Maruti Suzuki in a series of patent filings has registered names like ‘Poolkar’, ‘Charge Hub’ and 'Smart Charge', fuelling speculation about its upcoming products and services. The biggest car manufacturer in India has been working on its electric vehicle strategy, under which, the automaker aims to bring its first-ever electric car, based on the eVX concept, which was showcased at the Auto Expo 2023 for the first time. The patent filing for names like ‘Charge Hub’ and ‘Smart Charge’ is possibly related to the OEM's EV strategy.

The names for which Maruti Suzuki has filed patents hint that the automaker may set up its own charging stations, which would be christened as Maruti Suzuki Charge Hub. The ‘Smart Charge’ too is possibly related to this. It could be Maruti Suzuki's way of christening the fast-charging technology. However, the automaker has not revealed anything officially. Interestingly, this patent filing comes immediately after Hyundai announced the launch of 11 ultra-fast electric vehicle charging stations in six cities across the country.
