Auto Expo launch 2018 updates

Kia makes India debut with all guns blazing

Notably, Tata Motors had won a major tender of 10,000 electric vehicles from the government-run Energy Efficiency Services Limited (EESL) previous year, however, the numbers were reduced due to a partial order being passed on to Mahindra.

An electric concept vehicle is seen at the Auto Expo 2018 in Greater Noida, Uttar Pradesh.

The company exhibited two concept cars-the H5X and 45X-based on its two-architecture strategy.

So, what are your views on the new Tata Tamo Racemo Electric Vehicle? The company is showcasing "smart mobility" as a concept in this season of the Auto Expo.

The company, on Wednesday, also showcased SsangYong Motor's new G4 Rexton, which will be launched in India with an all new brand name.

The homegrown auto major also registered a whopping 55% growth in its passenger vehicle sales in January 2018, and 38% growth in commercial vehicles in the same period. The 14th edition of the biennial Auto Expo is expected to see 24 new launches and over 100 unveiling of vehicles. "Mahindra's electric pavilion at the Auto Expo showcases our vision of the Future of Mobility - one that offers clean, connected and convenient vehicles to our customers in India and around the world". The first day of the event witnessed several Indian and global automobile companies joining the EV bandwagon, including Renault, Maruti Suzuki, Tata Motors, and Mahindra. The SUV will be ready to migrate to an electric form when required, and will also be engineered to meet Bharat Stage 6 (BS6) emission norms. It also unveiled aAnew compact Auto design "ConceptFutureS".
