Meanwhile, over 11,000 test drives took place at the event, with particular highlights proving to be the EDF electric vehicle trial track and the BNP Paribas eco-driving circuit.

"The show enjoyed bumper media coverage all over the world, with over 13,000 journalists from 103 countries, over 120 hours of TV and radio reports in France and over five million hits on the show website," the organisers stated.
