Small-car specialist Suzuki has unveiled its first all-electric concept vehicle.

The Japanese car maker says the eVX – emotional versatile cruiser – is a compact sports-utility vehicle (SUV) that combines “Suzuki’s 4x4 DNA with the most advanced features currently available in battery electric vehicles”.

The Suzuki eVX is set to join a line-up of global Suzuki SUVs in 2025 that will offer both traditional internal combustion engines and modern hybrid propulsion. 

This includes the new Suzuki Grand Vitara, which is scheduled for its South African launch this year, and which will have the option of a hybrid drivetrain.

“I am delighted to unveil the eVX, our first global strategic EV,” says Suzuki president Toshihiro Suzuki.

”At the Suzuki Group, addressing global warming is a priority. We are promoting a range of global measures to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.”

The Suzuki eVX will be fitted with a 60 kWh battery system and electric motors. It promises an electric-only range of 550 km.

The concept design has an overall length of 4 300 mm, a width of 1 800 mm and height of 1 600 mm. 

This makes it slightly larger than the current-generation Suzuki Vitara.

Suzuki Auto South Africa says it joins the rest of the Suzuki world to celebrate the unveiling of the brand’s first electric SUV.

“While no more information is currently available on the Suzuki eVX in its current concept form, Suzuki Auto South Africa will closely study its final development and its feasibility for the South African market,” notes the company.

“It will provide more information on this at the global rollout of the production version of the Suzuki eVX from 2025 onwards.”
