The Auto Expo sees participation from various OEMs from around the world that showcase their future products for the Indian market. However, in its business-to-consumer (B2C) nature and given the fact that it is visited by large crowds, Menon had last year said that the magnitude of the risk of spread of infection is extremely high and maintaining social distancing would be difficult. It is in this context that the Indian automobile industry and SIAM recognised the inherent risks in organising the Auto Expo due and the possible third wave at that point of time.

He had noted that safety of exhibitors, visitors and all stakeholders involved and present at the Auto Expo was the top most priority for SIAM. In 2020, the auto show saw a total footfall of over six lakh visitors. The country's flagship auto show had witnessed around 70 product launches and unveils, and 352 product displays from 108 exhibitors.
