Come wander 96,000 m2 dedicated to the vehicles of today and tomorrow, and don’t miss the exhibition on the theme of “The Automobile and Fashion”!

The Paris Motor Show, a can’t-miss appointment since 1898

The first Paris motor show was first held in the Tuileries Gardens in 1898, at the initiative of the Automobile Club de France. At the time, the big car makers like Peugeot, Benz or Daimler were able to exhibit hundreds of models after proving that their cars were able to make a round trip from Paris to Versailles.
In 1901, the show was a real success, and would continue to grow over the years, so much so that it has had to change locations several times. Starting in 1976, the Paris Motor Show has been held every other year (even-numbered years).
