6. Maruti Suzuki Wagon R EV
The Maruti Suzuki Wagon R EV is expected to have a real-world range of roughly 130km, according to sources privy to the project. The figure, sources claim, will be achievable in regular Indian city driving conditions and at typical average speeds. However, as with all EVs, the range will be inversely proportional to speed. A consistent higher speed will bring the range down to 100km, we are told. The official certified range is expected to be much higher than 130km, though.
A potential 130km real-world range will give the Maruti Suzuki Wagon R EV a degree of flexibility that’s so far missing in existing electric models like the Mahindra Electric e2O.
The Wagon R EV for India is expected to feature a spacious cabin just like its conventionally powered sibling. The electric version of the Wagon R will come under the ambit of the government’s EV-promoting FAME 2 scheme and is also expected to benefit from state subsidies. In all, the subsidies could help bring down the final price for a buyer to somewhere around Rs 10 -14.5 lakh.
