Though the mainstay at the Maruti Suzuki pavilion will be the Maruti Futuro-e concept. The Maruti Suzuki Futuro-e concept is an electric coupe-style SUV vehicle and will rival the Tata Nexon EV and MG ZS EV. Maruti has not given any hint regarding the pricing of the SUV, but since it is intended for the Indian market, we speculate the pricing to be very competitive expected price range to be between Rs 15-20 lakh.
Maruti Suzuki will use the Auto Expo as a platform to showcase a new design language for the future utility vehicles. This would mean that there will be significant design changes cosmetically for the future models to come up.
