MAA has launched the groundwork for the most significant motor show in the country. Themed ‘Beyond Mobility’, preparations are underway for auto marques to showcase their exhilarating automobiles and promote their R&D achievements and visions at KLIMS’18.

We are committed to produce vehicles that are fun to drive, environmentally friendly and have class-leading safety technology. Honda assures that it is not going to be just about the vehicles but the advanced technology beyond it.”
