Global car makers are in full force at the Delhi Auto Expo which got underway on Thursday with major car makers showcasing their new entrants.

Unlike the previous motor show where the spotlight was on small cars, the 11th edition of the Delhi Auto Expo focuses more on fuel- efficient sedans, SUVs and EVs.

BMW, Nissan, Audi, Volkswagen, Toyota and Ford have rolled out their new entrants to woo the potential Indian market, signalling that the current slowdown in the Indian auto sector is just a passing phase.

The UK-based Jaguar Land Rover (JLR) has displayed four of their new models - Land Rover's Defender Concept 100 and Defender Concept 100 Sport, the Jaguar C-X16 and the C-X75.

Volkswagen's XL1 hybrid, Ford's Eco Sport, Nissan's Leaf and Evalia, Maruti Suzuki's new compact SUV XA Alpha, Audi's new SUV Q3, Peugeot's Peugeot 508 are some of the other attractions.
