Mondial de l'Automobile

The Paris Motor Show (Mondial de l'Automobile) is a biennial auto show hosted in Paris, France. Held around October, it is one of the most important auto shows, often with many new production automobile and concept car debuts. The show is considered to be the first motor show in the world, started in 1898 by industry pioneer, Albert de Dion. 

The show presently takes place in Paris Expo at the Porte de Versailles. The Mondial is scheduled by the Organisation Internationale des Constructeurs d'Automobiles.

The Paris Motor Show is a lively show where each visitor can become an active participant. Therefore this year, once again, the Show is equipped with a large EDF track for electric and hybrid vehicles in pavilion 2/1, in partnership with RTL2 (11,000 m2).

The test drives are placed on the track inside pavilion 2/1, allowing the vehicles to be tested in real conditions. After a 400m indoor circuit where the visitor may sit as a passenger and a few recommendations from the instructor, the test drive takes place within the exhibition park (1km100) followed by a city circuit of about 2km within Paris.
