The concept version is strikingly similar to the spotted model. It features blacked out grille, L-shaped headlamps and curves with smooth bumpers and creases.


Maruti Suzuki EVX features wrap-around taillights, silver connected bars, rear door handles with C-pillars, and integrated roof spoiler. The roofline looks like the coupe model. The electric SUV has extensive cladding all around. That's why the rugged design is obvious.


The cabin of the car features a large screen, two spoke earring, instrument cluster, AC vent, rotary dial on the center console, electrically adjustable driver seat. The SUV offers multiple airbags and advanced driver assistance system.

The vehicle can be equipped with a battery with LPF blade cells of 60 kWh capacity to provide propulsion power. It is expected to provide a range of 550 km on a full charge. But in reality it can be assumed that the range will be close to 400 km.
