Suzuki’s first electric car will have a range of 550 kilometers


The market launch of the eVX is planned for the year 2025

Suzuki has been researching all propulsion technologies for over half a century, ever since creating the Suzuki Carry Van Electric in 1970. Electric, hydrogen, fuel cell and hybrid cars are pioneers in these technologies.

Now the brand has presented
The electric concept car eVX in a world premiere at Auto Expo 2023, which will be held on the outskirts of Delhi, India. It is the first all-electric SUV to emerge from the brand’s global electrification strategy. The market launch is planned for the year 2025.

The eVX is an electric SUV that combines Suzuki’s 4×4 DNA with the most advanced features of next-generation electric vehicles.

The exterior is designed to be instantly recognizable as a Suzuki SUV. In addition, it aims to take the brand’s 4×4 heritage into the new electric age to deliver the authentic Suzuki SUV driving experience.

Speaking of a press conference at the Auto Expo 2023, Suzuki’s president has stated: “I am delighted to present the eVX, our first electric model of our global strategy. In the battle of the Suzuki Group
against global warming it’s a priority. We promote a range of measures worldwide to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Suzuki will continue to provide useful products for our customers around the world that can adapt to the way they live and drive.”

The brand’s first electric model was presented more than half a century ago and was an electric version of the brilliant ultra-compact minivan designed by Giorgetto Giugiaro. The symmetrical shapes, sliding doors and large glass surface have made the fourth generation of the Suzuki Carry a design icon.

The electric version of the Carry is designed to patrol the terrain of the
1970 Osaka World’s Fair. True to the futuristic spirit of the time, a quiet and smoke-free march, a compact size and a large internal capacity dominated the specifications for its development. 10 units were delivered to the event organizers who fulfilled their mission without any problems.

Suzuki managed to keep the cabin intact by locating the battery and electric motor
under the vehicle floor, a configuration that was ahead of its time. The 60V, 4.6 kW motor propelled the Carry Van Electric up to 45 km/h and this vehicle had a range of 50 kilometres. A restored example of this model is kept in the Hamamatsu Suzuki Museum.

Currently, Suzuki in Spain has a complete range with five hybridization technologies, seven electrified models and 29 available configurations.
