BRAIN & BRAWN
The 65th IAA CV Show in Hannover was host to 2,066 exhibitors from 45 countries – 59 percent of whom were from outside Germany. The total tally is 9 percent more than the previous edition. At 2,50,000, the number of trade visitors stayed close to the highs seen in recent years. In all, there were 322 world premieres on the 2,65,000 square metre premises. While the number of launches may seem huge, in reality, one saw many upgrades/variants too. Most of the Euro VI products have already been launched. That said, the paradigms of connectivity, efficiency and innovation were guiding themes for the exhibition. This may be seen in the rash of electric and alternate fuelled vehicles as much as autonomously controlled trucks. We present you highlights of the show over the following pages.
