Auto Expo 2018: Tamo Racemo debuts in India

Honda offers a Showcase bike X-Blade in Auto Expo 2018, Have a look…

TVS Motor on Wednesday unveiled its electric scooter concept Creon and a 220cc single-cylinder engine bike Zeppelin at the Auto Expo 2018.

Mahindra & Mahindra (M&M), which has also bagged orders for EVs from EESL, will showcase six new electric vehicles, including two futuristic concepts - a global aspirational SUV and a Stinger concept of one of the company's popular SUVs.

At the current edition of Auto Expo - The Motor Show, Tata Motors brought alive the government's vision of smart cities with "smart mobility, smart cities" and unveiled the all-new Tata Intra.

In his address at the inauguration of the Auto Expo 2018, Union Minister for Heavy Industries and Public Sector Enterprises Anant Geete said that the aim will be to have a growth-oriented, industry and consumer-friendly policy for the sector.

Most of these vehicles will be working models that are two or three years away from making their way on to the road, unlike in other auto shows where electric vehicles are seen largely in concept forms.

The Auto Expo has a launch and showcase of vehicles and Honda Motorcycle & Scooter India has its brand new X-Blade Showcase in the country. He further said the target is to sell 2,00,000 units worldwide by 2020 and it will be achieved by entering into new markets like India.

The Expo witnessed 65 unveilings and 14 launches, including Hyundai's new Elite i20, Mercedes' Maybach S650 priced at Rs 2.73 crore and the unveiling of Toyota's mid-sized sedan Yaris and Honda's all-new Amaze, SUV CR-V and premium sedan Civic that will make a comeback to the Indian market. The H5X SUV concept, which was also revealed at the Expo today, is based on the same styling philosophy as well. The Tiago EV and the Tigor EV draw power from an electric drive system developed and supplied by Electrica EV.

The Atom It is powered by Mahindra's new electric Powertrain which features batteries that can be swapped to extend the vehicle's range, allowing it to operate uninterrupted for long hours. Both these models are also scheduled to be launched in India in FY 2018-19.

Ashok Leyland launched its first electric bus, Circuit S, which offers seating facility for around 25 to 35 people. The automobile products accounted for 5.3 million of our global sales and India was a great contributor. It also unveiled two scooters - "Maestro Edge 125" and "Duet 125" - at the expo.

Maruti Suzuki is also building a plant to manufacture lithium ion batteries along with Japanese electronics firm Toshiba and auto parts manufacturer Denso.
