In line with its commitment to
introduce an electric vehicle by 2020, Maruti Suzuki has flagged-off proto-type
electric vehicles for field test. The prototype EVs were flagged off from the company’s
Gurugram facility by CV Raman, Senior Executive Director (Engineering).
At the MOVE Summit in
September this year, Osamu Suzuki, Chairman of Suzuki Motor Corporation, Japan
had announced the nation-wide field testing of 50 prototype electric vehicles. The
electric vehicles have been developed exclusively by Suzuki Motor Corporation,
Japan and built at Maruti Suzuki, Gurugram facility.
This extensive real-life usage
of the vehicles in multiple terrains and climatic conditions will help the
company get valuable insights that will help in validation and successful
launch of electric vehicle technology in India.
Testing of these vehicles will
also help Maruti Suzuki to gather critical inputs based on customer
perspectives and will help to create a reliable and suitable electric vehicle to
delight Indian customers. These proto-type electric vehicles have been
developed on an existing model of Suzuki Motor Corporation, Japan.
