Hisashi Takeuchi is Autocar Professional's Man of the Year 2023

This superbly curated 230-pager is a comprehensive and insightful edition of Autocar Professional, offering a thorough review of the key events in the automotive industry throughout the year.

After looking at top executive performances of various automotive companies, we came to the conclusion that Hisashi Takeuchi, the MD and CEO of Maruti Suzuki India, has to be the Man of the Year 2023. His contribution to the industry in a period of just two years is unprecedented and makes inspiring corporate reading. Naturally, the cover story detailing Takeuchi's journey and his plans for Maruti Suzuki with Vision 3.0 adds a personal touch and insight into the leadership of one of the largest car makers.

The interviews and interactions with R C Bhargava, Chairman of Maruti Suzuki, and global CEOs and CXOs from Nissan, Volkswagen, Skoda, Lexus, and Mercedes Benz provide a well-rounded perspective on the automotive landscape. It's commendable that the issue delves into safety, design, electrification, and sector snapshots, offering a holistic view of the industry's current state and future directions.

Cherishing the past

The 19th-anniversary edition adds a celebratory element, and the special tribute from Hormazd Sorabjee on Maruti Suzuki's journey adds a historical context to the content.
