GUWAHATI: The WagonR-electric hatchback with a Suzuki logo intact has been spotted testing in India.
Earlier this month, images of the WagonR EV had surfaced online, but the badges(Logo) were covered.
Automotive news portal GaadiWaadi has claimed that the electric version of the Suzuki WagonR will go on sale in Europe by 2023 and is expected to launch in India next year.
According to Gaadiwaadi, only last week, the undisguised Wagon R EV’s first set of spy pictures came up on the internet. Compared to the regular version, it gets exterior changes to differentiate itself from the IC-engined sibling and is expected to go on sale sometime later this year or in early 2022 in India judging by its production-ready looks. It will be interesting to see the design changes it will have when badged as a Suzuki but details regarding its electric powertrain are scarce. Suzuki and Toyota are involved in a mutually beneficial partnership, which sees the latter sharing battery electric vehicle systems with its Japanese compatriot. In India, Toyota had already launched two rebadged Maruti Suzuki vehicles under its own banner.
It is to be mentioned that the same model is believed to be rebadged as a Toyota.
