For the car manufacturers, a trade fair as the Paris Motor Show is first of all a showcase of their know-how. More than a commercial meeting with the general public, the show is the opportunity to present to the whole world the new models but also the developed technologies, and everything that is made in terms of brand image. Thus, the show often reveals prototypes, concept cars and vehicles which participated in car-racing competitions.

From design to power, from elegance to sport, the automobile investigates all the paths and it is sometimes difficult to choose. The show is the ideal moment to meet professionals, be advised, compared and maybe, leave the trade fair with keys!

Today, the show counts 247 registered brands, coming from 19 countries, with a surface divided into four detached pavillons. Numerous world premieres are expected by the French and foreign manufacturers.

Manufacturers like Dangel, PGO, and Subaru etc. will be returning for the 2012 event and new arrivals such as McLaren, Mia Electric will be featured for the first time, making this year’s show a not to be missed!

The 2012 Paris Motor Show dedicates a new whole hall to the new energies (Concept-cars, hybrid cars, biofuels, electric motor cars, a very wide and diversified range of vehicles will be presented to the visitors show). A test track of battery-driven and hybrid vehicles allows you to try the vehicles of tomorrow. You will also find an exhibition in partnership with the Ina ” the Automobile and the Advertising”
