Thanks so much for the pictures.

That Mahindra LBPV is awesome. In my opinion, it's pure halo car material, Mahindra should have it on every auto exhibition

Thanks for sharing. Wanted to visit the expo, however the date coincided with some other plan and wasn't able to.

Looks like you were able to climb / get in to many of the vehicles. Were you a business visitor or are they allowing it for all visitors ?


Also, heard about naval ships on display at Chennai port during this period. Were you able to visit those?

WOW thank you for the coverage. Some really impressive toys there, wonder how many of them are in line of consumption or already on duty with the Indian defense forces?

The trucks looks great, although way too boxy. Yes looks are of least priority when it comes to defense vehicles, however, some of them just look weird.

Is there another batch of pictures coming up? Eagerly waiting.

Yes , naval ships were on display at Chennai port , but could not manage to visit those .I did register as a business visitor , on 14th April it was open for public, but I doubt they kept the vehicles open that day .

Thank you for the images and detailed pictures. I have heard and read before Expo about other Automobile manufacturers too will be present at the Expo like Renault, Scania etc with there products, were they ? And also how was the overall quality nowadays of the products from Ashok Leyland, Tata, Mahindra & other Indian manufacturers ?

Thanks a ton for sharing!

Where is this held? Any fixed timelines every year? Do we need to register/buy some passes to visit?

No , they were not present .Government's focus is on Make In India and hence all local manufacturers were present in full force and the products displayed by them were of world class standards i think. Ashok Layland have just begged an order of 800 Cr from government regarding the trucks ,there is a separate forum on that here . Tatra slowly but surely moving out from the forces and that is a good thing .

It is a biannual event, this time it was held at chennai, last was at 2016 Goa . Now 2020 dates and venue still not declared yet.
Yes , you do have to register online and pay the fees for the passes .As a business delegate ,it costed me Rs. 2000 .Registering as a business visitor helps rather then going as a general visitor as you have access to all the areas of display .

I was one of the lucky souls who managed to sneak in before the entry to the expo was choked by the general public on April 14th, the day for public viewing. A lot of the stalls had already started packing up their wares, especially the foreign ones.

Some of the pics I managed to click through the crowd below.

Hi,
A very informative post.
Can you or other esteemed forum members put some light on the tyre deflation and tyre inflation switch shown in one of the pics.
What is does is self explanatory. But how does it work?

That seems to be the gadget that helps in inflating / deflating, I suppose. A miniaturized tire inflator perhaps?

Dear risham , that is the central tire inflation system or CTIS as it is called and you can have a detail outlook of that in the following link,

Please read it , specially the later part with figure .
