Maruti Suzuki eVX electric SUV launch delayed

The launch of Toyota's version of the eVX is also expected to be delayed.

According to a media report, the launch of the Maruti eVX electric SUV has been delayed by a few months. The EV is now expected to go into production in February 2025.

The report states that Maruti is currently facing multiple battery supply and software challenges. While the company is trying to address the issues, it has resulted in the start of production (SOP) getting delayed by at least 5 months.

Maruti Suzuki plans to export the majority of the eVXs produced in India. It is said that almost 75-80% of the 1.5 lakh units planned will be shipped to overseas markets. However, the latest reports indicate that eVX shipments to Europe and Japan will only commence sometime next year.

Toyota also plans to introduce its version of the eVX electric SUV. Its launch is also likely to be affected by the supply chain and software issues.
