2014 Paris Motor Show from 4-19 October

Snapshot: The 2014 Paris Mondial De L'Automobile's theme is "Automobiles and Fashion" and the recently held press conference in New Delhi gave us a glimpse of what to expect in this year's motor show in France

The organizers of the 2014 Paris Motor Show held a press conference in New Delhi last week. This was their first conference in India and they would be now holding similar conferences in other parts of the world to promote the 2014 Paris Modial De L'Automobile with the theme "Automobiles and Fashion".

Mr. François Richier, French ambassador, looked quite enthusiastic about India's growth through the auto industry and was also happy that Renault's Duster was doing good in the country.  

According to Mr. Thierry Hesse, General Organizer, this was not just their first conference in India but also the first in a series of global press conferences to be held in the coming months. He said that the Paris Motor Show is the oldest car show in the world and the first one was held in 1898. Over the years this biennial show has witnessed more than 100 world premieres and this year would be no exception.      

The 2012 edition had a footfall of 12,31,416 visitors and more than 12,000 journalists from 103 countries covered the event. The organizers anticipate even more visitors this time and even the overall exhibition area has been increased to accommodate more participating companies this year.

The show will be all-encompassing where private cars, utility and company vehicles, second-hand cars, and even equipment, accessories, bodywork and other services providers would also be there. While Aston Martin and Tesla Motors (among several others) have confirmed particiption in this year's show, what's more interesting, in the Indian context, is that Hyundai and Volvo would be bringing in their all-new i20 and XC90, respectively. Plus, a competitor to the BMW 3-Series/Mercedes C-Class will be shown by Jaguar. 

Mr. Hesse added that this year's show will feature test drives of electric vehicles inside the premises and there would be a special hall dedicated to this year's theme of "Automobiles and Fashion". The exhibition sequence will follow the timeline of the great eras which have left their mark on the history of Automobiles and Fashion: pre-war (Haute Couture and Concours d’élégance), post-War (the Automobile dream), the Pop Art years, the Seventies and Eighties combining futuristic concept cars and legendary advertisements, up until our contemporary era marked by the boom of niches, eco-friendly design and customization.
