Honda X-Blade unveiled at Auto Expo 2018, launch confirmed in March

Kia makes India debut with all guns blazing

Almost 50 electric and hybrid vehicles will be unveiled at Auto Expo 2018 that starts in Greater Noida this week, in what will be an affirmation of automakers' commitment to India's ambitious goal on electric mobility. M&M Managing Director said the company has already invested Rs 6 billion on its electric vehicle (EV) programme and has committed another Rs 7 billion in the next 2-3 years on it. "The Indian government has expressed its desire to move in that direction", he told CNN at the Auto Expo near New Delhi. Tata says the Racemo will do 0-100 kmph in under 6 seconds.

French auto manufacturer Renault showcased its mini electric vehicle ZOE and the TREZOR, a two-seater electric supercar.

Mercedes-Benz kick-started its product offensive with the launch of Mercedes-Maybach S 650 and showcased the unique E-Class All-Terrain and the futuristic Concept of EQ.

The combination of hurdles means that electric vehicles are still a drop in the ocean for India's automotive market, now the world's fifth largest and forecast to become the third biggest - behind the USA and China - by 2020. But what makes it special this time, is the unveiling of an electric version as well.

On the other hand, the Electric version of Tamo RaceMo comes with a 150kW electric motor that can generate up to 203hp. There are also scissor doors, which looks pretty retro and works really well with the overall design of the vehicle.

Besides, Lohia Auto launched diesel-driven three-wheeler loader Humsafar 2000 and passenger vehicle Humsafar DLX priced at Rs 1.95 lakh and Rs 1.90 lakh respectively. Besides paying for a place at the Expo, vehicle companies also have to bear cost of setting up venues, models and security among others. It also showcased the "45X concept" the premium hatchback based on the versatile "Agile Light Flexible Advanced" Architecture.

The Indian automobile industry on Wednesday showcased its vision for an all-encompassing electric-powered transport solutions at the pre-open day of the Auto Expo 2018.

The bookings will start mid-February and deliveries will be done as early as mid August. Talking about its specifications, Renegade Thor generates 30 kW power with 70 nm torque and is equipped with 5-speed transmission gearbox.

The company has priced Comfort E Auto HS at Rs 1.49 lakh (ex showroom Delhi) and comes with facilities such as central locking and Global Positioning System. The 14th edition of the largest automobile event will see global automakers gearing up to showcase their best products to the world.
