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!
