The Delhi motor show, or Delhi Auto Expo as it’s better known is a yearly motor show held just outside India’s capital of New Delhi.
Sitting on over 70,000 square metres of hall space, the motor show features displays from over 1500 exhibitors that feature everything from components to supercars.
Each year the show sees almost 1 million people walk through its doors to see cars from domestics manufacturers Mahindra and Tata, along with premium brands like BMW, Jaguar and Land Rover (now both owned by Tata Motors) amongst others.
This year CarAdvice attended the motor show to see how it compared to other motor shows around the world. We were surprised to find a huge focus on commercial and personal mobility vehicles — like motorcycles and scooters.
With a national passenger car market of around three million vehicles per year, it pales in comparison to the 16 million plus two-wheeler sales, which dominate the Indian market.
Manufacturers also rely heavily on celebrity endorsements with massive Bollywood stars passing us on the show floor with hordes of security personnel.
