WANADA Chairman John Bowis and CEO John O’Donnell traveled earlier this month to the Paris Auto Show, one of the foremost events of its kind in the world. While there, Bowis and O’Donnell met with many high level OEM executives to promote the Washington Auto Show and its industry conference, MobilityTalks International. Bowis and O’Donnell also had a private dinner with Jason Stein, publisher of Automotive News.
OEMs introduced several new models in Paris and made announcements, such Honda’s announcement about its collaboration with General Motors to create an autonomous vehicle program. GAC, the Chinese OEM that is working toward a bigger presence in the West, had a prominent exhibit in Paris. It was GAC’s first time at the show, and they were the only Chinese OEM there.Download Bulletin PDF
