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

This is for the first time that such a large number of big auto makers, which have a stake in Indian vehicle market, chose not to participate in India's biggest vehicle show Auto Expo which is held once in two years. "Out of the hybrid and electric vehicles, the later is much ahead and now it is for the government to decide whether it wants to back both the technologies of mobility or stick to just one". The 14th edition of the biennial Auto Expo is expected to see 24 new launches and over 100 unveiling of vehicles.

The Tamo RaceMo was first showcased by the Tata Motors at the 2017 Geneva motor show.

It also showcased a new electric vehicle drivetrain MESMA (Mahindra Electric Scalable Modular Architecture) and Atom, a last-mile mobility vehicle. Renault claims to sell 25% of all electric vehicles in Europe, but it has yet to launch one in India.

Going by Tata's past concepts such as the Nexon, we can expect the production-spec model to retain most of the elements of the flashy 45X concept. It is a premium 160cc motorcycle that has been showcased at Auto Expo 2018.

Tata Motors' platform was built around the theme of "Smart Mobility, Smart Cities" and they showcased an electric version of its compact sedan Tigor, which is a fully electric bus.

On the other hand, the Electric version of Tamo RaceMo comes with a 150kW electric motor that can generate up to 203hp.

Separately, Kia'a President Han-Woo Park told reporters at the event that the carmaker would focus on launching SUVs and hatchbacks in India and was also looking at introducing a compact electric vehicle.

Electricity supply isn't always reliable - or even available - and charging stations are still few and far between.

It also showcased the concept of TUV Stinger, a convertible SUV.

The bookings will start mid-February and deliveries will be done as early as mid August. The Emflux One will be priced between Rs. 5.5 - 6 lakh when it is launched.

Apart from various launches and the unveiling of new products by various two-wheeler makers, the first pre-open day of the Auto Expo 2018 saw the official entry of Kawasaki into the Indian market. The mill is tuned to develop 13.6bhp at 8500rpm and 13.9Nm of peak torque at 6000rpm mated to a five-speed gearbox. Hyundai i20 (2018) Petrol starts from Rs 5.34 lakh (ex-Delhi). The company will also launch the new third-generation Swift.

Hero Electric also unveiled eight of its global products in India, at the expo and the company said it planned to launch these products in a phased manner.
