Delhi : News from the 2023 Auto Show: At the 2023 Auto Expo, Hyundai introduced the Rs. 44.9 lakh IONIQ 5 electric SUV. Hyundai's Electric Global Modular Platform (E-GMP) is used to construct the IONIQ 5 model . Faster charging, a longer driving range, more interior space, and improved handling are all made possible by this dedicated battery electric vehicle architecture. The placement of the battery pack guarantees appropriate weight distribution and enhances handling performance.

During the Auto Expo event, Morris Garages India revealed two technologically advanced, highly safe, and emission-free electric vehicles (EVs) to reinforce its positioning as an auto-tech brand. The MG4 is an all-electric hatchback, and the MG EHS is an SUV with a plug-in hybrid powertrain.

At Auto Expo 2023, JBM Auto debuted its Galaxy, its first self-designed and self-manufactured electric luxury coach. A subsidiary of the USD 2.2 billion JBM group, the company also displayed its new line of e-buses, which includes municipal buses, staff buses, and school buses.

The 'eVX' electric SUV idea from Suzuki Motor Corporation is expected to go on sale in 2025.

Maruti Suzuki India, the company's Indian subsidiary, is one of the major manufacturers taking part in the exhibition, which comes back after a three-year hiatus.

A mid-size electric SUV concept called the Concept eVX was created by Suzuki Motor Corporation (SMC), a Japanese company. It will be powered by a 60 kWh battery pack with a single charge providing a driving range of up to 550 kilometres.

"By 2025, we want to get it on the market. The Suzuki Group prioritises combating global warming, "Toshihiro Suzuki, the president and representative director of SMC, remarked when introducing the product at the expo.

In addition, he added "In an effort to reduce the greenhouse gas emissions our company produces, we are supporting a number of international initiatives. Reducing CO2 emissions by using our products is a crucial step. We will invest 100 billion rupees (Rs 10,000 crore) in India to produce BEVs (Battery Electric Vehicles) and their batteries, as was announced in March of last year."

The WagonR Flex Fuel prototype, the Brezza S-CNG, and the Grand Vitara Intelligent Electric Hybrid are just a few of the environmentally friendly goods that Maruti Suzuki is showcasing. We have committed to bringing new goods, technology, investments, and facilities to India, with a focus on Aatma Nirbhar Bharat.

Maruti Suzuki India Ltd Managing Director & CEO Hisashi Takeuchi stated, "We believe in researching a wide spectrum of technologies including hybrids, CNG, bio-CNG, ethanol, and electric to meet Government of India's dual objectives of decreasing oil-import bill and Carbon Net Zero by 2070."

Moreover, he stated that localization and scalability are both important components of the holistic approach to electric vehicles.

Takeuchi claimed that Suzuki's Concept eVX, which is making its premiere in India, is the company's first ever worldwide strategic electric vehicle.
