The Auto Sector

The auto sector is perhaps one of the most fiercely contested realms of business in the world. And the advent of sustainable options has made the automobile market, a strenuously fought one.

Alternatives in the form of the popular electric or hybrid cars, along with more experimental and less mainstream alternatives of hydrogen driven cars have in many ways forced a transition from petrol and diesel run vehicles, at least in some of segments.

The electric vehicle market specifically has been a tightly contested arena for the past few years, and the likes of Tesla and BYD have left legacy brands far behind.

In India, companies like MG face a stiff competition from indigenous companies including the likes of Tata, Maruti and Mahindra, who are in the process of carving their own position the market, before international players take advantage of the new changes brought in by the Indian government.
