Maruti is making significant advancements in the electric vehicle (EV) sector, unveiling the eVX, its inaugural EV developed in collaboration with Toyota.

Earlier showcased as a pre-production concept at the 2023 AutoExpo, recent spy images captured a test mule of the eVX electric SUV undergoing trials on Indian roads.

Despite the heavy camouflage, the prototype, seen in Gurugram, displays a more subdued design than the concept, featuring Y-shaped LED headlamps, a blanked-off grille, a large lower air dam, and a sculpted bonnet.

The side profile is sporty, showcasing C-pillar mounted rear door handles, multi-spoke alloy wheels, a roof-mounted spoiler, sharp LED taillamps connected by a thin LED strip, and a shark fin antenna.

The upcoming Maruti eVX will utilize a skateboard EV architecture codenamed 27PL, derived from Toyota’s 40PL platform. While specific powertrain details from Maruti are pending, it is known that the eVX will be equipped with a 60kW battery, offering a maximum range of 550 km on a single charge.

Upon launch, the expected price range is between Rs 16 and Rs 20 lakh (ex-showroom), positioning the eVX in competition with MG ZS EV, Hyundai Kona Electric, Mahindra XUV400, and Tata Nexon EV Max.
