Transitions Exhibition featuring an autonomous Range Rover and concept hydrogen powered car.


This exhibition explored the technologies that, even now, are bringing our cars into the future, and speculated on what their endpoint will be…

We are in the middle of a period of radical change. The car has shaped our world for the better but also the worse. As the motor industry strives to find cleaner, safer and more efficient ways to get us around, what does it mean for our cars?

We can already see how quickly cars are shifting. Fobs, keypads, push buttons, and smartphones have been steadily replacing the familiar key turn. Internal combustion engines are slowly being replaced with electric motors and drivers are being replaced with autonomous controls. What will the car become in the future, and how will the industry take us there?

We've inspired curiosity about the future of the car in past exhibitions, but this brand-new exhibition brought a fresh perspective, delving into the practical thoughts and ideas surrounding these new technologies. Visitors left the exhibition with a greater insight into the direction car engineering will take in the years to come, and how this will affect our day-to-day lives.

The energy section of the Transitions Exhibition, designed to explain energy density

We used a combination of cars and interactive stations to illustrate areas of future development, such as how cars will be powered, their impact, the materials they use and alternative methods of control. We displayed a number of cars, including a hydrogen-powered Riversimple Rasa and a sectioned Nissan Leaf, alongside interactive elements which allowed, for example, comparisons between different technologies. All of these combined for an immersive exploration of the next generation of motoring icons. 

Transitions: The Impact of Innovation was open in the exhibition space from 15 July 2023 until 15 April 2024
