Maruti eVX prototype spied testing in India for the first time
Maruti eVX concept was first showcased at the 2023 Auto Expo. It will be the carmaker’s first electric car in the portfolio which is expected to hit the showrooms in its production avatar by 2025.
Some of the prototypes were spotted testing in Europe a few months back. Now, the Maruti eVX has commenced testing in India and MotorBeamer Shantanu spotted the test mule in Bengaluru.
The prototype is heavily camouflaged but you could easily make out from the details that it’s the eVX. We have usually witnessed that Maruti’s concept to production version design journey is quite drastic. We hope the final design of the eVX isn’t a heavily toned down version.
The concept version measures 4.3 metres long and has a wheelbase of 2700 mm. It will compete with the upcoming electric Hyundai Creta. The eVX gets a 60 kWh battery with a claimed range of 550 km on full charge. There will be another variant that will get a smaller battery of 48 kWh having a range of around 400 km on full charge.
The interior is expected to get a dual screen setup for the digital cluster and the infotainment system. The screens are expected to measure around 10-inch each. The ORVMs of the Maruti eVX spied here have a bump indicating about a 360 degree camera system. The front left fender gets a charging socket. The rear doors get hidden door handles like the Swift on the C-pillar.
The Maruti eVX will be jointly developed with Toyota and the latter will also introduce a version of their own based on the same platform.
