Here are few pics from Honda's pavilion.
Thanks a ton Bluevolt.

Any Kitted Up Hondas?Mugen or something?

I guess None! May be I missed something? Other members who visited may share their report of Honda's hall. But there was nothing exciting except the city facelift.

I'm not sure if this has been asked before - But, didnt Bajaj participate in the expo? Didnt see any pics / new regarding Bajaj. (Except for the ulc in seperate thread).

I know they postponed KTM launch, but did they skip the expo as well?

Did not see any thing other than RE60 from Bajaj. To me it was so ugly that didn't take even one pic of it.

Well, the Auto-Expo has certainly been a hit on T-Bhp Close to 228k views in this thread alone, followed by Safari (76k), EcoSport (48k), Maruti XA (45k) and Ertiga (41k) as of now. So, we do know who took the limelight of AutoExpo

Kudos to the Mods and Bhpians who maintained the quality in here. The content and the pics have been terrific!

Very true raVan, its all because of excellent reports and Photos from Mods and Bhpians. The detailing is more than what you can see on your visit.

I sense a lot of impatience here.

Hold on folks, the moderators are human too, and they've got lives to lead. You can be rest assured that Team BHP's Auto-Expo coverage would be the most comprehensive. All the threads will come up shortly. Just give them a week.

Question Re: The Mega Auto Expo 2012 Thread : Where are the Compact Sedans?

Folks,

What happened to all the "Compact Variants of the existing Cars" that were likely to be shown in the Auto Expo 2012???
  1. Maruti Dzire Compact Sedan (based on the New Swift)
  2. Tata Manza Compact Sedan
  3. Mahindra Verito Compact Sedan
  4. Honda Brio Sedan
  5. Mahindra Xylo Mini
  6. Ambassador Compact
Was expecting these to make some impact in the Auto Expo.

Until about couple of months there were talks everywhere, about these "sub-4-meter" variants.

Thanks,
C_

Skoda and VW participated. Skoda was opposite to Audi.

I am really disappointed this time, so much of chaos. People were going berserk as if have never seen automobiles before. Stupids staring at girls like dogs taking their photographs. SO much of non-sense. Most of the people seemed to be missing civility.
Somebody was quoted saying in news paper that such people can possibly never be their costumers.
There was apparent mismanagement on organizers part too.

Just my cents
1. A new larger venue should be arranged for next time and preferably not in the city center.
2. Increased ticket fare to purge out "just like that" visitors.

Think you wish had already been granted by organizers. Heard somewhere in Auto Expo that this is the last Auto Expo in Pragati Maidaan. Next time onwards they are shifting it to some bigger venue outside delhi but within NCR. May not be true but who knows. I would prefer it to be closer to F1 Track

I feel the organizers should get their act together rather than shifting the venue. They should fix a number of tickets and then thats it. Why do they keep selling the tickets when they see inside it is jam packed.

At the same time restrict the number of free passes. There is no other problem then excessive crowd.

Simple!!

What kind of people and crowd comes also matters. Raising the ticket price and reducing them in numbers will help keeping rowdy and free roamers out.
