Maruti Posts Cryptic Message; Electric WagonR Or Hybrid Baleno Launch On The Cards?

New Delhi: Maruti Suzuki has posted a teaser with a cryptic message, raising speculation that the country’s biggest carmaker could be launching a hybrid or electric car.

The image says “We’re going to tell you everything” with the message, “Shhhhh! Don’t tell anyone just yet…”

If this is indeed a teaser of an upcoming car, there are two possibilities. It could either be the hybrid version of the Baleno or an all-electric WagonR which Maruti is believed to be developing.

The Baleno Hybrid will be using the 1.2-litre petrol engine that makes 91 BHP power and 118 Nm torque along with a 10 kW electric motor generating 30 Nm torque.

The WagonR EV has been on the cards for some time with test mules spotted in and around Delhi quite a few times. It is believed to use 72 V electric motor with a 10-25 kWh lithium-ion battery. However, there have been reports that the project could have been discontinued for India due to rising costs.
