It will be operational by 2025 and will have a production capacity of 2.5 lakh units. Once it is fully operational, the plant will be able to produce 10 lakh vehicles annually. 

As for the new products, Maruti has confirmed the launch of six new electric cars across various segments by 2030. It expects EVs to make up at least 15 percent of its total sales. The first battery-powered car will be the production version of the eVX concept that was showcased at the Auto Expo 2023. The remaining EVs are also likely to be compact vehicles, with the teaser previewing a variety of silhouettes, hinting at potential directions for the upcoming models.
