Suzuki takes first step into EV with the most conceptual of concepts

featured image

Yes, Suzuki still makes cars. Even better, it’s the latest legacy automaker making its first attempt at delivering an electric vehicle to market. During Auto Expo 2023, Suzuki unveiled the world premiere of its eVX EV concept – an SUV that… well, looks quite similar to a combustion EV. Here’s what we know so far, as the automaker looks to flesh out that concept.

Although the Suzuki brand has faded from the minds of many US consumers, the Japanese automaker still operates more than 30 production facilities in over 20 countries around the world.

With that comes over 110 years of experience, which he carried over to other segments such as ATVs, outboard engines and motorcycles, where he remains a household name. The automaker still has several combustion cars in production for markets around the world and has introduced some interesting concepts over the years (nothing recently, though).

Suzuki’s latest concept, which made its global debut today, gives the public a preview of its first EV… or at least, some iteration of it before it goes into production in a few years. Revel in the Suzuki eVX EV.

Suzuki debuts EV concept ahead of production in 2025

Suzuki executives unveiled the eVX EV concept in front of a crowd in India today during Auto Expo 2023. The all-electric concept is expected to evolve into the automaker’s first global strategic EV, targeting market entry in 2025.

Suzuki has shared very little about this SUV that looks rather large and not-so-aerodynamic (but hey, they have two years to figure that one out, right?) Here’s what we know:

  • Length 4,300 mm x Width 1,800 mm x Height 1,600 mm
  • Battery capacity: 60 kWh
  • Range: 550 km (342 miles) (Modified Indian Driving Cycle – MIDC)

It’s not bad for its size, but it’s hard to rate on the MIDC rather than an official EPA rating. There’s also the fact that this is a concept, and we’d be surprised if this EV on display could do more than pop in and out of Suzuki’s booth at this point. Company President Toshihiro Suzuki spoke during the premiere:

I am pleased to introduce the eVX, our first global strategic EV. At the Suzuki Group, addressing global warming is a top priority. We are promoting a series of global measures to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Suzuki will continue to provide valuable products to our customers around the world, optimizing them for the way different people live and drive.

It will be interesting to see how this Suzuki EV (hopefully) evolves for 2025 production. Looking forward to keeping an eye on this one.

Before I say anything in the comments below, please know that I am aware that this is just a concept. Concepts don’t usually press the needle for their loyal EV aficionados, and that’s okay.

But that’s Suzuki! Creators of the… well, I can’t name any of their specific car models, but I’ll admit I’ve never been a car guy – just an EV guy.

I really forgot about this company, and this could easily be the first time we’ve covered it from an automotive perspective. That has to account for some notability, doesn’t it? Genuinely, it’s worth covering despite its lack of specs and its “copy-and-paste” SUV look, because we now have another legacy automaker trying to build at least one EV. This is commendable.

Whether it will be successful remains to be seen, but Suzuki has entered the EV arena and we are happy to have it. It would be sweeter if it increased battery capacity, right?
