For Honda which had skipped the last Expo this is a big comeback time.
Located in Hall number 8, they have the entire space to themselves.
Having tasted major success with the new Honda City and also the new Accord,Honda is all set to increase their presence.
The stand according to company spokesman will be divided in three themes.
The first showing the cars which exist here in India as well as the ones which will be launched here in the new future.
And this is where you can get a chance to see the new Civic, which in all probability will be launched in the first quarter of this year.
The Civic is a spectacular looking car and will certainly offer stiff competition to the existing Dsegment cars like the Corolla and the Octavia.
The Civic however will not be launched with a diesel engine at least initially. The other theme that Honda will focus on is the technology that they have on offer and this means pretty much cutting edge.
And just to prove their point further they are bringing in the BAR Honda Formula 1 machine, which had been driven this year.
And again for most Formula 1 fans here in India this is a big opportunity to get up close with an F1 car.
The third theme Honda will focus on is the technology of the future and this includes Electric and Hybrid cars.
On show will be the FCX fuel cell car and the Insight, which is one of the first hybrid cars, which had seen mass production.
All in all the Honda pavilion should be an interesting place to be at.
