Maruti Suzuki's first electric model, the eVX, has been seen undergoing testing in India ahead of its official launch. The new test mule reveals a slew of features, including projector headlamps, modified front and rear bumpers, new alloy wheels, LED taillights, rear door handles positioned on the C-pillar, and a shark fin antenna. The most recent spy photos of the EV offer a decent glimpse into the eVX's cabin, which stands out from the company's other models. The EV appears to include a two-spoke multifunction steering wheel, an auto-dimming IRVM, a rotary dial for drive modes, and a new freestanding touchscreen infotainment system.
