Peugeot's CEO Maxime Picat was one of several top auto executives just-auto interviewed at the Paris show

Interviews conducted at the Paris show have been published this week - chats with François Bancon at Infiniti and Maxim Picat at Peugeot (also here) and also more from Ford's Mark Fields.

I took our first look at the redesigned Ford Mondeo (Europe's Fusion) and rightsizing was a discussion topic at the European press launch.

BMW has assembled its first car - a flexfuel 3 series - in Brazil and appears to be ramping up the plant much as it did in India: start just with final assembly and add body welding and paint later.

We've taken a look at JCI's R&D and eyed the widening regulatory eye on diesel engine emissions.

Paris was not just about cars and we were also busy there talking to suppliers including Valeo on a variety of topics including autonomous driving.

Have a nice weekend.
