Note thatit can already be pre-booked in France. The range starts at €41,900, excluding the ecological bonus.
Another Chinese manufacturer will be present at the World Cup: Great Wall. The brand is not new to the Parisian event. She made an appearance there in 2006, alongside Landwind, in the hope of showering Europe with its models. 16 years later, the manufacturer is back with its Ora Cat electric compact.
Over the months, the young French brand Hopium – founded by the equally young driver Olivier Lombard – unveils its automotive project. On the menu : a large sports sedan called Machina. It is powered by a 500 hp hydrogen engine and is said to be able to travel 1,000 km. The Tesla Model S better watch out! The first 1,000 copies have already been reserved. Other order forms could be signed at the Paris World Cup.
Another young tricolor shoot will honor visitors with its presence at the Mondial de Paris. This is NamX. This company has just presented an SUV designed in collaboration with Pininfarina. Beyond the style, the originality lies in the fact that the HUV (its small name) is equipped with a hydrogen tank as well as removable capsules to increase their independence. Its launch is scheduled for 2025.
The flagship attraction for the manufacturer at Le Lion will of course be the new Peugeot 408. With its original bodywork, on the border between the SUV and the sedan, the crossover should be talked about. It’s a safe bet that the stand of the manufacturer with the lion is always full.
