Buckle up, the 2019 Vancouver International Auto Show is revving up its engines and ready to roll into town. Next week, the Vancouver Convention Centre West is taken over by all things related to automobiles.
With more than 400 vehicles on display, and thousands of visitors coming to see what’s new and next in the auto industry, the Vancouver Auto Show is Western Canada’s best attended and one of North America’s premier shows. Whether you spend your visit reminiscing with the classic and collectible cars, dreaming about the vehicle debuts and concept cars planned for the market soon, or taking a EV test drive, the organizers of the 99th edition have plenty lined up for your experience. Here’s just a few of the vehicles to look out for this year.
