The 2008 Paris Motor Show took place from 4 October to 19 October 2008, in Paris expo Porte de Versailles.

This edition of the Paris Motor Show featured a high number of hybrid and electric vehicles (EVs), a tectonic shift that led a New York Times blogger to ask, "Who killed the non-electric cars?".[1]
