    These models will pave the way for a new electric vehicle that is expected to be a small SUV. The new EV will be based on the eVX concept and is anticipated to debut in the second half of 2025.
    Suzuki's upcoming eVX will have a dual-motor AWD configuration. It will also be equipped with a 60 kWh battery pack. On a full charge, the new EV is expected to deliver up to 550 km.
