  1. Very bad to see low Participation at Auto Expo 2023 because in 2020, there was COVID 19 and now less manufacturers are participating in the event. Auto Expo 2023 has very less participants. It would not be as joyful as it used to be in older times. Due to electric vehicles replacing ICE engines, it’s difficult to see participation from manufacturers in large numbers. There used to be supercar pavillion which is not present. Auto Expo 2020 was expected to be dry but 2023 is more on dry side.

    • We are afraid that what you fear might as well be true. But nonetheless, the Expo is still exciting if you wish to witness what OEMs have in line for the future.
