The production-ready Maruti Suzuki eVX will likely reach showrooms in early 2024 and it will spawn a Toyota sibling
At the Japan Mobility Show 2023 starting in a couple of days, Suzuki will unveil the more evolved version of the eVX concept showcased at the 2023 Auto Expo in India along with its interior for the first time ever. The production version of the eVX is expected to make its global debut late next year and it will spawn a Toyota sibling.
Both models will be underpinned by Toyota’s 27PL platform. The Maruti Suzuki eVX will more likely go on sale in early 2025 and here we have renderings of the production-ready electric SUV. The digital renderings are more realistic and are toned-down versions of the eVX concept. The front fascia gets a shut-off grille with a black horizontal slat connecting the sleek LED headlamps.
The LED Daytime Running Lights are integrated into the headlamp cluster while the Suzuki badge is mounted on the black grille slat. The bumper features vertical air inlets on either side and the lower grille with hexagonal inserts is accompanied by a sliver skid plate. Elsewhere, you could see contemporary SUV design elements blending with modern touches.
Some of the highlights are pronounced wheel arches with black cladding, thick black lower door trim with silver inserts, black finished pillars and windshield giving a two-tone appearance, sturdy roof rails and a slightly sloping roofline, turn indicators on wing mirrors, body-coloured door handles, machined wheels, and a curvy bonnet with creases.
Round the back, the Suzuki eVX gets a similar tail lamp design as the concept with the bold eVX lettering in the middle of the sculpted tailgate. The rear bumper with horizontal reflectors and skid plate also remains similar to the conceptual version but in a slightly upright manner. The eVX concept has an overall length of 4.3 m, a width of 1.8 m and a height of 1.6 m.
The production model will have similar dimensions and it will compete against the upcoming Hyundai Creta EV, Tata Curvv EV, Mahindra XUV.e8, Kia Seltos EV and others in the midsize segment and it will be available in single- and dual-motor options globally. It will use a 60 kWh battery pack with a claimed driving range of over 550 km on a single charge.
