Auto Expo India - 2018, Delhi

Recommended Posts

The Auto Expo 2018 kicked off on 7th February with car makers and commercial vehicle manufacturers unveiling a slew of electric and hybrid vehicles, in line with the government’s aggressive target to electrify all new vehicles in the coming years ahead.

The thrust on electric vehicles was a unifying theme across the lineups.

 

In comparison to Auto Expo 2016, this year saw the number of EVs surge to over 50 electric and hybrid vehicles as car makers drew up plans for electrification of their fresh line-up of products.  

Volkswagen Group, Nissan India, Bajaj Auto, Royal Enfield and few others gave the Expo a miss. 
 

Here are a few highlights of the Auto Expo that I would want to share with all of you.

 

Kia's Indian debut to major car launch. South Korean automaker Kia Motors said it will introduce a range of vehicles, including an India-exclusive compact electric vehicle in the country between 2019 and 2021.

Introducing it's new SP concept and it just stole the show.

Thank you for sharing.
TATA motors and KIA are the crowd pullers.

My favourits are KIA SP and TATA H5X.
Hope there wont be any radical changes in the production versions.

Thanks a lot for the update @r413078. TATA motors sure has a great deal in India in the years coming ahead. Also, Renault concepts turned out to be impressive with their surfing theme. KIA's SP with definitely be a game changer while the pricing plays a great role during its launch in to the Indian market in 2019.

Feels good to see the Auto show having introduced a too many of the Electric cars by all the brands. This is the future of the Auto industry for the next 10 to 15 years :D
