Despite some manufacturers giving the Expo a miss, there will still be plenty of action.

The curtain has finally lifted for the mega show that all car lovers in India are waiting for.

Electric vehicles and concepts along with some exciting launches from Maruti, Hyundai, Mahindra & Mahindra and Tata Motors pack the halls of the Expo Mart in Greater Noida from February 9 to 14. February 7 is for the media, and the 8th is reserved for the media and VIPs.

 

While Kia Motors will make its official debut at the Expo, luxury car-makers and arch-rivals Mercedes-Benz and BMW will make you drool with their launches.

Rajesh Karkera and Hitesh Harisinghani of Rediff.com bring you all the excitement from the venue on Tuesday, ahead of the opening.
