Pune, India, 1st November 2023: — India’s dynamic landscape in the electric vehicle (EV) sector is poised for a monumental celebration as Pune, the automotive heart of the nation, gets ready to host the grandest EV exhibition in the country. From December 1 to 3, 2023, Pune will become the nucleus of innovation, green technology, and automotive excellence as it welcomes the “India International EV Show (IIEV).”
In its third edition, IIEV is all set to make history as the largest EV exhibition in India. This extraordinary event promises to showcase the latest innovations, eco-friendly transportation solutions, and visionary initiatives in the ever-evolving electric vehicle industry. IIEV offers a platform for manufacturers, enthusiasts, and industry leaders to converge and explore the boundless potential of sustainable mobility.
India’s electric vehicle market is no longer a niche; it’s a thriving industry that has captured the imagination of the nation. The country’s commitment to sustainable transportation and increased environmental awareness have ignited a revolution in the automotive sector. The numbers are telling – India is emerging as one of the world’s largest electric vehicle markets.
The event is scheduled to take place at the Auto Cluster Exhibition Centre, strategically located in Pimpri Chinchwad- Pune, where visitors will be immersed in the world of cutting-edge EV technologies.

As per the recent report, the registration of electric vehicles (EVs) in Pune city in the last financial year (2022-23) has increased by over 200 per cent, when compared to 8,668 registrations in 2021-22.
Electric vehicle sales in India are witnessing sustained growth month on month but if additional quantitative proof of the growing consumer shift to electric mobility in India is required, then it came on August 10, 2023, in the form of Union Transport Minister Nitin Gadkari’s written reply in the Lok Sabha. As per the data provided by the Union Minister and sourced from the government’s Vahan website, there are over 2.8 million registered electric vehicles (EVs) – 28,30,565 units – on Indian roads as of August 8, 2023.
Recent reports suggest that India’s EV market is on the cusp of exponential growth. Market expectations indicate that India is set to become one of the world’s top electric vehicle markets in the coming years. Government incentives, a growing network of charging infrastructure, and an expanding range of electric vehicle models have made EV adoption more accessible.
“The transition to electric vehicles is no longer a question of ‘if’ but ‘when.’ India’s growing EV market is a reflection of its commitment to a sustainable future, and IIEV plays a crucial role in shaping this transition,” stated Mr. Namit Gupta, Director of the Futurex Group (the Event Organising Company)
As a prominent automotive hub, Pune is at the forefront of research, innovation, and production in the EV sector. The city’s expertise in manufacturing, research, and development has accelerated the growth of the electric vehicle market, making it an ideal location for the IIEV.
