Many automakers are choosing not to participate at important automotive shows across the globe, including Geneva, Paris, Frankfurt and Detroit.
Loire made it clear as to why they have taken this decision: “We have nothing new to present. We must also make choices, we were in Geneva and at shows dedicated to digital and new technologies”, said the Nissan official.
Nissan won’t be the only automaker dropping out from this year’s show in France, as Ford, Mazda and Volvo are reportedly taking a leave of absence.
However, the bi-annual event won’t miss out on important premieres, as the new BMW Z4 and X3 M, Peugeot 208, and two potential versions of the new 508 – the rumored range-topping model and five-door estate are all said to make their way to Paris. Other cars expected to join them are the new VW T-Cross, Audi E-Tron SUV and Renault Clio.
