The Maruti Suzuki eVX EV SUV has been spotted undergoing testing in India, following earlier sightings in Poland, suggesting an imminent global reveal of the production version. The camouflaged test vehicle seen in Gurugram aligns with the design elements observed in the earlier spied SUV in Poland, featuring silver alloy wheels. The production variant is expected to remain true to the concept showcased at the 2023 Auto Expo and the Japan Mobility Show, maintaining its SUV-coupe-like body with wide haunches and a squat stance.
The interior details of the Maruti Suzuki eVX were revealed at the Japan Mobility Show, confirming the presence of a twin-screen setup. The cabin incorporates a large infotainment screen, a digital instrument cluster, vertical AC vents, and a flat-bottom steering wheel.
Anticipated to launch in late 2024, the Maruti eVX will compete with electric SUVs like the Hyundai Creta EV and higher variants of the Tata Nexon EV and Mahindra XUV400. Toyota is also expected to introduce its version of the eVX in the Indian market around 2025. Both the Maruti eVX and its Toyota counterpart will be manufactured at Suzuki’s Gujarat plant, with an annual production target of over 1.25 lakh vehicles. The SUVs will be based on a derivative of Toyota’s 40PL electric skateboard architecture, internally coded as 27PL, which is undergoing significant localization.
