Though there are also only a few automakers showing their greatest and latest concepts and production of vehicles, Paris is still an essential venue for several brands. Some have already established their spot in the European market, while some hope to enter it.
Alpine, Dacia, DS, Jeep, Peugeot, Renault, and its mobility brand Mobilize made their appearance. As well as Asian companies BYD, Great Wall Motors, and VinFast. Electric vehiclestartup Fisker shows its Ocean SUV.

The new Jeep Avenger, presented at the 2022 Paris Motor Show, will be the first all-electric Jeep when it is finally launched next year. It is the brand’s second small SUV/crossover segment, below the larger Renegade.
The automaker does not have a stand on the show. However, it unveiled its EQE SUV on Sunday at the Rodin Museum in Paris. It will be built in its US factory in Vance, Alabama, and will be exported to Europe.
Mobilize presents the Duo. It is an electric quadricycle aimed at short-term rentals and urban users. It is one of four EVs designed for the brand, with the Bento (cargo version), Hippo (small van for ‘last mile’ deliveries), and Limo (for ride-hailing).
The company’s stand was focused on the Renault 4ever Trophy, a show car version of a small all-electric crossover, which will go into production in 2025.
The automaker has big aims for Europe, with retail sites planned to sell several all-electric models. The company plans to begin EV deliveries to customers in Europe and the US before the year ends.
