This month CarIndia cel­e­brates its 13th an­niver­sary and I would like to thank all our read­ers and man­u­fac­tur­ers for their sup­port.

At the time of the in­cep­tion of this mag­a­zine in 2005, Next Gen Pub­lish­ing could have adopted the tried and tested for­mula of launch­ing an­other au­to­mo­tive mag­a­zine; how­ever, the man­age­ment took a bold step by start­ing a mag­a­zine ded­i­cated to cars as those in all the ma­ture mar­kets that do not have two-wheel­ers, three-wheel­ers, cars, and com­mer­cial ve­hi­cles all crammed into one mag­a­zine. Even to­day Car In­dia is the only car mag­a­zine in the coun­try.

We have a cou­ple of ex­clu­sive sto­ries for you this month such as the AMG GT C Road­ster, BMW X4, and Audi Q8 first drive.

I would like to thank the mar­ket­ing team at Car In­dia as also the edi­to­rial team for their hard work and es­pe­cially the de­sign team who work for long hours to bring out such beau­ti­ful lay­outs and cov­ers.

The de­bate over elec­tric ve­hi­cles (EV) and hy­brids will con­tinue as a new study shows that diesel plug-in hy­brids will be the way to go in the fu­ture, for one can re­duce NOx lev­els by adding chem­i­cals such as AdBlue but one can­not bring down CO2 lev­els in the petrol engines.

Once again I would like to thank all our read­ers and man­u­fac­tur­ers for their sup­port and I look for­ward to your con­tin­ued sup­port in the fu­ture. Please obey traf­fic rules, drive safely, and take care.
