Auto Expo 2023: Where, when, and what to expect
Auto Expo is the biggest automotive event in India that takes place every two years, organised by the Society of Indian Automobile Manufacturers (SIAM), which is the apex governing body of the Indian automobile manufacturing industry. The event plays a crucial role in showcasing new cars, motorcycles, scooters, concept vehicles, commercial vehicles, automotive technology etc. However, the biennial automotive event had to be given a miss in 2022 owing to the Covid-19 pandemic-related disruptions.
