Maruti’s First e-SUV To Be Manufactured In Gujarat

| Updated: December 7, 2023 15:54

India’s leading car manufacturer Maruti Suzuki announced that the company will set up a ₹3,100 crore fourth car manufacturing plant in Gujarat to manufacture its first electric SUV.

The company will set up a new car manufacturing plant within its existing factory at Hansalpur in Ahmedabad district, Maruti Suzuki Executive Director (Corporate Affairs) Rahul Bharti said.

Bharti did not disclose the capacity of the fourth plant for manufacturing the electric vehicle. The company had set up its second and third car manufacturing plants in January 2019 and April 2021, respectively.

“Our first EV, an SUV, will be launched in the next financial year of 2024-25. It will come out from SMG’s Gujarat plant. At present, the entire SMG facility at Hansalpur has three plants – plant A, B and C. Now, to manufacture the EV, a new plant, also called a production line, will be added there,”said Bharti.

The upcoming EV SUV, to be produced here at the SMG plant, will be exported too, he added.

In March 2022, SMG’s parent firm Suzuki Motor Corporation signed an MoU with the Gujarat government to invest Rs 3,100 crore in the Hansalpur plant for EV manufacturing, Bharti said.

“Our EV concept car has already been unveiled. It will be a high-specification SUV having 550 km range (on a single charge) and a 60-kilowatt-hour battery,” he said, adding that no specific number has been finalised yet about the number of units to be rolled out from the Gujarat plant.

In another announcement, the company said the SMG plant has surpassed the milestone of 3 million cumulative production. The three-millionth car was rolled out from the plant on December 4.

This Gujarat facility of Maruti Suzuki has an annual production capacity of 7.5 lakh units, and vehicles manufactured here are sold in both domestic as well as export markets. The company manufactures Baleno, Swift, Dzire, Fronx and Tour S models at this facility, Bharti said.
