The anticipation for an electrified Maruti Suzuki has been mounting ever since the company unveiled the eVX, Suzuki's first electric vehicle, at the 2023 Auto Expo. Suzuki has now confirmed that the production version of the eVX SUV will make its debut in 2025, marking a significant milestone in the company's electrification journey. However, recent reports suggest that Maruti Suzuki is not stopping there and is also working on a fully electric minivan slated to debut in the Indian market by September 2026.

Codename YMC, this electric MPV will be a first for Suzuki, being the first electric MPV to bear the Suzuki emblem. It is expected to share its underpinnings with the upcoming Grand Vitara-sized SUV and will ride on the innovative "27PL skateboard" architecture. This architecture, a collaborative effort between Suzuki and Toyota, is designed to accommodate various body styles.
