An electric WagonR will surely excite many Maruti Suzuki loyalists. The brand is already popular for offering higher value per km and with an EV in sight, Maruti Suzuki has a chance to further expand its offerings. A new WagonR electric car has been spotted in the forest near Manesar near Maruti Suzuki’s Gurgaon plant. While the WagonR Electric has been spotted before, it’s not entirely clear this time around, which gives us a pretty good look at the front and rear of the new car.
The Maruti Suzuki WagonR Electric comes with a few design changes in comparison to the current model, which comes with an internal combustion engine (ICE). The front grille has been omitted, especially in EV fashion. This is done to reduce the amount of drag faced by the moving car. The headlamps have also become slim and sleek from wide and big. This gives the WagonR a very distinctive face as compared to the current model. The fog lamp housing has also been modified to accommodate the design changes on the WagonR electric version.
The rear is also a bit different with a new set of taillamps and diffuser cutting through the rear bumper. It gives an overall sleek look to the car. The sides are almost identical to the current version of the ICE WagonR.
We don’t get to see the interiors of the new WagonR Electric. However, it is safe to assume that the WagonR Electric will come with a better feature list than its ICE counterpart. We may also get a digital instrument cluster to reign along with the electric-ness of the vehicle.
Now coming to the most important question. When will this car be launched in India? Had it been any other Maruti Suzuki vehicle, we could have been sure of an imminent launch date. However, Maruti Suzuki has clearly stated that it plans to introduce its first electric car in India by 2025. After almost three years, we can’t really trust this model that was ever seen on Indian roads on the streets of Manesar. , However, we may get an updated version of this vehicle down the line.
