TELL US ABOUT THE FUTURO E CONCEPT?
First, the Futuro-e is more of a design study and much less of a concept. Its our portrayal of what our customers, who are young, aspirational and progessive are looking for. Its’s a coupe style electric SUV, with clean design and strong geometric influences that set the tone for our future electric and hybrid vehicles.
TELL US ABOUT MARUTI’S EV ROADMAP
It’s not just electrics, we are looking at green mobility through multiple avenues. We already have CNG, and smart hybrids across our entire range. We are also looking at strong hybrids that we have gained from our tie-up with Toyota. We already have a strong hybrid system for the Swift and we are testing the viability of Toyota’s system with several of our models across the spectrum. Finally, we have electric vehicles which are the future!
