Maruti had just recently announced of Rs 3900 crore for assembling electric vehicles plant.
This denotes that Maruti’s grand entry into the beginning yet firmly developing electric car segment in India.
Would we be able to anticipate that Maruti will race ahead Tata Motors and Mahindra & Mahindra in offering electric vehicles in India?
A year ago, Maruti had pronounced their aims in regards to electric vehicles, and had submitted a venture of Rs 3900 crore to set up their plant in Gujarat.
Firts it was assumed that its just a speculation in Auto Industry but now after a year, things are materializing, and some serious steps being planned and ready to be implemented.
WagonR, Maruti’s much realible small car which has proved to be a huge success in India and abroad, has been decided as the car which will be offered as electric vehicle.
Even Maruti has stike an association with Technology provider Toshiba to help in developing electric vehicles in India.
According to approaching reports, the new WagonR EV will be taken off in 2 variations: 5-seater and 7-seater; and would be estimated under Rs 10 lakh.
As per the market reports some analyst have claimed that the new WagonR EV will be empowered with both fuel based engine, and an electric engine which will have a capacity of between 25-35 MW.
The WagonR EV will be launched on the name of Suzuki Solio.
Maruti Suzuki has chosen to pick Gujarat as the scene for assembling their first electric vehicle, because of batteries.
Toshiba and Denso has declared their plans to set up battery producing unit in Gujarat, and Maruti knows that without batteries, their electric vehicles can’t run.
Subsequently, it bodes well for Maruti Suzuki to be in Gujarat, and close to Toshiba for effectively propelling their electric vehicles.
Maruti Suzuki is intending to dispatch their WagonR EV by 2020, and mean to help Govt. in presenting another age of electric vehicles. Maruti wants to offer 1.5 lakh electric vehicles consistently till 2030, and thus cross 50 lakh car sales.
At the present time, Maruti is in charge of half of all cars sold in India; and now, they need an indistinguishable leadership for electric vehicles as well.
In any case, there has been some ongoing discussions related with electric cars from Tata and Mahindra, which Maruti can expect for them too.
After Govt. endorsed Tata Motors and Mahnidra to fabricate electric cars for them, Govt. authorities have raised dissensions against the cars delivered.
Despite the fact that Tata Motors have reacted to the affirmations, there can be antagonism and worries related with electric vehicles, and if Maruti truly needs to make a mark in such manner, at that point they should change the market paradigm.
