Auto Expo 2020 is a yardstick for the auto industry and enthusiasts alike. Given that it comes after 2019 which was a slow year for auto sales, the expo takes on a bigger importance. Set to be hosted from February 7 to 12 at the India Expo Mart in Greater Noida, this year's edition also marks a sea change in two ways. Auto Expo 2020 spells the transition to BS6 emission norms for all car and bike makers and it will also be their platform to showcase their vision of future mobility through electric vehicles, both concepts and production models. For its sheer scale, there is no parallel to the expo. So expect a tonne of excitement and of course, many, many SUVs!

This year’s Auto Expo has fewer participation but also new entrants like Great Wall Motors. Eleven car manufacturers and two bike makers will be present at the event. Here’s the list:
Very strict. One has to pass through a stringent security check to enter the event. You’ll be frisked at the entry point by security personal. All bags will be scanned by the X-ray machine. Items like weapons, firearms, knives/blades, sharp objects, lighters, matchboxes, toy weapons, inflammable materials, laser pointers, glass/plastic containers, cans, bottles and all manner of boxes are strictly prohibited inside the venue. If found, it will be confisticated immediately by the authorities.
You can carry luggage to the Auto Expo. But we suggest you don’t as the event is spread across a vast area and finding a cloakroom will be difficult.
