Maruti is an expert at making cheap (read VFM) cars with expensive maintenance, while Toyota makes over-priced cars with cheap maintenance. Let's pray that (with the alliance), they learn to make VFM cars with cheap maintenance, and not the other way round.

Suzuki-Toyota collaboration update:

Collaboration with Toyota in the area of technology, environment, IT and safety started. It could extend to product-sharing in future.

Suzuki could provide Toyota with some product and have a chance to supply small car technology.

Unfortunately, our experience with Volkswagen was not that good. Thankfully, Suzuki and Toyota are collaborating well

Suzuki and Toyota Motor partnership to enormously benefit Maruti Suzuki- Chairman - Maruti Suzuki.

Quote:
You are aware of the agreement between Suzuki, Japan and Toyota, Japan to create a partnership to deal with issues. Toyota is the global leader in a number of patents held for hybrids and electric vehicle technology. I believe this agreement, which may reach finalisation in short time, will be of enormous benefit for the future of the company,
Quote:

Maruti Suzuki outlines its electric plans. Will go ahead with Toyota in this venture. Would meet the deadline as set by the govt. on introduction of EV's.

Will get into the full scope including Li ion batteries for a cost effective solution. Will use its full network in its EV plan.

Quote:
the upcoming joint venture between Toyota and Suzuki and how Maruti Suzuki would benefit greatly from the technological solutions in the EV space that Toyota couple provide - including cutting edge hardware and patents
Quote:
Each dealership or service centre can have a charger/super-charger as standard and Maruti Suzuki can also invest in having its own mega network of charging points across the country to offer a quick charge solution.
Quote:
considering the scale at which Maruti Suzuki generally operates, and considering the fact that the Indian automaker will have its own plant to make Li-On batteries, the cost of components would be much lower than what it is today. All in all, electric mobility will only be accepted in India with a bottom to top approach by the collective automakers and Maruti Suzuki could start a revolution.

With the EV Push the Toyota -Suzuki alliance will crystallize soon. EV tech, bigger vehicles and Suzuki branded Toyota cars ?

Maruti Suzuki's chairman's view:( Maruti to get tech. access for larger vehicles- Suzuki branded Toyota Products?)

Quote:
benefits are likely to accrue from parent Suzuki’s alliance with Toyota. The partnership, the contours of which are being firmed up in Japan, may help the company gain access to alternative tech and to larger vehicles.
Quote:
Toyota’s tech bank is far bigger than Suzuki’s. If that becomes available, we have access to technology, which will take us way into the future and we will in many ways remain in terms of the technology availability, as good as any other company in the world… Depending on what they agree, I could get bigger products from Toyota to sell, which will be engineered for India

Toyota's electric ambitions attract like-minded Japanese peers. Suzuki is likely to participate in the EV program.

Suzuki is likely to take a roughly 5% stake in the venture.

Suzuki Motor is considering teaming up with Toyota Motor and Mazda Motor on electric vehicle technologies.

Quote:
Toyota, Mazda and Denso -- a Toyota group parts supplier -- on Thursday announced EV C.A. Spirit, a venture to develop design methods that can be applied to vehicles of varying shapes and sizes, as well as to key technologies such as motor and battery control.
Quote:
Toyota will own a 90% stake in the new company, with Mazda and Denso each taking a 5% interest.

Toyota - Mazda - Denso - Suzuki alliance could drive to redefine the EV - compact cars making it affordable.

Quote:
An exciting news comes from Suzuki, which is starting to consider strengthening the alliance of Toyota-Mazda-Denso. Suzuki itself has the advantages of small-sized car segment and a very strong base in the Indian market, one of the world's respected automotive market.

Quote:
Toyota, Mazda and Denso have joined to develop electric-powered cars by exerting their respective advantages, such as Toyota with its advantages in the field of architecture, Mazda with computer modeling, and Denso with its ability in the field of electronic parts.

Suzuki is also developing future cars amid quite stringent regulations on vehicle emissions standards. Suzuki and Toyota itself had actually made an agreement in early 2017, where the two brands will partner and share in terms of technology and production and safety devices. So it could be the Toyota-Mazda-Denso alliance will be one of the programs in the agreement between Toyota and Suzuki
Quote:
Alliance named EV C.A. Spirit Corp. itself will be located in Nagoya, Japan and will work to conduct research and development on the basic structure of an electric car. Where Toyota with its TNGA will be the basic architecture of the teesebut products. With the results of this alliance research, each manufacturer can flexibly develop an electric car, whether small cars, passenger cars or lightweight cars.

If true Suzuki will join this alliance, then of course this alliance will be stronger and become a win-win solution for the problem of electric cars.
