The Suzuki eVX concept car revealed today in Delhi previews an electric SUV expected to be sold in global markets from 2025.
The concept crossover is Hyundai Kona-sized (4300mm long) and based on the company’s very limited statements may be available with dual-motor all-wheel drive.
“The eVX is an all-electric concept SUV derived out of Suzuki’s first global strategic EV. It is scheduled to be introduced to the market by 2025,” the company says.
“The eVX is a BEV model that combines Suzuki’s strong 4×4 DNA with the advanced features of the latest BEVs. The exterior is designed to be instantly recognisable as a Suzuki SUV. In addition, it aims to carry forward the brand’s 4×4 legacy into the new electric era.”
The only other information officially confirmed is the fitment of a 60kWh battery pack and a driving range of 550km on the Indian testing cycle, likely to be higher than what its WLTP rating will be.
There should also be an entry-level version as well that will come with a smaller battery of around 48kWh and around 400km of range.
We have it on good authority that the new model (codenamed YV8 internally) is going to use new dedicated EV architecture to be shared with Toyota – which will make its own version as part of a wide-ranging EV rollout.
Suzuki this week also discussed plans to use a Porsche Taycan-style multi-speed EV transmission made by Canadian company Inmotive Inc. designed to cut costs as well as improve efficiency.
The production model will reportedly be launched in January or February 2025 by the Indian subsidiary of Suzuki, but is also being developed for global markets. We understand Europe will be the priority region outside on India, with Australia down the pecking order.
Sorry for the terrible images. Suzuki hasn’t supplied any of useable resolution, meaning we grabbed screen shots from the livestream reveal.
