The H5X SUV concept displayed at the Auto Expo 2018 showed flaring wheel arches, slim headlights that merge into the front grille, and big fog lamps.

Maruti Suzuki has revealed that the company will be showcasing as much as 18 cars at the Auto Expo along with the new 2018 Swift. The Volkswagen Group, Nissan India, Bajaj Auto, Royal Enfield and few others will be giving the Expo a miss.

The country's largest carmaker unveiled the Concept Future S, which Maruti Suzuki says will redefine the compact vehicle design in the country.

Satoshi Uchida, Managing Director, Suzuki Motorcycle India said, "We had made a commitment to launch several new products every year". It will face competition from the likes of the Maruti Suzuki Brezza, Ford EcoSport, Tata Nexxon, and the Renault Duster.

The expo is co-organised by the Society of Indian Automobile Manufacturers (SIAM), Confedera-tion of Indian Industries and Auto Component Manufacturers Association of India.

Homegrown auto major Mahindra & Mahindra today unveiled six new electric concept vehicles and models as it showcased its strategy to shape the "Future of Mobility" at the Auto Expo here.

The company is looking to make 90-95% of manufacturing localized, he added. Also, watch this space for more on the new Burgman Street scooter. "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.

Tata Motors CEO Guenter Butschek believes that, if electric vehicles account for 20-25% of all registered vehicles in India by 2025, it could be considered a "splendid job". As India's EV pioneer, Mahindra showcased its widest range of electric vehicles, alongside mobility solutions and concepts from three-wheelers to buses. Park spoke about how Kia has plans to introduce 16 electric vehicles by 2025.

Officially, Kia is saying the SP Concept is designed specifically for the growing Indian market and will be the arrowhead of its arrival into the sub continent when it begins retail sales there in 2019.
