This month Car In­dia cel­e­brates its 12th an­niver­sary. I would like to thank all our read­ers and man­u­fac­tur­ers for their sup­port for the past 12 years. I would also like to thank the team at

Car In­dia for pulling out all the stops to bring out this mag­a­zine. You will al­ways see my pic­ture or the au­thor’s photo who writes the story, but you will not see the pho­tos of the un­sung heroes — the pho­tog­ra­phers, de­sign­ers, and the copy desk ed­i­tor — and the mar­ket­ing team that works very hard to gen­er­ate the rev­enue and make it pos­si­ble to bring out this mag­a­zine month af­ter month.

Mov­ing to elec­tric cars in In­dia is a dis­tant prospect as we don’t have suf­fi­cient power sup­ply for our do­mes­tic and in­dus­trial needs. Take into ac­count the pol­lu­tion cre­ated by power plants while gen­er­at­ing elec­tric­ity since most of them are coal or oil fired, and this gives rise to more pol­lu­tion than a Bharat IV car does. It is very easy to make state­ments and look good say­ing we are go­ing green. Be­cause of the mul­ti­ple lanes at CNG filling sta­tions you have traf­fic jams on the roads of Delhi. The need of the hour is more CNG filling sta­tions and then we can think about elec­tric cars.

We have an ex­clu­sive drive story of the new Mercedes-Benz S-Class and the Tata Nexon, be­sides a num­ber of in­ter­est­ing sto­ries for you to en­joy in this mega is­sue.

En­joy this 12th an­niver­sary is­sue and al­ways drive with cau­tion. Thank you one and all once again for your sup­port.
