Ten global launches to set an Expo record

Though the 10th Auto Expo, which begins from Tuesday in the Capital, will not showcase a Nano-like innovation, which was the toast of the previous expo in 2008, the event will witness 10 global launches — the highest so far.

Topping the launches will be small and concept cars. However, sport utility vehicles (SUVs), along with super-bikes from Harley Davidson, some luxury sedans from the likes of Mercedes Benz, BMW India and Audi and a couple of hybrid cars, will be the other draws of the show.

On the eve of the Expo, General Motor’s Chevrolet took the lead by launching a compact car, the Chevrolet Beat, priced between Rs 3.34 lakh and Rs 4.23 lakh.

Tuesday will see the unveiling of concept cars from Honda Siel Cars India and a small car from Toyota Kirloskar Motors exclusively designed for the Indian market.

Though the Honda and Toyota vehicles will only be launched in 2011 and beyond, their unveiling will mark the foray of two Japanese icons into the mass market.
