Maruti Suzuki Futuro-e previews new EV crossover

Maruti Suzuki has teased a new all-electric crossover concept called the Futuro-e, which is set to be revealed at the upcoming Auto Expo 2020 in India in February. The concept serves as preview of the brand’s new global design language, and is said to take into consideration the “evolving desires of the country’s aspirational youth.”

“The design of Futuro-e is a fascinating fusion of a coupe with an SUV. It is a significant departure from the mainstream SUV architecture and is expected to raise the design bar of utility vehicles in India,” said CV Raman, senior executive director (engineering) at Maruti Suzuki India.

The sole image provided depicts a crossover with a low-slung, sloping roofline as well as LED light signatures on both ends that have a rather unique look to them. According to IndianAutosBlog, the Futuro-e will be a B-segment vehicle, occupying the same space as the Tata Nexon EV.

For now, details about the concept’s electric powertrain remain a mystery, but reports claim the production version will be launched in India towards the end of 2020, with a Toyota-badged version likely following in 2021.

        Yeah… Perodua should be made to payback all the billions they got from incentives and tax deductions and slushing profits out of Malaysia. They are just a car assembler doing rebadges not a real National Car producer.

    The world of automotive is advancing by investing in R&D for EV development. Every carmakers now have at least 1 EV, Hybrid or either PHEV. As the world is going towards Game-Changing EV, petrol and diesel cars are slowly being left behind. While the world is going towards EV, Proton are also developing their own EV but are using goverment’s money. Unfortunately, 5 years after Proton showcased their Game-Changing Iriz EV, Proton never sold it to the public. It’s 2020 already, confirmed already Iriz EV Game Over, 1 Billion Ringgit also Game Over going down to the drain
