Prime Minister Narendra Modi is slated to address the Bharat Mobility Global Expo 2024 on February 2. The three-day extensive exhibition, scheduled from February 1-3 at Bharat Mandapam in Delhi, will unite 28 OEMs and over 600 component manufacturers. The objective of the event is to spotlight India as a worldwide centre for mobility.
Unlike the bi-annual India Auto Expo held in January last year, the Bharat Mobility Expo will encompass the entire mobility ecosystem, featuring exhibitions of electric, hybrid, bio-fuel, and hydrogen vehicles, powertrain technologies, components, eco-friendly tyres, battery technology, charging infrastructure, connected technologies, and alternative fuel technologies.
Leading OEMs participating in the exhibition include Maruti Suzuki, Hyundai, Tata Motors, Skoda Volkswagen, Mercedes Benz, Volvo Eicher Commercial Vehicles, Ashok Leyland, Hero MotoCorp, Bajaj Auto, Royal Enfield, Ather Energy, and Godawari Electric Motors. Over 50 battery and storage companies, 10 leading tyre makers, and nine construction equipment makers will also participate in the expo.
The event is organised by the Ministry of Commerce, in collaboration with several other ministries and industry bodies such as SIAM, ACMA, Automotive Tyre Manufacturers’ Association, Society of Manufacturers of Electric Vehicles, and NASSCOM.
The fifth edition of ACMA Automechanika will be held as a subset of the Bharat Mobility Global Expo in Bharat Mandapam. Automechanika, primarily focusing on the aftermarket, will showcase over 50 new products.
Amardeep Singh Bhatia, additional secretary of the Ministry of Commerce & Industry, informed reporters that over 800 exhibitors, including domestic and 50 overseas players, will participate in the Bharat Mobility Global Expo. Visitor registrations have surpassed one lakh.
During the curtain-raiser event earlier this month, Minister of Commerce and Industries Piyush Goyal highlighted that the expo will exhibit what India has to offer to the world. Goyal also encouraged the Indian auto industry to aim for increasing their share of vehicle exports to at least 50 percent from the current 14 percent.
