The manufacturers like Maruti Suzuki India Limited, Hyundai Motors India Limited, Tata Motors and Mahindra & Mahindra have confirmed to participate in the event and showcase their latest concept and electric vehicles. Similarly, the manufacturers like Skoda, Volkswagen, Renault, Mercedes-Benz and the new entrants like MG Motors and Kia Motors will mark their presence during the event.
