On the Auto Expo-Components Show 2016
This year I am very much
impressed. Since the last show, the components show is different from the Motor
Show. I think it is a good move. People are coming here with focussed approach.
Many OEM management has come here to know what the components manufacturers are
On reasons why Uno Minda has not participated in the show.
There is no specific reason
for that. We always thought it is better for us to go directly to the OEMs and
do our own technology presentation. This gets us better mileage. Such meetings
can have the OEM senior engineers also participating.
On the Auto Expo – The Motor Show 2016
The show has been a real
success with a lot of launches. Every company has done well. From the Maruti
Suzuki Brezza to the Toyotas and Hondas, all have done well with new launches.
Even the two wheeler players have done a good job. I am sure the Indian auto
industry has a great future.
On Uno Minda’s collaboration with Honda Car India
Honda connect has been a very
good collaboration between us and Honda. We are very proud of ourselves and
Honda to have collaborated. I foresee a very good success in the future for
both the companies.
On the “Make in India” initiative and the progress it has made
I think we are in the right
direction but we need to give more focus on the technology front. We can do the
manufacturing but technology and innovation are the things that will benefit us
in the future. More focus on technology and telematics, etc will be important
for our industry.
