It also displayed six electric vehicles, three in the commercial vehicle segment-the 2m electric bus, Magic EV, and Iris EV-and the Tiago EV, Tigor EV, and Racemo EV in the passenger auto category.

The primary factor distinguishing this year's expo will be the kind of technology on display.

Tata Motors will put on display its new H5 5-7 seater SUV vehicle based on the Land Rover Discovery Sport model at the Auto Expo beginning in nearby Greater Noida on Wednesday.

Kia on it's official India debut revealed its grand plans. From public transport to personal cars, from last mile connectivity to BRTS, from emergency response vehicles to commercial utility vehicles, from green and sustainable solutions to vehicles created to amplify the thrill of the drive - Tata Motors has a product portfolio to connect the aspirations and needs of its discerning customers.

The company said the vehicle boasts a range of over 140 km on a single charge, and optional fast charging which can extend its range by 80 per cent in less than an hour.

It may also be that Maruti replaces this auto with its entry-level hatchback Alto. Here are five cool bikes and cars that are being showcased at the expo.

The company also lifted cover on its South Korean arm SsangYong's G4 Rexton SUV, which will be launched in the Indian market later this year under the Mahindra badging. Alongside, there were a bevy of concepts on offer from the 22 exhibitors who unveiled 65 products with 14 fresh launches on day one, most of which were about two or three years away from making their way on to the road. In a way, this could be seen as a sign of the future path that the Indian automotive industry is aiming for: electric and hybrid vehicles.

The Suzuki Burgman Street comes with LED Headlamps which is now becoming common among the premium automatic scooters.

"Supported by a populist Union budget, sales in 2018 are expected to grow in the early double-digits on the back of a stable policy environment as the government has realized that disruptions such as demonetization do not help the economy. It is an answer to concerns of congestion and emission", Mr Ayukawa said, adding that compact needs a fresh design language, one that is bold, confident and dynamic.
