Suzuki has lifted the veils off the eVX concept that will evolve into a fully electric production SUV set to debut in 2025. The concept was introduced at the Auto Expo 2023 held in Delhi, India, showcasing a new design identity for the brand.
The eVX concept measures 4,300 mm (169.3 inches) long, 1,800 mm (70.9 inches) wide, and 1,600 mm (63 inches) tall. This means it is exactly as long as the ICE-powered SX4 S-Cross, 125 mm (4.9 inches) longer than the Vitara, and 45 mm (1.8 inches) shorter than the new Grand Vitara.

Visually, the eVX looks a lot more modern compared to Suzuki’s current product range. At the front, it has V-shaped LED headlights that are connected with a transparent and fully covered grille above the Suzuki emblem. The sculpted bumper also has a skid plate, surrounded by a heavy dose of plastic cladding. The same treatment is applied around the boxy wheel arches highlighting the futuristic aero-style alloy wheels.
The profile is characterized by toned-up fenders, frameless doors, and flush door handles. Those features will most certainly be toned down for production, alongside the mirror-replacing cameras. The roof and the A-pillars are painted in black for a bi-tone look, combined with a subtle green shade and bronze accents on the lower part of the bodywork. At the back, the high-mounted full-width LED taillights have 3D graphics and appear to open with the tailgate. There is also a large rear spoiler and a skid plate with an F1-style brake light.
Unfortunately, there are no photos or sketches of the interior and we can’t see through the heavily tinted windows.
Suzuki didn’t announce the specifications of the electric powertrain, other than hinting it will be a 4×4 honoring the automaker’s legacy. The brand also revealed that the battery has a capacity of 60 kWh, allowing a fully electric range of 550 km (342 miles) measured under the Indian MIDC cycle.
Speaking about the eVX during its unveiling at the Auto Expo 2023, Suzuki’s president said: “I am delighted to unveil the eVX, our first global strategic EV”. This likely means that the production version expected in 2025, will be offered in European and Asian markets.
