GM’s Autoshow in motion to San Francisco bay area

THOUSANDS OF SAN FRANCISCO AREA RESIDENTS TO EXPERIENCE GIANT “VEHICLE PLAYGROUND”

GM BRINGS AUTOSHOW IN MOTION TO TOWN WHERE ONE CAN TEST DRIVE TIL YOU DROP!

WHAT: More than 100 cars, trucks, and SUVs will be open, keys will be available and San Francisco area residents will be encouraged to take them for a test spin when General Motors brings AutoShow In Motion to Alameda Point.

AutoShow In Motion is a unique opportunity to literally test drive until you drop!

What’s more, consumers can take vehicles for a spin on real-life driving courses – even going over potholes and dirt.  GM not only offers up its own vehicles to test drive but brings out the competition like Mercedes, Toyota, and BMW, to create “one-stop shopping.”  But no salespeople are on-site, so the experience provides leisurely exploration at this FREE event.

VISUALS:      

 – Thousands of local residents experience an auto show “in motion”
–  Corvettes zip around a coned racecourse
–  Consumers drive HUMMER H2s over a giant dirt hill and sloped turns
–  Large and small SUVs and trucks are tested over road bumps
–  Luxury and mid-size cars cruise through windy coned courses
–  Special Chevrolet extended drive to put vehicles through a 15-minute street drive
–  Interview participants on the experience of “one-stop shopping” without pressure
–  A safety display warning against leaving children alone in vehicles shows how dangerously
hot the interior of a closed vehicle can become
Note: TV cameras may drive in the passenger seat of any vehicle and shoot POV b-roll.
