Engie, Netflix… The Motor Show 2022, an even bigger car show!
The car world? For real? The next Paris Motor Show, to be held from October 17 to 23 (from 9:30 a.m. to 10:30 p.m.), will only welcome “fifty cars”, acknowledges Serge Gachot, its director. It’s true that hardly a dozen real car brands will be present at the Porte de Versailles. Among the “big ones” only Renault and its brands Dacia, Alpine, Mobilize, Peugeot, DS, Jeep make the trip on the Stellantis side! And that’s it. Mercedes, which until recently had been negotiating with the organizers for an outdoor stand, will finally exhibit separately in the Rodin Museum near Les Invalides. Leave the Germans, Japanese, Koreans… and French Citroën. But “we’ll still try to organize a big car party,” assured Frédéric Bedin, president of events specialist Hopscotch, this Tuesday, September 20, during a round table with the press.
The world will try to compensate for the absenteeism with the arrival of previously unknown car brands such as Vietnamese Vinfast, Chinese BYD, Ora and Wey (Great Wall Group), Seres. In addition, “nine kart brands will have their stand,” says Serge Gachot, who also relies on the presence of young engines such as the French hydrogen vehicle specialists Hopium and Nam X, very, very far from real production and very uncertain about the future.
