Maruti Suzuki has just unveiled a prototype electric vehicle at the ongoing MOVE Summit in New Delhi. While the company has not revealed any model name, only calling it only a prototype EV, the model showcased has similar styling to the Japanese spec WagonR and it is safe to expect the production version to bear quite a few similarities.


The model showcased at the event has design cues that are shared with standard WagonR sold in the Japanese domestic market, which has been on sale since January 2017. The WagonR EV gets split headlamps and, despite being an EV, it also features a huge two part grille. The front bumper also gets a huge grille section.

Accordingly Maruti will launch the WagonR EV in the Indian market in April 2020. The company has not yet revealed specifications of the India bound model, or where the components have been sourced from. However, the vehicle shown at the event stood on MRF tyres. Maruti had stated earlier that the WagonR EV is likely to cost more than twice the price of the standard car at launch and this still remains the same. These road tests will help the company find a balance between the car’s range, charging time and pricing.
