Prince Michael of Kent says show will come back after eight-year hiatus

While the number of British brands has dwindled since the fall of British Leyland, automotive production in England is quite healthy. Just like the industry itself, the London Motor Show is set to return after being off the schedule for what will be eight years.

Prince Michael of Kent, while attending the annual Guide of Motoring Writers awards event, said the London Motor Show would return for 2016, though it would not take place in a traditional convention centre.

“I am delighted to tell you all that there are firm plans to bring the British motor show back in 2016 in Battersea Park,” he said.

“It is right that London should have a motor show that ranks alongside those of Frankfurt and Geneva,” the prince continued, alluding to the scale of the show.

The show is expected to be set for the month of May.
