  • Suzuki has revealed its EV plans until 2030. 

  • First EV coming to India in 2025 as the production-spec version of the eVX. 

  • Currently, Maruti has no EVs on sale, but its first EV is the eVX due in 2025.  

  • The Maruti eVX will be priced competitively in the ballpark of around Rs 20 lakh (ex-showroom). 

Japanese carmaker Suzuki, parent company of India’s largest carmaker Maruti, has finally divulged its electric vehicle strategy for our country and key markets. We can confirm that its first EV is coming in 2025, and by 2030, Maruti plans to offer six all-electric cars, forming 15 per cent of its lineup in India. Meanwhile, the European market has five EVs on the cards, while Japan will get six EVs as well, starting in 2024.  

Maruti’s electric plans for India 

In the latest presentation, Suzuki has given us the basic silhouettes of the models that are expected to arrive as EVs. 

The first EV, as we already know, will be the production-spec version of the eVX concept unveiled at Auto Expo 2023. It’ll be a Grand Vitara-sized electric SUV that’ll compete with the MG ZS EV, Hyundai Kona Electric and the upcoming Tata Curvv and Harrier-based EVs. Since the launch is due in 2025, it’s still too early to talk about the price, but we can expect the SUV to be priced competitively. 

What could the other EVs be?

Maruti has used the silhouette of the recently unveiled Fronx as a reference for the third EV for India, so we reckon it could be a compact crossover. The high price of EV components makes EVs inherently more expensive than mass market ICE models that are the bread-and-butter for Maruti. Hence, it’s likely that most of the EVs introduced, at least initially, could be compact electric models aimed at the volume market. 

Among the three other models on the cards, some could be electric versions of existing ICE nameplates such as the Swift and even the Wagon R, based on our assumptions of the silhouetted models revealed by Suzuki. Plus, there was an outline of a Kei car as well destined for India, which, we suspect to be the Hustler EV. 

Suzuki’s EV plans have us excited about its upcoming electric models. With global carmakers as well as some countries’ governments planning to switch to electric vehicles entirely, we are happy to see India’s largest carmaker jumping in on the bandwagon.
