The Maruti Futuro-e has been designed in India.
At Auto Expo 2020, the Maruti Concept Futuro-e celebrates its world premiere. This is the greatest debut at the 2020 Delhi Motor Sho. The Maruti Concept Futuro-e is the most impressive model ever seen in Maruti Suzuki. Meanwhile, leaving aside the cheesy name. The conceptualization and design are done by the very own design team of Maruti Suzuki Japan. By Japan or Italy-based Suzuki design team.
Naturally, its body style is the biggest attraction of the Maruti concept Futuro-e.
It’s a mix of an SUV and a coupe that was never tested in a small car in India. One can only hope that this concept appears to be almost radical in its production version. When it comes to designing subcompact SUVs, Toyota C‐HR and Nissan Juke are a thing of the past.
It is not only his cup silhouette and his bold proportions that attracts the Maruti Concept Futuro-e. It’s a pure electric vehicle. As it runs silently, an artificial sound was given to make its presence felt as it moved. Interestingly enough, this is a jet plane’s sound. Truly, no model can be as radical as that of Maruti Suzuki.
Mother’s the word on the transformation into a production model of the Maruti Concept Futuro-e show car. We expect a road-ready version that will break cover by the end of 2021. It can be supplied both as an ICE and an EV model. It is certain that a B premium B-segment SUV-coupé against traditional B-SUVs such as Kia Seltos and Hyundai Creta will be the production model.
