  • The Futuro-E will be based on Maruti’s Heartect platform and will bear similarities with the XL5.

  • The all-electric WagonR is likely to offer a range of around 200km on a single charge.

  • It is likely to get a 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system and auto climate control.

  • Maruti Suzuki has hinted that the small EV could cost over Rs 9 lakh.

Maruti has been testing the WagonR-based EV for quite some time now. We have now got our hands on a couple of shots that confirm the possibility of Maruti’s entry-level EV being based on its upcoming premium version of the WagonR, the XL5.

As per the spy shots, it can easily be made out that it will bear a lot in common with the WagonR. It is likely to sport a split headlamp setup with the larger circular headlamp placed below, a sleeker grille, and top-mounted DRLs looks pretty much the same as the one on the XL5. It is also expected to feature the Ignis’ 15-inch alloy wheels which can clearly be seen in the shots.

It will be based on the Heartect platform and is likely to offer a range of around 200km. Meanwhile, Maruti has already filed a trademark for ‘Futuro-E’, which could be the name of the all-electric WagonR. We expect Maruti to showcase the Futuro-E and the XL5 at Auto Expo 2020. The EV is expected to be launched in 2021 and is expected to be priced north of Rs 9 lakh, as per the carmaker.
