Paris is light on participants and world premieres, but it's a visual delight with wacky concepts that make the trip worthwhile. Here are some of this year's offerings.

DS X E-Tense

This is an electric car concept from the Citroen subbrand DS that needs to be seen to be believed: a two-seat asymmetrical electric sports car concept designed for the car buyer of the 2030s. The driver—which could be a robot—sits in an open pod on the left, swathed in blue, while the passenger sits on the other side of a barrier in a red cocoon. In addition to everything being off center, the lights form a spider web of illumination. Of course it has some form of gullwing doors.

This is an electric car concept with a notable omission: no roof. This two-seat convertible is a fun take on the Smart Fortwo. Smart is celebrating its 20th anniversary and reinventing itself as an electric-only brand.

Peugeot E-Legend

This autonomous electric coupe concept takes cues from the classic 504 Coupe from 1969 with squared-off lines, a sharklike nose, and Mustang-like three-bar taillights. The retro styling belies the futuristic interior filled with screens to watch movies and a retractable steering wheel unit with head-up display. The interior is wood and blue velvet with a rear bench seat resembling a couch from the '70s. The car has two electric motors for a manufacturer-estimated range of 370 miles and 0-62 time of 4.0 seconds.

Renault EZ-Ultimo

The greenhouse of this robocar is covered in a scale pattern that lets passengers see out but prevents anyone from seeing in. Despite its immense size, the EZ-Ultimo can accommodate three riders. This premium lounge also features a panoramic roof, wood paneling, and marble for riders to travel in style.

Renault EZ-Go

One end of this autonomous vehicle opens and forms a ramp to enter this strange robo-transport with an open floor area and wraparound seating.

Renault EZ-Pro

This tall robo-delivery vehicle has a single seat in front with a desk/work area, while the back can accommodate packages.
