British Motor Museum Unveils Exhibition Exploring the Impact of Innovation on Cars and Society

British Motor Museum New Exhibition

The British Motor Museum has once again captivated visitors with its latest exhibition titled "Transitions: The Impact of Innovation," which is set to run until the summer of 2024.

This thought-provoking showcase, opened by Kevin Timms, Chair of the Board of Trustees at the British Motor Industry Heritage Trust, delves into the technologies shaping the future of cars and examines their effects on our lives. The exhibition takes a comprehensive look at the developments in the motor industry as it strives to create cleaner, safer, and more efficient vehicles.

Building upon the curiosity sparked by its previous exhibition, 'The Car. The Future. Me' in 2019, the British Motor Museum aims to provide a fresh perspective on the practical aspects surrounding these new automotive technologies. By exploring areas such as power sources, environmental impact, materials, and alternative control methods, visitors will gain valuable insights into the future of car engineering and its implications for everyday life.



A compelling combination of classic cars and interactive stations form the centerpiece of the exhibition, showcasing various aspects of future development. Among the notable vehicles on display are the iconic 1922 Ford Model T, the hydrogen-powered Riversimple Rasa, a sectioned Nissan Leaf electric car, and a 2016 Range Rover Sport autonomous test vehicle. Each car represents a significant milestone in the evolution of automobiles, from the mass production of the first automobile to a functioning vehicle powered by hydrogen fuel cells.

To enhance the visitor experience, the exhibition offers a range of interactive elements that encourage comparisons between different technologies. Visitors can explore the energy density of various fuels or even test their trust in autonomous cars through a simulator, providing a glimpse into the potential future of transportation.



As visitors journey through the exhibition, they will encounter a display case featuring obsolete motoring-related objects, serving as a reminder of the rapid pace at which technology advances. Additionally, a collection of alternative materials for car interiors, including unconventional options like fruit peel leather seats, sparks imagination and invites reflection on the possibilities for future automotive design. Armed with newfound knowledge, visitors will be encouraged to envision their ideal car of the future, considering the key elements of Energy, Control, Impact, and Materials.

Stephen Laing, Head of Collections at the British Motor Museum, expressed his enthusiasm for the exhibition, stating, "We're delighted to open this fascinating new exhibition. We are in a period of radical change and can see how quickly cars are shifting. Transitions looks at what the car will become in the future and how the industry will take us there."
