Paris auto show: 120 years of automobile innovation

Paris in 1898 was a Silicon Valley of automobile engineering. Several manufacturers were developing cars that were gradually becoming a status symbol, and the city’s automobile club decided to put up an exhibition to show the latest innovations.To make sure that all participating automobile were worth the label, they had to demonstrate that they could traverse the route from Paris to Versailles in the presence of a curator.From the first Paris auto show at the Tuileries gardens, that welcomed 140,000 visitors, the exhibition has grown to an international event with 1.4 million visitors.

It was also in 1898 when the Renault brothers sold their first car. Renault, along with industry giants Peugeot and Citroen, remains one of the biggest employers in France. The salon was a boon to the French automobile industry, the fourth largest in the world from the end of World War 2 until 2000. At present, it accounts for 7 percent of jobs in the industrial sector.
