“We believe in exploring a full spectrum of technologies like hybrids, CNG, bio-CNG, ethanol, and electric to support the Government of India’s twin objectives of reducing the oil import bill and reaching Carbon Net Zero by 2070. Our approach to electric vehicles is holistic in terms of scale and localization. The Concept eVX is Suzuki’s first global strategic electric vehicle, and I am excited that it debuts here in India. It brings exciting urban SUV styling through its sharp design language, and as a battery electric vehicle, it purposefully reinforces our commitment to environmental friendliness and sustainability.”
