 November 2016.
Access to Autotage Berlin is via the South Entrance. Tickets to BOAT & FUN BERLIN are also valid for Autotage Berlin.
