Auto Expo launch 2018 updates

Start-ups, electronic vehicle players and the firms entering India were at the forefront at the biennial Auto Expo 2018. "We are making a significant investment in EVs and will launch six new products in this segment", said N. Chandrasekaran, chairman, Tata Group, at the Auto Expo 2018. They're expected to segment leaders in terms of features on offer. For starters, the cars feature new bumpers with larger airdams and accentuated fog light enclosures apart from glossy black treatment for the grille. By 2050, all cars on the country's road will have zero emissions. There are also scissor doors, which looks pretty retro and works really well with the overall design of the vehicle.

French auto manufacturer Renault showcased its mini electric vehicle ZOE and the TREZOR, a two-seater electric supercar. Though the government subsequently denied this target in parliament, it is still widely touted. He said M&M would want the government to give emphasis on faster development of charging infrastructure for electric vehicles and support local manufacturing. The H5X SUV concept, which was also revealed at the Expo today, is based on the same styling philosophy as well. The company also lifted the cover on South Korean arm SsangYong's G4 Rexton SUV, which will be launched in the Indian market later this year under the Mahindra badge. Meanwhile, Honda Motorcycle and Scooter India unveiled a total of 11 two-wheelers, including a new 160 cc motorcycle, "X-Blade". Greaves Cotton announced the launch of 2 new power train solutions for last mile mobility.

The company plans to add a new CNG vertical and introduce new models of diesel and electric vehicles in the coming quarter, he added.

ATOM is a unique object of mobility created to cater to varied passenger needs with the ideal blend of 'Convenience, Comfort and Intelligence.' It aims to reimagine last-mile connectivity, thereby changing the face of public transportation, while its minimalist design philosophy allows it to retain a compact footprint without compromising on interior space. Transformation towards electric vehicles (EVs) is inevitable in India.

Powered by a lithium-ion battery, the electric three wheeler vehicle, which offers central locking and Global Positioning System, boasts a mileage of 80 km while running at speeds of up to 30 km per hour.

Kia will compete with market leader Maruti Suzuki India and Hyundai Motor Co, and its production plans will come as a boost for Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi's "Make in India" initiative.

This edition is unique as it would witness the participation of 29 two/three wheelers, 15 four wheelers, 9 commercial vehicle manufacturers; unveiling around 101 vehicles.

Three-wheeler brand, Lohia Auto will launch a number of e-vehicles at Auto Expo 2018.
