GREATER NOIDA, India -- Top domestic and foreign car manufacturers such as Tata Motors, Maruti Suzuki India, Kia Motors and Honda Motor on Wednesday unveiled their next-generation models, including much-talked-about electric vehicles, at the biennial Auto Expo here.

At the show -- which is reserved for media previews until tomorrow before opening to the public Feb. 9-14 --Honda displayed its Sports EV Concept model that the automaker says combines EV performance and AI (artificial intelligence) inside the car's compact body.

The theme for India's Tata Motors was "Smart Mobility, Smart Cities," showcasing mobility solutions for "intelligently-connected cities designed to offer convenience, safety, security and efficiency to its customers." In line with the government's vision for an all-electric fleet by 2030, the company also displayed an extended range of six EVs for individuals and mass transport.

South Korea's Hyundai Motor, India's second-largest passenger carmaker after Maruti Suzuki, unveiled its Ioniq global EV, which offers three electrified versions -- hybrid, plug-in hybrid and all-electric. Sister company Kia Motors made its debut at the Expo, displaying its first fully-electric vehicle, called the Soul EV, along with other models.

Maruti Suzuki India, which is majority-owned by Japan's Suzuki Motor, highlighted its e-Survivor Concept, an EV design concept demonstrating the company's efforts in the area of electric mobility.
