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.
