Suzuki’s first electric vehicle (EV) has been spied testing in Poland, and it looks much like the eVX concept car from earlier this year.
Photos published by Polish outlet Auto Galeria show the vehicle wrapped in a thin camouflage and featuring different wheels and what appear to be prototype lighting units.
However, the overall shape of the vehicle closely resembles the concept shown in Delhi in January.
While the concept’s interior wasn’t shown, this prototype was spied with its door open.
Despite a surplus of camouflage we can see a large digital instrument cluster and central touchscreen situated in the same assembly.
The concept crossover is Hyundai Kona-sized (4300mm long) and based on the company’s very limited statements may be available with dual-motor all-wheel drive.
The production model will reportedly be launched in January or February 2025 by the Indian subsidiary of Suzuki, but is also being developed for global markets.
We understand Europe will be the priority region outside on India, with Australia down the pecking order.
“The eVX is an all-electric concept SUV derived out of Suzuki’s first global strategic EV. It is scheduled to be introduced to the market by 2025,” the company says.
“The eVX is a BEV model that combines Suzuki’s strong 4×4 DNA with the advanced features of the latest BEVs. The exterior is designed to be instantly recognisable as a Suzuki SUV. In addition, it aims to carry forward the brand’s 4×4 legacy into the new electric era.”
The only other information officially confirmed is the fitment of a 60kWh battery pack and a driving range of 550km on the Indian testing cycle, likely to be higher than what its WLTP rating will be.
There should also be an entry-level version that will come with a smaller battery of around 48kWh with around 400km of range.
We have it on good authority that the new model (codenamed YV8 internally) is going to use a new dedicated EV architecture to be shared with Toyota – which will make its own version as part of a wide-ranging EV rollout.
Suzuki has also discussed plans to use a Porsche Taycan-style multi-speed EV transmission made by Canadian company Inmotive Inc. designed to cut costs as well as improve efficiency.
