By 2030, Suzuki Jimny EV is expected
Suzuki Motor Corporation, the parent company of Maruti, the largest automaker in India, will launch five new electric vehicles in Europe in 2024 as part of its worldwide strategy plan and commit to becoming carbon neutral by the year 2050. The proposal also includes a £3 billion investment in battery research and development. Additionally, Suzuki has revealed its EV intentions for India.\
Suzuki will introduce a production version of its recently unveiled EVX concept as its first fully electric car before sales of the Jimny Electric begin.
2023 Suzuki Jimny EV: Details
The 60kWh battery in the EVX, which was showcased at the Auto Expo 2023 in India, will provide a range of around 550 km. Given its significantly smaller size, the electric Jimny is unlikely to share the underpinnings of the eVX, and is anticipated to employ a modified version of the combustion car’s chassis, in order to keep its cost down.
The only engine option for the current Jimny 3-door, sold internationally, is a 1.5-liter naturally aspirated petrol unit that produces 100 horsepower and 129 Nm of peak torque. Hence, the power and torque of the electric version will improve significantly.
Suzuki has not yet verified the electric Jimny’s powertrain specifications, but the official preview image hints that it will keep its characteristic two-box shape, 5-slat grille, and squat proportions. However, the new star-shaped headlights suggest a minor change.
