2021 Motor Bella at M1 Concourse in Pontiac | By Sherry Trautman | Traveling Michigan


The Detroit Auto Show, formerly held at the TCF center (Cobo Hall) is cancelled and has been replaced by the 2021 MotorBella! 

Instead of a static vehicle show, the new Detroit Auto Show will be held at M1 Concourse in Pontiac, Michigan.

The motor show will be held completely outdoors so exhibitors can showcase up and coming hot vehicles and technology in an outdoor setting. This auto show in Detroit will be incredible!

  • You will also get to see the site's 1.5-mile track for exciting technology and vehicle demonstrations.


Planners are calling for 1.6 million square feet of dynamic vehicle and technology display areas with exciting terrain (always my favorite at the Detroit Auto Show).  This area will be freakin' awesome to demonstrate off-roading capabilities and other wow factors.

M1 Concourse also offers a 1.5-mile hot track that is perfect for technology and vehicle demonstrations.

What is the M1 Concourse? It is a champion motor speedway that is open to the public for racing events.

What will the Motor Bella event be like?

What will the Motor Bella event be like?  The goal of Motor Bella is to have a festival-like atmosphere that's completely outdoors! It's a unique automotive environment designed just for car enthusiasts!

Motor Bella is the perfect space for everyone to interact with vehicles in a fully dynamic and experiential format that is much more immersive than an indoor static display. It is definitely more exciting, for sure.

Event Chairman Doug North stated, "With our new program for 2021, we will take the Motor Bella concept to the next level with multiple brands and mobilities represented, from hometown to international nameplates, autonomous vehicles to high-performance supercars and everything in between."
