<p>According to the patent filings, Maruti Suzuki could be preparing to build its own infrastructure for charging, which it would name Maruti Suzuki Charge Hub. Although Maruti Suzuki has not formally addressed these rumors, the action suggests a deliberate change in favour of electrification and the creation of infrastructure for charging.</p>
<p>In January 2023, Maruti Suzuki debuted the eVX at the Auto Expo for the first time. It was subsequently on exhibit once again at the Japan Mobility Show in 2023 and is now at the Delhi-based Bharat Mobility Global Expo in 2024. The Maruti Suzuki eVX is anticipated to be introduced for the Indian market by the end of 2024 and will be the brand’s first electric vehicle. Under concealment, the eVX has also been seen conducting tests in India.</p>
<p>It is expected that Maruti Suzuki and Toyota would work together to build the future eVX, which is expected to come with two different battery pack choices. It is projected that the bigger 60 kWh lithium-ion battery pack would have a remarkable driving range of 550 km, while the smaller 48 kWh battery pack will have a range of 400 km.</p>
<p>The inside of the Maruti Suzuki eVX was recently shown at the Japan Mobility Show, showcasing a number of noteworthy features. It has a contemporary dashboard design with two separate digital displays for the digital instrument cluster and infotainment system. The temperature control system and menu navigation are controlled by touch-based controls, and the steering wheel has a distinctive two-spoke design fashioned like a yoke. In addition, the eVX’s center console now has a rotary knob that replaces the gear selector.</p>
