While India isn’t an electric market yet, Maruti Suzuki has already announced plans to launch an electric car – the new Wagon R in India by 2020.
Considering an already lower cost for the base car and even lower GST rates for electric cars, the K-ZE will be a low cost electric car that the country is looking for and will have.
The price tag of the car hasn’t been revealed yet, though the French automakers have attached the word ‘affordable’ with their electric concept.
The Renault K-ZE will hit the Chinese auto market first, before going global.
