The brainchild of Autocar India, the country’s leading automotive magazine, the show since its inception in 2005, has grown bigger and better with bigger brands participating and the crowd figures increasing exponentially. In fact, every year there is an increasing number of brands coming to the show and manufacturers have begun taking this show seriously by showing their best products and the quality of the stands are built to global standards. The number of visitors has been steadily increasing every year too, at an average of 16 percent. In fact, after the Auto Expo, this is the next biggest auto show in the country.
