    The move away from the national capital was probably one of the reasons why footfalls fell to 5,61,000 from 7,50,000 in 2012.

    This year at the event, there were 23 cars, 14 two- and three-wheelers, 10 commercial vehicles and six electric vehicles exhibitors.

    The 2014 edition of the Auto Expo came to a close on February 11. This year, things were quite different, with the biggest change being the venue. Pragati Maidan was ditched in favour of the India Expo Mart in Greater Noida and only the Auto Components Expo was held at the older venue.
