Automakers gathered on Thursday at the Paris Car Show hoping the huge Asian market will let them put crisis behind them as they premiere dozens of models and a bevy of electric cars ready to hit the road. More than 300 firms from across the world will be represented at the two-week exhibition that opens to the public from Saturday -- after two days of press previews and a visit on Friday by French President Nicolas Sarkozy.
