It’s not the only automaker no longer coming to the Motor City’s big show.
According to Automotive News and first reported by The Wall Street Journal, show planners are considering moving the show from January back to October.
By moving things back a few months to October, various outdoor events, like autonomous driving displays, can be scheduled and Detroit will also be the first major US car show of the year, following only Paris and Frankfurt, which alternate years.
If show planners do in fact decide to move the show to October, the earliest it’ll happen is 2020.
Switching to October will probably require parts of the contract to be renegotiated.
