2023 Auto Expo Participants
  • As the above table indicates, Mahindra, Honda, Jeep, Nissan, Renault, Skoda, Volkswagen and a handful of other mass-market carmakers will be missed at the upcoming MAHAKUMBH of Automobile.
  • For Mahindra, this was obvious as it has already showcased its upcoming electric lineup and a separate launch event will be held for the XUV400 and 5-door Thar in the near future.
  • Honda will also not attend the 2023 Indian Auto Expo. This comes as a big surprise as the Japanese automaker is unveiling a compact SUV in Indonesia next month, which is relevant for India as well.
  • We expected Jeep to showcase the Venue-rivaling compact SUV at the upcoming Auto Expo, but there are speculations that Jeep will also be missing from the Auto Expo.
  • Nissan’s absence has been brought up after the recent showcase of three SUVs. However, Renault is also unlikely to make an appearance at the show.
  • BMW and Mercedes-Benz, two of the most popular luxury automotive brands in India, will also be absent.
