Vancouver International Auto Show 2018 March 28 – April 1 (West Building)
Welcome to the 98th annual Vancouver International Auto Show at the Vancouver Convention Centre. We’re pleased to share Western Canada’s biggest celebration of the automobile with you!
For the first time in the show’s history, we have taken over the entire Vancouver Convention Centre West on two levels! We encourage you to explore our entire footprint over both floors and enjoy some of the new additions like added seating areas, enhanced food and beverage stations as well increased, cool vehicle displays from over 40 manufacturers and fantastic commercial vendors all with our new expansion.
The 2018 Vancouver International Auto Show offers something for everyone – from ground-breaking concept cars, to unique custom vehicles and hundreds of top automotive products and services celebrating British Columbians’ love of our cars and trucks
The Auto Show lives up to a tradition of showcasing a wide selection of luxury vehicles, in a city that sees the highest per capita sales of luxury vehicles in North America. Our coveted Exotics and Supercar display always excites and we are pleased this year to have top displays from Ferrari, Maserati, McLaren, Porsche, Rolls Royce, Bentley, Lotus and other top luxury brands. Be sure to check out the Lamborghini Urus, for its first major public viewing in Vancouver.
Test Drive an EV!
Join us for our test drives of the latest electric vehicles (EVs). With many manufacturers making EVs a priority, there are now over 25 vehicle options for environmentally-conscious consumers in B.C. Take a drive in one of these silent machines at the Electric Vehicle Experience Test Drive (EVE), presented by the CEVforBC™ Program, located on the lower level Exhibitor Hall or at the Toyota Lexus Hybrid Test Drives located at the Thurlow Entrance. Learn more about the incentives available via the province’s CEVforBC™ program, which provides British Columbians with purchase incentives for qualifying new battery electric, fuel-cell electric, and plug-in hybrid electric vehicles.
Win A New Car
If you’re in the market for a commuter car, a family-sized SUV, or a truck to get you and your family where you need to go, there will be no shortage of options on display. The best thing about the Auto Show is the opportunity to sit in the vehicles and speak with manufacturer representatives in a non-sales, no-pressure, hassle free environment. Try your shot at winning a vehicle too! Courtesy of BC’s Chevrolet dealers, the Auto Show is giving away an electrifying Grand Prize, a 2018 Chevrolet Bolt EV. Enter onsite during the Show Week or online here.
