  • Le Salon de l’Auto 2002 de Bruxelles: “QI, QE et Eco”
    Le salon international de l’Auto de Bruxelles s’ouvre ce mercredi au Heysel à Bruxelles. Un salon exceptionnel, car c’est celui du centième anniversaire de cette manifestation à Bruxelles. En effet, c’est en 1902 que se tenait la première exposition automobile, au Parc du Centenaire, avec 82 exposants. Le hall était à l’époque trop grand pour cette manifestation. Aujourd’hui, le salon s’étend sur 80.000 m2 et attire plus de 750.000 visiteurs. Cette année, plus encore que par le passé, l’auto semble échapper aux tracas économiques. Le salon 2002 est en effet celui des autos et des moteurs intelligents, des voitures passions et des technologies de réduction de la pollution. QI, QE et Eco.
