The upcoming Maruti Suzuki electric Wagon R has been spotted testing again. The vehicle has been snapped by folks at Powerdrift when it was undergoing test runs. Maruti Suzuki had announced a few days back that it has flagged off 50 EV prototypes for testing. India's leading carmaker showcased its first ever electric car for the first time at the 2018 MOVE summit that took place last month. The upcoming Maruti Suzuki Wagon R electric will come based on the Solio that is currently on sale in the global markets. The EV will have the same tall boy design as the Wagon R. Maruti Suzuki might come with a different name for its electric car and hence, it cannot be said with surety if the company will retain the Wagon R badge for its EV.
