Paris Motor Show 2022: news round-up and all the cars

We round up everything that was on display at the 2022 Paris Motor Show, from the latest production cars to the craziest concepts

Paris Motor Show 2022 header

This year’s Paris Motor Show played host to some major Renault Group news with the introduction of three new Renault models, a concept car from Alpine, several new Mobilize vehicles and the latest from Dacia’s brand ‘transformation’. There was also news from Stellantis, with Jeep debuting two new cars.

The Paris Motor Show was the world’s first motor show when it was launched back in 1898. Since 1976, it has been held every two years, alternating with the similarly important Frankfurt Motor Show. With next year’s Geneva Motor Show now scheduled to take place in Qatar, many manufacturers travelled to Paris instead.

Scroll down for details on every new concept and production car at the 2022 Paris Motor Show.

Paris Motor Show 2022: manufacturer A-Z

Alpine

Alpine Alpenglow concept

So far, Alpine’s rejuvenation under Renault has spawned just the one car - the A110. We’re set for a Renault 5-based EV and a new fully-electric SUV in the coming years, but the 2022 Paris Motor Show saw the debut of its latest concept car. Called the Alpenglow, the French firm says it will “embody the future of its product and sports strategy”.

The A110 R was also in attendance, after a full debut at the Formula One Suzuka Grand Prix in Japan. The R model is more hardcore with seat harnesses and revised bodywork.

BYD

BYD will begin its European venture with three new electric cars. The Atto 3 crossover will act as a direct rival to the VW ID.3 and MG4, the Tang will be a seven-seat SUV and the Han will be a sleek saloon car. With UK deliveries of the Atto 3 expected before the end of the year, pricing should be announced in Paris.

The BYD Seal also broke cover at Paris and could also be coming to the UK. It's lighter than the Atto 3 and features an 82kWh battery.

Dacia

Dacia was at the Paris show, but the budget-focused brand didn't reveal any new production cars. Instead, we saw the brand's bold Manifesto concept as well as the final stage of its ‘new visual identity’, which has already seen its cars adopt a new badge. The Dacia stand also presented the firm's first electrified powertrain - to be used on a hybridised Jogger next year. 

DS

There were two new cars from DS at the motor show. The DS 7 facelift earlier this year was followed up by the updated DS 3 (which has lost its 'Crossback' name, just like its siblings). The 804bhp E-Tense Performance concept, which could make production as a track-only racer, was also on DS' show stand.

Fisker

Fisker Ocean - Paris

The Fisker Ocean will go on sale in the UK next year, with prices starting from £34,990. We've already seen it in the UK, debuting at the Goodwood Festival of Speed, but European customers were also able to see it up close in Paris. It'll be positioned as a rival to the Volvo XC40 Recharge, Tesla Model Y and Hyundai Ioniq 5 when it launches. 

Jeep

The upcoming Avenger will be Jeep’s first all-electric car, and the public were able to see it for the first time at the Paris show. It uses the Stellantis CMP platform seen on other small SUVs like the Vauxhall Mokka and Peugeot 2008 (e-CMP for the electric versions), while Jeep says the EV will be good for a 249-mile range.

The Grand Cherokee 4xe plug-in hybrid was also on Jeep's stand. As a flagship model for Jeep, the Grand Cherokee is designed to rival the likes of the BMW X7, Mercedes GLS and Land Rover Discovery. The Wagoneer S was also on display as the firm's pure-electric, luxury SUV. 

Mobilize

Mobilize Duo - Paris Motor Show

Mobilize, Renault’s ride-sharing brand, presented its plan for future vehicles - with the Duo taking centre stage. It’ll be sold on a subscription basis, designed mainly for urban transportation. The larger Mobilize Limo was also on show as a more upmarket ride-hailing vehicle. 

Peugeot

Peugeot 408 - front - Paris Motor Show

Peugeot calls the new 408 a 'dynamic fastback', which means it's a lifted saloon with a hatchback boot. Underpinning the 408 is something a little more familiar - the same CMP platform used on the 308 and plenty of other Stellantis products. Like the 308, we can expect to see a fully-electric e-408 variant in due course.

The recently upgraded e-208 was also in attendance. Although there were no exterior tweaks to make note of. 

Renault 

Renault 4Ever Trophy - front - Paris Motor Show

The new Renault 4 was previewed in Paris with the launch of the 4Ever Trophy concept. The production model will be positioned as a larger, more practical alternative to the upcoming 5; a more family-orientated hatchback with plenty of design references to the iconic original. Like the 5, it’ll feature a purely electric powertrain. While the production model was not been unveiled in Paris, the 4Ever Trophy concept gave plenty of hints of what it will look like.

The Renault 5 was at Paris too, although as a one-off concept rather than the eagerly-anticipated EV hatchback. Renault commented: “To conclude the year-long celebration of the 50th anniversary of Renault 5, the public will have the opportunity to discover a sporty and offbeat show car”. 

A new Kangoo E-Tech Electric van was on show, in passenger form only, while showgoers also had the chance to see the new Renault Austral E-Tech hybrid SUV - designed to take over from the outgoing Kadjar.

The Vision Scenic conceptHippie Caviar Motel camper and R5 Turbo 3E completed a packed Renault stand.
