| | Suzuki to test electric 2-wheelers on Indian roads in 2020
Milan: Amid the ongoing industry-wide push for moving to electric vehicle (EV) technology, Japanese automaker Suzuki Motor抯 two-wheeler unit may start testing its electric scooter on the streets of India as soon as next year, but will likely wait for infrastructure to develop before marketing the product. |
"We will respect the government policy. We will make some prototypes. But there is no infrastructure ?the charging system, battery station,?said Satoshi Uchida, the managing director of Suzuki Motorcycle India.
When the company eventually launches its electric two-wheelers in India, it stands to benefit from the EV infrastructure of Maruti Suzuki, the country抯 largest carmaker and Suzuki Motor抯 cash cow.
"We can coordinate with Maruti, using the same core technology; not only technology but (even their vendor and EV infrastructure) network. It is our advantage,?Satoshi told ET on the sidelines of EICMA 2019 here.
