Mahindra is being busy at the New Delhi Auto Show, unveiling two electric cars: the Mahindra Reva Halo EV concept sports car and the Mahindra Racing Formula E electric race car. If reports are to be believed, the Indian company wants to build the Halo as, well, a halo electric car for the brand. Reva could use it, since long-time electric vehicle fans will most likely associate the Reva name with the unloved G-Wiz.

We've talked a lot about the Honda Vezel over the past few months, as the Autoblog staff is looking forward to the Fit-based CUV. It's a handsome little vehicle, that we think will do quite well when it finally arrives in the US market. That said, it's not a particularly exciting vehicle to look at.
DC Design, an Indian firm better known for creating one-off customized vehicles based on anything from the Tata Nano to Rolls-Royce coupes, has officially pulled the covers off its first production supercar at the New Delhi Auto Expo. Called the Avanti, we can't help but wonder what esteemed designer Raymond Loewy might think of this creation.
Details are decidedly scarce – which, judging by the company in question, is surely by design – but Toyota has announced that it will be unveiling a new compact concept car at the 10th Auto Expo automobile show in New Delhi on January 5. And ... that's about all we have on the subject. See, we told you details were slim. Expect the machine, which is likely bound for production in emerging markets only, to slot below the Yaris in size and price.
