Much before the government
norm for electric vehicles in India sets in from 2030, Suzuki and Toyota
collaborated electric vehicles could be seen on Indian roads. Suzuki is
expected to also utilise its lithium ion battery plant in India which Suzuki is
setting up along with Toshiba and Denso. In short, it could be a great Japanese
presence in India.
It’s final now as both Toyota
and Suzuki have confirmed the
introduction of electric vehicles in India by 2020. Japanese car majors Toyota
Motor Corporation (Toyota) and Suzuki Motor Corporation (Suzuki) have concluded
a memorandum of understanding (MOU) on moving forward in considering a
cooperative structure for introducing electric vehicles (EVs) in the Indian
market in around 2020.

Earlier this year in February 6, the two Japanese majors Toyota and Suzuki had signed an MOU on beginning considerations for business partnership, after which they began discussing, among other topics, the dissemination of vehicle electrification technologies in India.
Now with the conclusion of the MoU, Suzuki is to produce EVs for the Indian market and will supply some to Toyota, while Toyota is to provide technical support. Additionally, Toyota and Suzuki intend to conduct a comprehensive study of activities for the widespread acceptance and popular use of EVs in India.
Such activities encompass the establishment of charging stations, human resources development that includes training for after-service technicians employed throughout sales networks, and systems for the appropriate treatment of end-of-life batteries.
