Here we have listed the upcoming electric SUVs from Maruti Suzuki, Hyundai, Tata and Mahindra in India over the next 12 to 18 months

India’s top four automotive brands, Maruti Suzuki, Hyundai, Tata and Mahindra, are planning to launch new electric SUVs over the next twelve months or so and here we have explained about them:

1. Tata Curvv & Harrier EV:

By the middle of this year, Tata will introduce the electric version of the Curvv followed by the ICE variant. The midsize electric SUV coupe will have a claimed range of more than 500 km on a single charge and it will likely support V2L function. The five-seater will sit on the same Acti.ev platform, which debuted in the Punch EV a few weeks ago.

Later this year, Tata Motors will introduce the production-spec Harrier EV, which was showcased at the Bharat Mobility Global Expo 2024 a month ago. It takes design inspiration form the recently facelifted Harrier EV and the interior will have several commonalities with it. Multiple airbags, ADAS, a floating touchscreen, a digital cluster, etc will be available.

2. Hyundai Creta EV:

While not officially confirmed, Hyundai is expected to premiere the electric version of the Creta before the end of this year or in early 2025. It will compete with the forthcoming Curvv EV, Maruti Suzuki eVX and its Toyota sibling amongst others. The midsize SUV will likely use a battery pack sourced from LG Chem, and the electric motor could be borrowed from the base-spec Kona Electric.

3. Maruti Suzuki eVX:

In late 2023, the more evolved version of the Suzuki eVX concept debuted in Tokyo and it has already been caught testing multiple times in India as well as abroad. It will be produced in India and shipped elsewhere too and will be based on the 27PL platform shared with Toyota. The top-end variants could feature a 60 kWh battery pack, capable of around 550 km range as in the concept. It will launch in late 2024 or early 2025.

4. Mahindra XUV.e8:

The Mahindra XUV.e8 will be based on the XUV700 and it was initially projected to launch by December 2024. Now expected to reach showrooms in H1 2025, the XUV.e8 draws plenty of inspiration from its concept and it will be the first model to sit on the INGLO platform.
