Following Jaguar Land Rover and Mini's announcements they would not display cars at the 2016 Detroit Auto Show, Automotive News reported Thursday Tesla will also not have its cars on the show floor, as it has in previous years.

JLR said last month it would miss Detroit this year, and representatives from Mini confirmed this week the brand would skip both the Detroit and Geneva motor shows.

A spokesman for the Detroit show told AN that Mini and Tesla declined to participate in Detroit because their vehicle introductions did not align with the show's timing. Tesla, however, has the new Model X to show, along with all of the Autopilot technology introduced on the Model S recently.

But then Tesla doesn't do the auto show circuit often, typically sitting out all but the largest ones. Michigan and Tesla have also had a relationship as chilly as Detroit in January over the direct sales model the company uses. In any case, the Motor City will welcome back Aston Martin, which is a win for those who prefer their luxury cars with V12s.
