Reason behind choosing the Maruti Suzuki Wagon R instead of the brand’s entry level and most sold model Alto is the five-seater tallboy hatchback can carry the weight of the battery pack better than its sibling. The car will receive the battery pack, electric motor and the controller, while the other parts will remain unchanged.

Maruti Suzuki has been keen to enter the electric vehicle segment of Indian market as the zero emission mobility is being significant with every passing year. Suzuki will produce the battery packs for the electric vehicles domestically in order to keep the pricing of these cars competitive. Also, Suzuki has partnered with Toyota in global level to develop the electric vehicle technology and components. The upcoming Maruti Suzuki Wagon R EV will certainly come bearing the fruits of that global partnership.

Presently, Maruti Suzuki manufactures the Wagon R hatchback in its Gurugram plant. Sold in both petrol and CNG options, this hatchback has become very popular thanks to its practicality, value for money as a city car. Launched in 1999, the Maruti Suzuki Wagon R has gone through several minor updates and changes, but the basic silhouette remained same. The car comes available in both manual and AGS options and the automaker has sold more than 20 lakh units of this model in India.
