PARIS – This year’s Paris auto show will look very different than the one that was last held in 2018. For one, it is being combined with the Equip’Auto exhibition of aftermarket supplies, in an effort to offer a broader experience for industry attendees. And there will be very few automakers showing their latest and greatest production and concept vehicles.
Despite that, Paris remains an important venue for a number of brands, some established and some hopeful of breaking into the European market. Renault, Dacia, DS and Peugeot will be there, as will Jeep. Several ambitious Asian companies, China’s BYD and Great Wall, and Vietnam’s Vinfast, will also be exhibitors. EV startup Fisker will show the Ocean SUV. And Mercedes-Benz will reveal a new model in Paris – but not as an official exhibitor.
The show at the Paris Expo center starts with a media day on Oct. 17, opens to the public the next day and runs until Oct. 23.
Here is a look at the brands that are set to be at the show:
