As early as 2025, Maruti Suzuki will release its first electric vehicle (EV).

A Gujarat-based facility will manufacture the model from 2024-25.

An expansion of the Indian-Japanese automaker's production facility is planned for the future.

It will invest Rs 11,000 crore in the first phase to set up two manufacturing plants at IMT Kharkhoda in Sonipat, Haryana.

In 2025, a first unit will be established, followed a year later by a second.

Due to the high cost of EV batteries and technology, the first Maruti electric car is expected to cost over Rs 10 lakh.

During the 2023 Auto Expo, the model may make its first appearance in concept form.

It will be powered by Toyota's heavily localized DNGA modular platform, which is designed to support EVs.

There are two options for battery size - 48kWh and 59kWh.

According to the former, a 500km range is promised, while the latter promises 400km.
