Maruti Suzuki has been busy planning its first all-electric SUV, eVX for India. As the landscape shifts toward EVs, the largest carmaker in the country wants to ensure that it doesn’t lag behind. In India, the EV market is utterly dominated by Tata Motors. Its products like the Nexon EV, Tiago EV and Tigor EV have captured over 80% of the total market share. Hence, Maruti wants to catch up with a dedicated EV rather than a conversion from an ICE model. In this latest spy video, the electric SUV has been spotting testing.

Maruti eVX Seen Next to S-Cross
This post comes from cardekhoindia on Instagram. It captures the mid-size electric SUV in what looks like a parking lot. The front fascia is partially visible which incorporates a sleek LED headlamp cluster. Apart from that, the SUV has a stylish alloy wheel design and a shark fin antenna. There is an S-Cross parked right next to it. Comparing the two clearly reveals that the EV is almost similar to the S-Cross. We expect it to be around 4.3 m in length. In a previous instance, the interior layout of the concept model was showcased. It bears a modern and minimalistic design theme inside the cabin.

While there is currently no official confirmation, the eVX could come with a 60 kWh battery pack. This battery has the potential to power either a single-motor setup for a 2WD configuration or a dual-motor setup for AWD. This configuration may provide a peak power output ranging from 138 to 170 hp. Notably, the range of the vehicle is approximately 550 km. In terms of dimensions, the eVX will have a length of around 4,300 mm, a width of 1,800 mm, and a height of 1,600 mm, featuring a wheelbase that leads the segment. However, we will have to wait for official confirmation of these specifications.

Even though Maruti Suzuki might not be the pioneer in the electric vehicle market, it will learn from other automakers about customer preferences and the hurdles they confront. This strategic approach is commonly known as the “last-mover’s advantage,” allowing Maruti Suzuki to sidestep potential pitfalls encountered by early entrants. Considering the current market inclination towards SUVs, it makes strategic sense for the company to initiate its venture into eco-friendly vehicles with an electric SUV. Moreover, achieving success in the EV market relies on delivering a product with advanced features, an impressive range, and competitive pricing.
