FCA's Keeping Fiat, Alfa Romeo, Jeep Out Of Paris Show

2018 Paris Motor Show

And these are just the latest to pull out of the European expo.

Could auto shows being going the way of the dodo? If the recent exodus from Paris is any indication, they very well could be. And now another automaker is reportedly sitting it out. According to Auto Plus in France (brought to our attention by our friends at Motor1), Fiat Chrysler is keeping three of its major brands away from this year's Paris Motor Show: namely Fiat, Alfa Romeo, and Jeep. And those are the group's main brands in the European market.

Neither Dodge nor Chrysler compete in the European market any more, and Lancia is effectively a non-entity. Maserati is still expected to participate, however, as is Ferrari (which is no longer technically part of the FCA group). Fiat Chrysler Automobiles isn't the only major automaker pulling its brands from the European expo. The Volkswagen and Lamborghini brands are also expected to be sitting this one out, though other brands under the VW umbrella, including Audi and Porsche, will still be in attendance. Other automakers already anticipated to skip the festivities in the City of Lights include Ford, Infiniti, Mazda, Mitsubishi, Nissan, Opel, Subaru, and Volvo.

Though at this rate, we can't help but wonder which might be the next major automaker to pull out of this show, or others, in the near future.
