For better functioning 2 faculty member from mechanical engineering Dept. Mr. Goutam Arora & Mr. Gourve Goyal had accompanied the students.

The first ever Indian Auto expo took place in the year 1986 and was a more of a window of technical knowledge transfer as it exhibited how the automaker were absorbing newer technologies and permoting home grown research and development to adopt technology that suited the rugged Indian condition. The first expo was held at pragati maidaan new Delhi by the association of Indian automobile manufacturers and auto component manufacturer association of india.

Auto-Expo 2020  was organized during 8-12 February, 2020 at India Expo Mart, Greater Noida,. There were Electric Vehicles showcased in this edition of the Auto-Expo. The Auto Expo has conventionally been one of the most pursued platforms for the automobile industry in India and with the continued success of the show, it has gained a global thrust giving the participating brands a worldwide exposure. Auto Expo – The Motor Show 2020 is aimed at celebrating the industry’s biggest automotive event offering an opportunity to the Industry and visitors to Co-Create, Co-Exist and Celebrate.

Nearly 50 electric and hybrid vehicles had been displayed at Auto-Expo 2020. Most of these vehicles were working models that are two or three years away from making their way on to the road, unlike in other auto shows where electric vehicles are seen largely in concept forms. These products will also be relevant to India, with a majority of them positioned in the affordable segment. While they were skeptic initially, the automobile industry has now taken seriously the government’s direction on electric-mobility, that a majority of new vehicles on the roads should be electric-powered by 2030 to reduce vehicular pollution and cut the bill on crude oil imports.

The visit was very interesting and amazing. The motor show was focused towards new technological innovation in the auto industry. This edition aims at creating good experience for visitors by resurrecting a new brand image which was not only focus on static display of motor vehicle but was focused on a entire mobility eco-system  enveloped by the theme of eco-create co exist and celeberate.
