The 2018 Motor Show produced a number of highly saleable new SUV models, an all-new, seventh-generation BMW 3 Series, and public debuts for the electric responses from Mercedes and Audi to the success of Tesla’s Model 3 and Jaguar‘s I-Pace.
DS, the luxury brand of PSA group, showed its 3 Crossback, the first application of the platform that will eventually carry the new Peugeot 208 and Vauxhall Corsa. They topped that by showing the DS 3 e-Tense, the battery-powered offshoot that uses the same platform and is on course to become the first-ever all-electric Vauxhall, wearing Corsa clothing, in less than two years’ time. Citroën's good-looking C5 Aircross concept was a plug-in hybrid model, due next year, while Peugeot took ‘concept of the show’ honours with its e-Legend concept, full of highly plausible connectivity.
The Audi e-Tron and the Mercedes EQC in the show signalled that the Tesla dominance era is over. The supercars of note were Ferrari’s twin V12 retro roadsters, SP-1 and SP-2.
The Motor Show is called Mondial de l'Auto in French. A biennial auto show, the Mondial de l'Automobile is the most visited motor show in the world, ahead of Tokio and Frankfurt, with 1.068.194 visitors in 2018.
The key figures of this spectacular show are: 125 000 m2 of exhibition, 8 pavilions, 260 brands from 18 countries, 65 world premieres, more than 10 000 test drives for electric and hybrid cars, more than 10 000 journalists from 103 countries.
Around 1894 twenty cars were in use in entire France.
In 1898, the French Automobile Club and industry pioneer, Albert de Dion, created Le Salon de l'automobile du cycle et des sports. The international motor show opened on the terrace of the Tuilleries Gardens. Before being admitted to this show the exhibitors had to prove their seriousness by driving their cars from Versailles to Paris. The French President, who opened this motor show, did not hesitate to expose his scepticism about the future of the automobile. He left the Tuilleries Gardens using a horse driven carriage.
In 1899, this motor show was recognized as the sole and the unique manifestation of its kind. It took place in the Tuileries Gardens. The automobile was looking for its future as no technique had succeded in imposing itself: neither the steam engine, nor the explosion engine, nor the electrical one. After 1910 it was held in Grand Palais near Champs-Elysees.
