Suzuki, which holds nearly half of the passenger car market in India is going to start tests of electric cars in the country.
The japanese manufacturer will begin with a fleet of 50 prototypes, based on the conventional Suzuki Wagon Rkei car. Series of produced EVs we can expect around 2020.
“Suzuki will put the car through rigorous testing, particularly since it will be the company’s first electric model. The automaker says it will expand its electric-car lineup after smaller models are on the market.”
In 2017, Suzuki entered an agreement with Toyota about the commercialization of EVs in India. Toyota will provide technical support for Suzuki, which will produce the cars locally, while Suzuki will provide part of production to Toyota. The other two Suzuki partners are Toshiba and Denso.
