In a bold move, Maruti Suzuki is set to embark on Vision 3.0, a strategic plan that includes doubling production capacity to four million units, tripling exports, and expanding its model portfolio from 17 to 28 by the end of the decade. This audacious goal involves the launch of eight new models over the next three to four years, featuring a diverse range of powertrains, including EVs, hybrids, petrol, CNG, flex-fuel, and ethanol-powered cars.

  • 1. New Maruti Swift, Dzire (YED): The next-gen hatch and compact sedan siblings are on the horizon, with the Swift expected to lead the way, focusing on re-establishing its brand value as a sporty hatch. The Dzire will sport more upmarket looks with added chrome and lighter interior shades, featuring the new Z-series 1.2-litre petrol engine.
  • 2. Maruti’s XUV700, Alcazar Rival (Y17): A three-row version of the Grand Vitara (Y17) is in development, marking the first Maruti model to roll out from the new Kharkhoda plant. Expected powertrains include petrol, a Toyota hybrid, and CNG, competing with the likes of XUV700, Alcazar, and Safari.
  • 3. Maruti’s Punch-Rivalling SUV (Y43): Capitalizing on the sub-four-metre SUV market, Maruti plans to introduce a Punch-rivaling SUV, positioned below the Brezza, offering SUV styling to attract budget-conscious buyers.
  • 4. Suzuki Spacia-Based MPV (YDB): A new compact MPV (YDB) based on the Suzuki Spacia is set to debut in 2026, potentially rivaling the Triber. It may feature a stretched version, offering a cleverly designed three-row cabin and a decent features list suitable for the Nexa brand.
  • 5. Maruti eVX SUV (YY8): Maruti’s entry into the electric vehicle market will be marked by a midsize electric SUV, the eVX, challenging rivals like the Creta. Built on a bespoke electric platform, it is expected to offer two battery pack options with a maximum range of around 550km.
  • 6. Maruti’s Electric MPV (YMC): Developed on the born-EV architecture in collaboration with Toyota, an electric MPV is in the pipeline, set to be Maruti’s first electric MPV, with shared components, EV powertrain, and battery options with the eVX.
  • 7. Suzuki eWX-Based Small Electric Hatch (K-EV): Maruti is developing a low-cost electric vehicle based on the bespoke K-EV platform, with the first model expected to be an all-new EV, likely derived from the eWX concept showcased at the Japan Mobility Show.

Maruti Suzuki’s aggressive expansion and commitment to diverse powertrains signal a dynamic future for the brand, aiming to cater to a wide range of consumer preferences and contribute significantly to India’s evolving automotive landscape.
