If you want to know which auto maker has the best set of wheels, your search ends right here! The winners of the CNBC-TV18 Autocar Auto Awards 2008 were announced at a glittering ceremony yesterday.

On a glittering winter evening in Delhi, the who's who of the auto industry gathered in large numbers to check out who was in top gear at the CNBC-TV18 Autocar Auto Awards.

And this time around - Hyundai's i10 was a clear winner all the way. 
It won the two most prestigious awards - The Car of the Year Award and The Compact Car of the Year Award.

Heung Soo Lheem, MD, Hyundai Motors , said, "It's a great honour to have this prestigious award. I would like to dedicate this honour to all my staff in our Chennai factory and our dealers and suppliers."

From the four-wheeler pack to two-wheelers, the evening was a joyride for one and all.

While Hero Honda Hunk and the Royal Enfield Machismo 500, were fighting a close race, it was Bajaj 's XCD DTS-Si that stole the thunder as the bike of the year.

Rajiv Bajaj , MD, Bajaj Auto , said, "On my own part, I would like to say thank you. It's good that you gave us the 'Bike of the Year' this year. We are going for the 'Car of Year' next year."

From machines to the men behind all this hard work. There were accolades for one and all. Jagdish Khattar , who is known for steering the country's number one car maker Maruti for many years - received The Man of the Year Award.

Jagdish Khattar, Ex-MD, Maruti Udyog, said, "I have always been learning in Maruti because I have no background in automobiles or no such thing. My team there has worked very hard and I happened to be there, so I take the award on their behalf."

And last but not definitely the least, the one category that has most of us drooling - The Best Premium Car - the BMW 3 series. And seated amongst all these winners was a winner of a different kind. His contribution to climate change has made him a Nobel Prize winner.

RK Pachauri, DG, TERI, said, "The world is going to move to a low carbon future and the auto industry has to see the writing on the wall and make sure they can bring about that kind of change."

CNBC TV18's Auto Awards mean different things to different people. But what drives everyone is the passion to excel.
