PARIS -- This year’s Paris auto show looks very different than the one that was last held in 2018. For one, it has been combined with the Equip’Auto exhibition of aftermarket supplies, in an effort to offer a broader experience for industry attendees. And there are 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. Alpine, Dacia, DS, Jeep, Peugeot and Renault are here, as is Renault Group's mobility brand Mobilize.
Several ambitious Asian companies, China’s BYD and Great Wall, and Vietnam’s Vinfast, are also here. EV startup Fisker is showing the Ocean SUV. And Mercedes-Benz revealed a new model in Paris -- the EQE SUV -- but not as an official exhibitor.
The show at the Paris Expo center starts Monday with a media day and opens to the public Tuesday, running until Oct. 23.
Here is a look at the brands at the show:
