  • Kia makes India debut with all guns blazing

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.

"That, perhaps, is the biggest gap before electric vehicles can take off", Pawan Goenka, managing director of Mahindra & Mahindra, told CNN.

Auto Expo is considered biggest platform in India where vehicle companies show their line up for the year and create buzz in the market. Tata says the Racemo will do 0-100 kmph in under 6 seconds. However, considering the vehicle has been showcased again, we can be hopeful that the project is not dead yet.

Kia in April 2017 agreed to invest more than $1 billion to build a auto manufacturing plant in southern India with an annual production capacity of 300,000 units.

Longer range electric vehicles and lower battery costs are helping them gain more momentum among consumers, Sen added.

Ashok Leyland unveiled Circuit-S, an electric bus powered by a swappable smart battery.

Caitlin looked attractive in a strapless, princess style wedding gown, while John looked sharp in a black tuxedo. Ugh! Cops came, and so did the Fuller House star, after Cailtin called him and explained what happened.


But let's come back to the Tamo Racemo, for obvious reasons.

The new Tata Tamo Racemo Electric Vehicle looks a lot like the regular sportscar that it's based on. The most important performance update comes in the form of the 1.2-litre 3-cylinder petrol engine which boasts a turbocharger like in the Nexon.

It will also showcase a working model of next-generation hybrid technology that promises to bring down emissions, reduce dependence on fossil fuels and accelerate electrification of power trains in India. The Emflux One will be priced between Rs. 5.5 - 6 lakh when it is launched. The Racemo comes with a ground clearance of 165 mm and this is important as far as Indian road conditions are concerned but it will also come down to what the suspension setup is like on the auto and we'll know more when we get a chance to drive it.

TVS Motor Company launched Creon, a next-generation electric motor scooter; TVS Apache RTR 200 Fi Ethanol, an ethanol-powered motorcycle and TVS Zeppelin, a 220 cc futuristic motorcycle cruiser concept. The booking for the bikes has started at BMW Motorrads dealerships and the delivery will start by May this year. The mill is tuned to develop 13.6bhp at 8500rpm and 13.9Nm of peak torque at 6000rpm mated to a five-speed 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 Auto Expo 2018 will see global automakers locking horns to launch and showcase their best products to the world.
