EVs on the pipeline
Maruti Suzuki eVX
The Maruti Suzuki eVX is among the highly anticipated offering from Maruti. It would mark the company’s first-ever electrified model offering in the Indian market.
In hindsight, Maruti initially debuted the eVX at the recent Auto Expo 2023. It revealed the model’s futuristic design that is distinct from the current product portfolio of the automaker. It has an elegant coupe-like appearance that boasts remarkable dimensions (4,300mm x 1,800mm x 1,600mm with a 2,700mm wheelbase).
Maruti claims it would offer a maximum 550 km driving range owing to its 60kWh battery pack.
As for the launch date, the Maruti Suzuki eVX is expected to arrive in 2025.
Suzuki Hustler EV
Suzuki Hustler EV was a Japanese Kei car, the “smallest highway-legal passenger car.”
Now, Maruti aims to electrify the model for the Indian market. The automaker has yet to reveal more details about this SUV-inspired EV.
Maruti Suzuki Wagon R EV
The Indian automaker is already testing the Wagon R EV in India. It features a unique blue Suzuki branding. Its design elements also differ from its internal combustion engine-powered counterpart.
The report suggests the model would sport a battery pack below 30kWh capacity. It would serve as a new option for price-conscious customers in the Indian market.
Another two SUV models
Apart from the first three EV models mentioned above, Maruti also aims to launch two new compact SUVs.
However, the automaker has not yet released specific information about these particular models.
Nonetheless, they will surely expand the local customers’ choices regarding green and attractive EVs.
