Maruti Suzuki has just unveiled a prototype electric vehicle at the ongoing MOVE Summit in New Delhi. While the company has not revealed any model name, only calling it only a prototype EV, the model showcased has similar styling to the Japanese spec WagonR and it is safe to expect the production version to bear quite a few similarities.
The model showcased at the event has design cues that are shared with standard WagonR sold in the Japanese domestic market, which has been on sale since January 2017. The WagonR EV gets split headlamps and, despite being an EV, it also features a huge two part grille. The front bumper also gets a huge grille section.
Maruti will launch the WagonR EV in the Indian market in April 2020. The
company has not yet revealed specifications of the India bound model, or where
the components have been sourced from. However, the vehicle shown at the event
stood on MRF tyres. Maruti had stated earlier that the WagonR EV is likely to
cost more than twice the price of the standard car at launch and this still
remains the same. These road tests will help the company find a balance between
the car’s range, charging time and pricing.
Mahindra Y400 SUV likely to be priced from Rs 22 lakh According to report the Marazzo MPV was recently launched on September 3, 2018 and dealers wanted the MPV to enjoy more floor-space as the brand’s newest launch before introducing more new products. By launching the Y400 on October 9, Mahindra would essentially leave only around a month-long gap between both launches. The Mahindra Prime Zone, as reported by us earlier, will cater to the brand’s newer launches like the Marazzo MPV and the Y400 SUV.
