The anticipation around the Auto Expo 2018 is building up and one of the main reasons for this is the amount of attention electric cars are getting. Electric mobility and electric cars are going to take centre stage this year as there are close to 12 new EV start-up companies that will take part in the biennial motor show. Main stream manufacturers too are going to display their electric mobility prowess and these include Maruti Suzuki, Hyundai, Renault, Tata Motors and Mercedes-Benz to name a few. With India moving towards electric mobility by 2030, this is a key step in that direction. Let’s take a look at some of these EVs that will take centre-stage at the Auto Expo 2018.
Maruti Suzuki e-Survivor Concept
Maruti Suzuki first showcased the e-Survivor Concept at the 2017 Tokyo Motor Show. The e-Survivor Concept is Maruti’s first concept EV and pays tribute to Suzuki’s 4-Wheel Drive heritage. It’s a quirky SUV and builds upon the success of the Jimny and Vitara. The Suzuki e-Survivor comes with four in-wheel electric motors, two-seats without a roof, and extremely short overhangs at both front and rear axles. The Suzuki e-Survivor concept also brings in autonomous technology for future mobility.
