The top car manufacturer in the nation, Maruti Suzuki India, has announced that it will introduce its first electric vehicle in 2025. This action is a part of the company’s efforts to support the Indian government’s 2030 target of 30% adoption of electric vehicles (EVs).
The upcoming electric vehicle will be produced at the company’s factory in Gujarat, and it will be customized to meet the requirements of the Indian market, according to a statement issued by the company. The vehicle will be reasonably priced and have cutting-edge technologies for a comfortable and effective ride.
Maruti Suzuki’s Managing Director and CEO, Kenichi Ayukawa, said, “We are committed to supporting the government’s vision of promoting electric mobility in the country. Our first electric car will be designed and developed keeping in mind the needs and preferences of our customers in India.”
This action by Maruti Suzuki India is anticipated to promote the country’s EV business and inspire other manufacturers to take a similar approach. The government has been taking numerous actions to encourage electric mobility throughout the nation, including providing manufacturers and customers with incentives and subsidies.
In addition to introducing its first electric vehicle, Maruti Suzuki India is establishing charging stations all around the nation and building infrastructure to facilitate the expansion of electric vehicles. Experts and industry officials have applauded the company’s decision and hope it will accelerate the adoption of electric vehicles in the nation and reduce the nation’s reliance on fossil fuels.
Maruti Suzuki India is renowned for releasing vehicles that are in accordance with the Indian market and consumer expectations. The decision to introduce its first electric vehicle in 2025 is anticipated to raise the bar for the Indian auto industry and pave the way for a more sustainable and greener future.
