The past week was mostly about updates on upcoming models and official claimed fuel economy figures

If you have been waiting for news about the upcoming Honda Elevate compact SUV, then this was a good week for you as a lot of new details were revealed. At the same time, we got word of another Maruti-Toyota shared model, and the upcoming Tata SUV facelifts were spied again. Let’s take a look at all the automotive industry highlights of the week.

BYD proposal rejected

The China-based EV-maker had put forward plans to invest US$ 1 billion in India for local manufacturing, in partnership with a Hyderabad-based company. However, that proposal was rejected by the government, likely due to the ongoing tensions between India and China. You can read more about BYD’s proposal and Indian lineup here.

Toyota Fronx confirmed

The Maruti-Toyota line of shared models is set to grow with the Fronx crossover SUV as well. It is based on the Baleno, which is already sold by Toyota as the Glanza, so it’s not that surprising that the crossover gets a rebadged version too. Find out when it is due to launch here.
